WVU 2024 Recruit Robby Martin Attends Home Opener



West Virginia football recruit Robby Martin paid a visit to Morgantown on Saturday, taking in the Mountaineers’ home opener against Kansas.

Martin, a junior offensive lineman from Huntington, West Virginia, gave multiple positive remarks about his experience at Milan Puskar Stadium.

“I had a really great time,” Martin said during an interview Monday night. “I like the environment in the stadium. The team had great energy on the sideline before the game, and the fans had great energy at the start of the game. I definitely wish they could’ve won, though.”

Martin made the over 200-mile trip to West Virginia’s campus, along with a group of six of his friends and teammates from Huntington High School, which is about three hours Southwest of Morgantown.

He said this made the visit a lot more enjoyable.

“I liked being able to share the experience with them,” Martin said. “It made it worth my while. We got to watch other games going on around campus while the coaches were busy. Plus we ate and watched the team warm up from the sideline before the game.”

Standing at 6-foot-4, 275 pounds, Martin is a 3-star recruit on 247Sports, while being rated four stars by Rivals. He currently holds 19 total Division I offers, 14 in the FBS. They include West Virginia, who offered Martin this past spring near the conclusion of his sophomore year.

His other interested schools are Akron, Appalachian State, Ball State, Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Kent State, Marshall, North Carolina State, Miami, Penn State and Tennessee.

Martin also attended a camp at West Virginia in June, where he said he received viable feedback from the Mountaineer coaching staff on what he does well, and where he can improve, as an offensive lineman.

“The big thing was my pass protection,” Martin said. “They told me things they like, but I still have some things I have to work on. Right now, I feel that I’m an ‘okay’ player. I have to keep working and be the best that I can be.”

Martin added he has enjoyed communicating with West Virginia head coach Neal Brown, as well as assistants Matt Moore and Dontae Wright. Brown attended Huntington’s season opener against Spring Valley (WVa.) on Aug. 26.

Through two games, Martin has helped Huntington’s offense produce an overage of 41 points per contest.

“My next move is to not be complacent,” Martin said. “I have to do what I’m supposed to do, and the rest will come.”
