RB Dale Martin scheduling visits

Scout.com four-star running back Dale Martin capped off his senior season at Bolingbrook (Ill) High School earning All-Area and All-State honors. With his season over, Martin has started the process of scheduling official visits with his favorites.

With his season coming to an end in the state quarterfinals a couple weeks ago, Bolingbrook, Illinois running back Dale Martin has started the process of scheduling his official visits. The Scout.com four-star prospect has narrowed his list of schools down to six - California, Iowa, Louisville, Nebraska, Tennessee and Wisconsin - and has already scheduled one of his official trips.

"I'm going to Iowa on December 8 and that's the only that I have set up right now," said Martin. "I'm also talking to Tennessee, Louisville and Wisconsin and trying to set up visits with them."

"If I take another visit after those I'm looking at Nebraska or Cal," he continued. "Those are the two that I have to pick which one I want to go with my last visit."

Martin, who is ranked as the nation's No.22 running back by Scout.com, will be making a return trip to the majority of the schools on his short list.

"I've been to all of them but Nebraska," he said. "I've been to Louisville, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Iowa. I went to junior days and I've been to games at Wisconsin and Iowa."

Martin has continually stated that there is a chance that he could commit to a school during one of his visits and that possibility has all of his favorites lining up to set dates with the 5'10, 195-pound back.

"Coach Erb from Iowa and Coach Adkins from Tennessee came to my basketball game," said Martin. "After the game Coach Erb came over to my house. Wisconsin came by school today and I talked to Louisville a couple days ago."

While Tennessee seemed to have a slight edge for his future services just a few weeks ago, Martin now says that everything is even as he begins his visits.

"Right now things are pretty much even, so the things that I see on my visits will probably be the factor in my decision," he said. "The recruiting has been going on for awhile and I'm gradually trying to figure out which school. I really have no pressures to commit, so I'll just visit the schools to find out who I do want to commit to."

He hopes to have the majority of his official visits scheduled by the end of the week.

"I'm trying to do them all right now," said Martin. "Wisconsin might be the next one. I talked to them today at school and they want me to come up on December 15 and I'm going to call Louisville (Thursday) to try and set one up with them. I'm trying to get things going and hopefully I'll have all these set up soon."

As a senior Martin rushed for over 1,600 yards and 21 touchdowns, earning All-Area and All-State honors.
