Michigan State Spartans scheduled visit with Bradley Martino

Three-star athlete Bradley Martino originally committed to the University of Toledo in February, but the connection didn’t last long. On May 29, Martino officially decommitted from the Rockets and is back on the market for his 2025 recruitment.

Michigan State and Martino recently took an official visit on June 14. Martino will visit Big Ten rival Minnesota the week before on June 8, and Mississippi State a week later on June 21.

Martino is the No. 30 athlete in the class of 2025, according to 247Sports Composite. He is the number 71 player in the football-rich state of Florida. Nationally he just came out of the Top 500, in 530th place.

Last season at Golden Gate, Martino was a two-way player: both a wide receiver and a defensive back. He won the Braxson Trophy, presented by the Naples Daily News. Martino helped his high school reach the regional semifinals of the Florida 3S playoffs.

Martino had 21 receptions for 455 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also had a rushing touchdown. Defensively, Martino recorded 35 tackles, three interceptions, three pass breakups and a forced fumble.

Martino led his team to a historic season last year, according to the Naples Daily News.

“I was shocked,” Martino told the outlet. But at the same time, I knew that me and my teammates made a lot of sacrifices in the offseason. We put that work in, and it showed at the end of the season. The amount of work we put in came back to me and it showed me that the more work you put in, the more positive results you’re going to get… I only realized this year the impact of what a two-way player could focus on on defense and attack, it showed me that I really contributed to the game.”

Michigan State hasn’t made an offer to Martino yet, but it’s possible they make the prospect an offer when he visits East Lansing. It will also be interesting to see where the Spartans choose to place Martino; he’s a two-way athlete, and the defensive backs and wide receivers could use a boost from the recruiting trail.
