Top 50 Players: #5 Ruben Martinez

Ruben Martinez stud from Los Alamos comes in at #5 in our preseason rankings. Martinez had a monster junior year and also had a very busy summer going to different camps. One of those camps he came away with an early offer.

Ruben Martinez RB from Los Alamos had an amazing junior campaign, a season that saw him rush for more than 1200 yards and 24 total touchdowns.  It can be argued that Martinez deserves to higher on this list.  To be honest the next four guys we can put them in just about any order and probably be right on the money.

Ruben was able to attend several camps this summer including a camp at New Mexico State.  At that camp Martinez was lucky enough to be the only RB that attended, needless to say that gave a very good chance to show his skills to the RB coach.  He took that opportunity and ran with it, he ran so well that he came away with an offer from the Aggies.  Martinez is thinking about making his college choice known soon so check back with for all updates.

I like Ruben a lot.  When I watched his tape, the first thing that jumped out to me was his size and speed.  He's not a burner but for his size he does run really well.  I watched Ruben at the Arizona State camp this summer and I was really surprised how well he caught the ball.  Los Alamos doesn't through the ball that much so that skill was one I hadn't seen. 

Martinez is one of the top players in New Mexico hands down and is ready for big senior season.
