Pack In The Mix For Martin Twins

Cody and Caleb Martin are having an excellent spring on the AAU circuit, and the twins who plan to go to college at the same place have added a lot of attention.

Team Loaded is one of the best squads at the 16-and under level, and a big reason for that is Cody Martin and Caleb Martin. The twins from Mocksville (NC) Davie County are putting on a show this spring, and have helped lead Team Loaded to tournament titles.

At 6-foot-6 and 180 pounds, Cody and Caleb Martin both have the versatility and skill to play multiple positions on the court. Given their solid athleticism and advanced feel for the game, they have helped Team Loaded to numerous wins over the past two years.

"It is great to be out here against great competition with a great team," said Cody Martin. "We know coming into tournaments that we have a target on us and everybody wants to beat us."

Recruiting wise there is a long list of schools showing a significant amount of early interest is the twins.

"We have offers from NC State, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest," Caleb Martin said. "We have interest from Kansas, North Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Tennessee, Clemson, Georgetown, South Carolina, Xavier, and a couple others."

Caleb then made it clear that any school recruiting them better have two open scholarships.

"We definitely want to go to the same school and we tell every coach that," he said.

At this point the Martin twins have made it to North Carolina State for an unofficial visit and to Wake Forest to check out a game. Those are the only two visits they have taken, and both schools did a good job of showing them around.

"Wake, even though there was some stuff going on, they are in it together and they don't worry about the outside, they just worry about themselves and getting it back on track," said Cody of the Demon Deacons. "They are so positive about everything."

Caleb then added how impressed they were with everything at NC State.

"NC State, everyone makes you feel welcome," he stated about the Wolfpack. "When you go there you feel welcome, everybody is nice to you, and the fan base is great down there as well."

For now the twins are in no hurry to make a decision, and they are trying to figure everything out about a school before any kind of commitment is made.

"The coaches and how energized they are, that is important," said Caleb. "Basically we are looking for the all around school and what school knows what they are doing."
