"I came back home and talked to my parents and we couldn't think of a better place to be than Notre Dame," Martini told 247Sports. "With the combination of academics and athletics, I figured I should commit now and my heart is set on it."
"I think it was the traditions there at Notre Dame are rich and there is so much history," he said. "I definitely wanted to be part of that. I grew up watching Notre Dame football and never thought I'd have the opportunity to play there. I knew when they offered me that's what I wanted to do."
Martini becomes the first 2014 commit for the Irish and third overall for the program in the past eight days.
