Big 12 showing Martin most love

He will be hitting plenty of games this fall. The latest on the rising 2016 running back out of Port Arthur (TX) Memorial.

It is Kameron Martin's 5-foot-10, 170-pound size with 4.39 40-yard dash speed at a fresh age 15 that have landed him offers from Baylor, Texas Tech and Akron.

That, and 319 yards and four touchdowns on 46 carries as a freshman last season.

These numbers have also garnered him strong interest from Texas A&M, LSU, Texas, TCU.

Martin camped with Baylor, Texas Tech, Texas A&M and TCU this summer, receiving a flourish of positive feedback from each.

"Every camp I went to they showed me lots of love and the coaches were very happy to see me," said Martin. "Especially at Texas Tech. The coaches treated me like family."

He is not the first recruit to note this regarding the Red Raiders and their new coaching staff under Kliff Kingsbury.

"They really do," Martin said. "I talk most with (running backs) Coach [Kevin] Curtis. He's a great coach. He just tells me every week to work at my position. Coach Kingsbury told me the offense fits me because they run a lot of zone read option. Also, my speed. They said they've never seen a kid my age run that fast."

Martin plans on hitting Texas Tech's game with Baylor at AT&T Stadium (formerly Cowboys Stadium) in Arlington, Texas, Nov. 16.

"That'll be a good game. Baylor has some good running backs this year," Martin commented. "I'm excited to watch Lache Seastrunk. I hear he could be up for Heisman."

It will be Martin's second visit to AT&T Stadium this fall as he will be in attendance in two weeks for the TCU-LSU opener. He then plans on visiting College Station for Texas A&M's highly-awaited rematch with Alabama Sept. 14.

LSU is a school Martin said he is "very interested" in, but one that communication has been somewhat slower with.

"That's my dream school. I didn't get to make it out there for any camps this summer with 7v7, so I want to go to as many [LSU] games as possible this year. And hopefully they make it to some of my games," Martin said. "I'm ready to show the world what I can do. This is my year."
