Andre Martin walked into the NDSU library this morning with his computer briefcase and the look of a graduate student. More on the Bison senior cornerback later this week — he’s the subject of our Forum Game Day story.
But know this: there’s a lot going on with his plate this week. His wife, Nadia Martin, will be induced Wednesday morning for the birth of their first child. A level-headed, soft-spoken man, Andre Martin said things so far are going as well as could be expected this week. He plans on playing at Northern Iowa on Saturday, which oh by the way is the school he transferred from this year to attend graduate school at NDSU. Martin is taking advantage of an NCAA rule that allows students with their undergraduate degree to transfer to another school for graduate work and be eligible immediately.
Martin has been an immediate hit with his new team. He said Fargo has been a great place for him and his family, which will grow by one on Wednesday. Here’s WDAY’s story on Andre and his crazy week.
