Juco Cornerback To Visit For OSU-Texas

LINDSBORG, Kan. -- The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Junior College Norsemen came away with a commanding 49-0 rare Sunday afternoon college football victory as they defeated NAIA program Bethany College. Our interest in being there was two-fold with son Zach Allen as NEO's defensive coordinator and one of the top junior college cornerback prospects in Justin Martin.

"It was good even though I really didn't play in the second half," Justin Martin said. "I had a big kickoff return (52 yards) to start the game and I had a pass break-up that should have been a pick six, so I had a good game and it was good to win like that. That was wonderful. It should have been the whole season but we have one more game next week with Fort Scott."

Martin, a native of Atlanta, Ga., and a graduate of Nashville Overton High School in Tennessee has shored up some of his recruiting plans.

"I'm still going to the Oklahoma State-Texas game on Nov. 15," the 6-2, 190-pound cornerback said. "I'm going up there with Coach Mo Gray (a former Oklahoma State player that coaches him at NEO).

"Oklahoma offered me this week and so I am going to the Bedlam game now on Dec. 6. I was going to go this Saturday but we have a game. I have three official visits with Georgia, Tennessee, and LSU. Those will be in December or in January, but I haven't set the exact dates. I'm keeping my last two visits open until I talk to family and decide where they will be."

Martin said he has family spread out all over the United States. His dad is in New York, his mom in Tennessee, and more family in Georgia. He is not worried about location.

"I know I can play in any program with my skill set and I don't know of anybody that will outwork me," he said with confidence. "I can adjust to any coach and all the facilities at that level are nice. I think my decision will kind of be by feel, like where I feel the most comfortable."

He also has offers from the like of Texas, Mississippi, Auburn and Nebraska, among others.
