Texas Tech Offers DE Brock Martin

Texas Tech offered Oolagah (Okla.) defensive end Brock Martin on Monday. caught up with Martin shortly after the announcement for the skinny on how the offer went down.

Oolagah (Okla.) defensive end Brock Martin announced via Twitter he received an offer from Texas Tech on Monday.

The 6-foot-2, 218-pound defensive end told shortly after announcing the offer that Red Raider linebackers coach Zac Spavital visited him Monday up at his high school as the spring evaluation period began on Apr. 15 and the coaches are out on the road visiting recruits.

"I was excited, (but) gotta keep my head on straight," Martin said.

While Spavital is who visited, it was Texas Tech defensive line coach Kevin Patrick (pictured up top) who confirmed the offer for Martin when the defensive end and two-time Oklahoma state wrestling champ called Monday afternoon. Martin said both coaches told him they "love my toughness and grittiness. And my hands at the point of contact."

Martin, who tallied 96 tackles and 17 sacks last season despite missing several games due to a knee injury, visited Tech's campus earlier this month and told he had the Red Raiders "at the top" of his list after the visit. 

Martin said Monday he has no timetable for deciding on a school and confirmed he's hearing from other programs. In fact, TCU defensive end coach Dan Sharp also visited Monday and Wyoming was the first to offer back in February.
