Martin Keeping Options Open

Ft. Worth Dunbar 2015 running back Taylor Martin is keeping his options open.

Ft. Worth (TX) Dunbar running back Taylor Martin was regarded as one of the top runners in North Texas for the 2013 season as he eclipsed nearly 1,600 yards in just 11 games.

The 5-foot-10, 190-pounder has generated interest from several schools including Missouri, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Illinois and TCU among others.

A few months ago, Martin had named an early leader for his services; TCU. While Martin still has a high interest in the Frogs, communication between he and the staff has slowed recently.

"I haven't really heard from TCU in a while," he said. "But, I'm keeping my options open."

The interest level could definitely change after Martin's achievements on the track. The junior won his district in the 100-meters with a 10.72 and also helped Dunbar's 4x100 and 4x200 relay team's advance to regionals.

It's that speed on the track that has caught additional program's eyes. One program in particular has Martin intrigued.

"USC is supposed to be coming by," Martin said. "They've said that they like my speed and they'll be coming to talk to me more."

Martin is putting his focus on track instead of recruiting at the moment. He will run this week at the Class 4A Region 1 meet held at Abilene Christian.
