    Cali High's #25 player in California heading into his senior year. Here's some of what they said about him:

    Oops. Forgot the Colorado offer in his profile. :lol:

    It's looking like Martin, a long-time USC commit, is shopping around. He's at Arizona this weekend.

    AZ's BuffScoop reports that he will visit CU next weekend. AZ should have an interview with Martin in the next few days.

    Apparently, Martin has gotten nervous that he'd be one of the casualties if USC doesn't win its appeal with the NCAA. He's looking for a more secure opportunity.

    I'm hoping for a huge U$C fallout if their recruits are denied schollies...

    Looks like he played a little bit of D-line at Crenshaw...would be a great get for either side of the ball.

    He's perfect for our new 1-5-5 defense!

    If Asaiata commits first we're out of luck on Martin

    Might not be a bad thing. Seems like these really big guys are a gamble and few of them ever see the field in college.

    I believe I read that Nebraska is recruiting for DL. So I think there may not be any dependency on Asiata's decision.

    Even if they are both OL, why not take both. I think they're much more in line with where JE wants to go than Mustoe. He wants the nasty run blockers, IMO.

    I heard Embree say that he's looking for the Nate Solder body type out of his tackles. I think he's looking for road graders on the interior at guard (Asiata, Martin) and center has to be a similar build but also a very good athlete with great football smarts (Kelley).

    I think the Bryant kid (michigan commit) appears to carry his 300+ lbs a little bit better than this guy. Even so, this is a big fella and obviously USC has a penchant for bringing in quality prospects, so if we can nab him, great for us.

    That's great news! He can play on the defensive side.

    Found a new Scout article: http://recruiting.scout.com/2/1042047.html

    "I am not committed to USC right now," said Martin. "I'm weighing my options with my family. It will come down to Signing Day."

    On Signing Day, Martin will choose from the Trojans, Arizona and Colorado.

    He's already visited USC and took a trip to Arizona this weekend, with a visit to Colorado lined up for next weekend.
