Tampa Catholic sophomore offensive lineman Corey Martinez, who is already a two-year starter for the Crusaders, received his first scholarship offer this weekend with a pitch from the local Division-I school, the University of South Florida.
Crusaders coach Bob Henriquez says offers to sophomores are relatively unofficial due to the fact the player’s senior year is so distant. But the offer from USF is significant for the 6-foot-4, 305-pound Martinez is significant in that it’s his first.
Martinez has received interest from several other major programs, including Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Mississippi State and Stanford.
