Martin makes return visit to LSU

Port Arthur (TX) Memorial 2016 RB Kameron Martin is no stranger to the LSU campus. Read on to get his reaction to last weekend's trip to Baton Rouge and more...

Kameron Martin, who hails from the same southeast Texas area as LSU WRs coach Adam Henry, visited Henry and the Tigers last Saturday.

"Man, it was great to be in Death Valley again," Martin said. "I got over there early Saturday morning. I went with my coach and some teammates.

"Coach Miles said to keep working hard and keep doing what I'm doing. I talked to the running backs coach, Frank Wilson. My coach had told him about me. Coach Wilson said I better do something when he comes to watch our spring game, because he's not coming down for nothing. He said, 'I might offer.'"

Coach Henry told Martin that his chances of landing an early offer would increase with a good camp performance.

"He said he'd love to see me there," Martin said of Henry. "He really wants me to come camp with them."

Martin also made an appearance at Baylor earlier this month.

"That was two weeks ago," he said. "It was good talking with Coach (Carlton) Buckels and the head coach, Art Briles. When the head coach met with me, he said, 'You don't have to tell me your name; I've been doing research on you.'"

According to Martin, the Baylor staff is talking about "pulling the trigger before spring."

During the summer Martin is considering Texas Tech, Baylor, Texas A&M and Texas for camps. LSU will put him through the paces at its camp.

"I'll be in Baton Rouge on June 8th, too," the frosh said. "That's the date for the Governor's Meet, a top track meet in the nation. The Governor's Meet is where I met Dylan Moses last year.

"I ran the 100 and 200 last year and will do those two again. I got eighth in the 100 and sixth in the 200, and plan on winning this time."

Either Texas Tech or Baylor could be first to offer Martin, a rare ninth-grade starting RB at a premier Texas 3A program.

"Coach Kevin Curtis from Texas Tech said to just keep doing what I'm doing," Martin added. "He said I'm a top 2016 prospect for them.

"I'm going to keep working hard and grinding."
