Utah offers 2016 4-star RB

Port Arthur (TX) Memorial four-star sophomore RB Kameron Martin received his fourth offer this week from Utah, which has been especially active on the Gulf Coast recruiting trail recently. Get Martin's reaction to his first Pac-12 offer and find out what's likely to happen next with his recruitment...

Baylor, Akron, Texas Tech and Utah are the four offers on the table thus far for blue-chip running back Kameron Martin out of southeast Texas.

"Well, I just started building a relationship with Utah like every college team that's recruiting me," said Martin, whose primary contact on the staff is recruiting coordinator and safeties coach Morgan Scalley.

"My coach said (Scalley) came by our school and said good things about me so I got his phone number. When I told him I have legit interest in Utah, he said we're going to do this the right way with my recruitment."

Martin continued to describe his interaction with the Utes.

"I sent Coach Scalley my film," the sophomore said, "and I guess he loved my highlight tape. I called him on Thursday and he said Utah was offering me a full ride.

"It's great to have a Pac-12 offer. I'm going to try and visit next summer."

Although he's well aware of the Utes' on-the-field success over the past decade, Martin says he is eager to learn all details about the program.

"I'm working to get better as a player," he said of his general off-season philosophy. "I'm not trying to commit soon. I expect to wait and commit at an all-star game like the Under Armour bowl."

An SEC school could be on the cusp of extending offer number five.

"I have high interest in Florida," Martin informed. "Coach (Will) Muschamp is going to talk to me next week."

All signs point to Martin making the Gators the next entry on his offer sheet. He's optimistic that Florida will pull the trigger in the near future.

Martin's goal is to remain open - at least for now - to all schools that are interested in making a pitch to land his talents.

He'll once again put his blinding speed on display in the 100 meter dash (and other events) this spring for Memorial's track and field team.
