Due to the change in coaches at Iowa State, the 6-foot-3, 250-pound defensive end has decided to open things up with his recruitment. "Right now my recruitment is open because the new staff coming in will be like a bunch of strangers to me," he said. "I still might end up at Iowa State but I really need to talk with the new coaches. I prefer to take another visit in January to Iowa State or they can come out to see me but either way I want to talk to them in person."
One thing that Taylor still likes a lot about Iowa State is the need for defensive ends on their roster. "It is definitely a factor because wherever I go I want to play right away because I only have two years left," said Martin. "I have already talked with Kansas State, North Texas, Marshall, and South Dakota but I'm not going to make any decisions until I talk with the Coach Rhoads."
