2012 kicker Ross Martin is known for his ability to handle pressure, being consistent and not letting anything affect his kicks; and schools have taken note of that. Check out how he breaks down the schools that have already offered him:
Pittsburgh: "They were the first to offer me. I really love the coaching staff there. I visited with my mom and dad. Obviously, with the staff coming from Tulsa, they would be a pretty explosive team to watch, especially for me being a kicker. I'm going to their spring game this Saturday."
Iowa State: "I haven't met with them in person yet. Coach Rhoads offered me over the phone. Hopefully I can make it to a spring practice. I've been talking to Coach Caley. They seem like an up-and-coming team."
Harvard: "I've been talking with Coach Lamb a lot. They sent me a Letter of Support for admission. They've also told me that I'd be their number one kicker. I'm very interested in going to a school with great academics as well as football; so, they'd be a great fit. I'm going to visit them in a couple of weeks."
Kent State: "Coach Hazel is a really cool guy. I knew him from back when he was at Ohio State. I'm going back this week to catch a spring practice."
But those are not the only schools on the kicker's radar.
"I've been talking to Ohio State, Northwestern, Duke, California-Berkley, Stanford, Florida and Purdue, as well as schools from all of the BCS conferences," said Martin. "I'm just exploring my options. A lot of them said they want to see me in person at their summer camps and talk with me."
He already plans on attending camps at Ohio State, Northwestern, Cal-Berkley, Florida and Notre Dame. He also has taken in some spring practices.
"Last Thursday I was at Ohio State for their spring practice. There I met with Coach Tressel. I was also at Florida for a spring practice."
The junior would ideally like to commit before his senior season begins, but is not holding it to a date.
"I'll see how the summer camps go."
What will help him determine where that place will be?
"Just wherever I feel the most comfortable, where I can see myself. I'd like to have early playing time and a good relationship with the Coach. I also want to get a good education and earn my degree."
