Martin signs with Gamecocks

Junior College cornerback Ronnie Martin (Spartanburg, S.C.) has signed a national letter of intent with the University of South Carolina.

Ronnie Martin (Spartanburg, S.C.) signed with South Carolina Wednesday.

It was the first day mid-year junior college transfers could sign.

The 5-10, 180-pounder signed with South Carolina in 2011 on National Signing Day, but failed to qualify.

He enrolled at Georgia Military College to get back on track and continue to play football.

He has spent the past two seasons at Georgia Military College.

Due to a hamstring injury, he saw limited playing time in 2012.

Martin was a three-star prospect in high school.

For the Gamecocks, he is expected to see time at cornerback and on special teams as a returner.

He will start classes in Columbia in January.

Martin will have three years of eligibility remaining with the Gamecocks.
