“It’s premature right now. I’m going to have a discussion with my parents about it,” he said. “I’m not really one to make rash decisions, but I really have a short window. I have six weeks before I sign, and I need to do my best to make the best decision moving forward.
“If everything works out the way I’m planning, I’ll end up at Tennessee at the end of the day.”
“I want to be a part of the Tennessee family,” Martinez said. “It’s just a matter of me doing my due diligence and making sure that the new coach is a good fit for me and I’m a good fit for him.
“We will just have to see how things play out because there is really a lot to unfold here over the next few weeks with many programs. …
“I’m committed to Tennessee and I want to play there and play for those fans, but I’m going to have to see how this whole thing progresses. I’m going to wait and see who the new coach is and then establish a relationship, and I feel that is a fair thing to do.”
