Cap vs Hurr 2

Capital’s Kerion Martin (4) attempts to take down Hurricane’s Christian Hill in a game last season.

Capital rising senior Kerion Martin has committed to play at Marshall next season, he announced via Twitter on Friday.

Martin, a wide receiver/safety, tweeted: “Proud to say that I am 100% committed to Marshall University,” along with three photos in a Thundering Herd uniform.

Listed at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds on Capital’s roster a year ago, the lanky, athletic wideout hauled in 15 passes for 310 yards and five touchdowns last season, giving him the fifth-most catches on the team.

Defensively, he finished with 231/2 tackles with three coming for loss, picked off a pair of passes and had three more pass breakups. He earned an honorable-mention selection on the Class AAA All-State team a year ago.

Martin’s brother Kerry, the starting quarterback at Capital a year ago, is set to begin his freshman season at WVU.
