Slow and steady

Martez Ivey has a long list of programs after him, but he's barely thinking about the recruiting process yet. The five-star offensive lineman of Apopka (Fla.) does have one unofficial visit coming up, and it could be the only one he takes this fall. Get the latest on the 2015 athlete here.

Apopka (Fla.) dominated Apopka (Fla.) Wekiva 80-26 Friday night. The Blue Darters are missing standout quarterback and Nebraska commit Zack Darlington, who is out indefinitely after multiple concussions. Still, they managed to put up 80 points on Wekiva and Martez Ivey was excited about the win.

"I feel great, knowing we have two backs out and our starting quarterback and we still produced points on the board and efficient drives. I'm really happy about the offense," he said.

"Mainly, it's run-blocking now because passing went out the door when Zack got hurt, so (I've been) improving my first two steps in the ground and my footwork."

The 6-foot-5, 280-pound lineman is keeping recruiting on the back-burner. He knows schools are interested, but he doesn't know all of his offers off the top of his head. Ivey didn't even have a cell phone until recently.

Ivey has on unofficial visit coming up – to Florida when the Gators welcome Tennessee. It could be the only visit he takes this fall. He and his teammate, Chandler Cox, will visit the Swamp. Ivey's excited to see it on gameday.

"I haven't seen it, I hear the atmosphere is crazy over there. I'm hoping for a win out of them too," Ivey said.

Ivey doesn't talk to coaches often, but he has had a chance to speak with some at Florida this week.

"I talk to tight ends coach Derek Lewis. He came down here, but we didn't get to talk to him because he was on his way to New Orleans, but I talked to (offensive line) coach (Tim) Davis the other night," he said.

"He's unique. That's alright with me. I haven't really talked to him, but he's nice, a nice person."

Ohio State, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, and Clemson are among others after the five-star athlete. Ivey has previously mentioned liking the Buckeyes and the Gamecocks in addition to the Gators, but he's still taking it slow.

"I don't have any leaders or anything like that. If I did, I wouldn't say," he said.

"I still have a year at Apopka, so I'm focused on Apopka."
