"My sister had a club volleyball tournament in Atlanta so we were coming through," Martin says. "She was meeting with the volleyball coaches at Auburn so I couldn't pass up an opportunity to stop by. I got to check out the facilities and meet the coaches a little bit. It was nice. It's a beautiful campus and the stadium was awesome. The facilities are great. The coaches are good guys too."
Recently with a top five of Alabama, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, LSU and Baylor, Martin has added an offer from Auburn since that time and says the SEC is definitely a place that is enticing for a kid growing up in Texas because of the success of the league on the field and in the NFL.
"I have offers from a lot of really great programs," Martin says. "This (Auburn) is a great program as well. It's a great school. One of my dad's friends Jeff Grimes used to coach there so I know a little bit about it. It's definitely a great school and it was awesome to stop by."
"He's a really good guy," Martin says. "He was really friendly. I was honored that he let me in his office after showing up on the spur of the moment. He's a great guy and a great coach. It was good to get to stop through there."
Martin is planning to make a decision before his senior season begins so he can focus and not have too many distractions in the 2013 season.
