Remember Tee Martin? The star QB led the Tennessee Volunteers to a national championship in 1998 on the heels of a 19-touchdown season.

Martin ended up with a cup of coffee in the NFL and is now the wide receivers coach for the Baltimore Ravens.

Martin’s son, Kaden Martin, is a fantastic athlete as well. He’s the starting quarterback for Knoxville Catholic High School, but he may not play football in college.

In March 2021, Martin committed to the Miami Hurricanes to play baseball as an outfielder.

Being a dual-threat athlete was important to Martin, and there is a solid chance he finds himself on the sidelines of a Miami football game at some point in his college career.

Kaden Martin received scholarship offers from some incredible programs, including Alabama, Arizona State, Arkansas, Coastal Carolina, Duke, Eastern Kentucky, Florida Atlantic, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Troy, USC, and West Virginia.

Some of these schools are more known for their football, but others, like Arkansas, have put together competitive baseball rosters.

The Vols are having a great year on the diamond, but Martin is set to take on a path that is different from his father’s. His brother, Amari Rodgers, played wide receiver for Clemson, but the Tigers didn’t make Martin an offer.

Martin is a member of the 2022 recruiting class, and has another year of high school play to hone his crafts and get even better.

Head coach Manny Diaz believes Martin can compete for the starting quarterback job, so the opportunity for playing time is there for the taking if an agreement can be reached with the Miami baseball team.

Their program is a storied one, and Martin may soon have the best of both worlds.

Kaden Martin Highlights

Kaden Martin is rated as a four-star quarterback by the 247Sports Composite, and with this highlight reel, it’s easy to see why.

On the gridiron, he generated nearly 1,400 yards of offense with his arm and another 236 with his legs, combining for 18 touchdowns.

On the baseball field, Martin is arguably even more impressive.

He earned a grade of 10 from Perfect Game — an amateur evaluation site — and he slugged three home runs and totaled 29 RBI during his sophomore season.
