Maryland football picked up a commitment Sunday from three-star class of 2024 quarterback Khristian Martin.
Martin attends Highland Springs High School (Highland Springs, Va.), where he captured the VHSL Class 5 State Championship in 2022 after leading his team to an undefeated 15-0 record. He threw for 2,388 yards and 30 touchdowns with just one interception, and added 773 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns en route to earning co-All-Metro Player of the Year honors from the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
According to the 247Sports Composite, Martin is the 35th-best prospect from Virginia in his class and the No. 77 quarterback nationally. Listed at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, Martin is the second player from Virginia to commit to Maryland this cycle, joining three-star edge rusher Anthony Reddick. Martin also fielded offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech and Texas A&M among others.
Martin became the 17th overall commitment in Maryland’s 2024 recruiting class, now ranked No. 41 in the nation by 247Sports’ class composite ratings. He is the first quarterback in his class to pledge to play for the Terps.
