DT Martin Aiken Profile
Bamberg-Ehrhardt junior defensive end Martin Aiken was happy to find out Clemson offered.
"Ever since I was a freshman, I've been going to their camp and working out. It means a lot to me, because it kind of shows me that my hard work has paid off," he told CUTigers recently.
Several of his offers have come in during the last few weeks. Along with Clemson, Georgia Tech, Illinois, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wake Forest, East Carolina, North Carolina, N.C. State and Virginia Tech have all offered.
"I'm kind of open to everybody, right now, so I don't have any favorites," Aiken said.
He recently attended junior day at Georgia Tech. He's planning to go to junior days at Clemson and South Carolina.
Aiken recently called Clemson defensive ends coach Marion Hobby.
"I called him Wednesday," Aiken said. "He was telling me, it being signing day, that he hoped a year from [Wednesday] that it would be me signing with Clemson, like the other top players…he said how much it would mean to him for me to end up at Clemson, for him to have a chance to coach me. He said he's heard so much about me and seen so much of my film."
Clemson is recruiting him to play defensive end. Aiken said that's the position most schools are currently evaluating him to play, but a move inside to tackle is possible after a few years at the college level.
As a junior, Aiken had 106 tackles and 13 sacks.
