The next phase of Martin's recruiting journey is kicking into full gear as he plans to go on some key visits as he tries to find the perfect college fit, beginning with a trip to SEC country and the Arkansas Razorbacks. 

  • March 16 - Arkansas
  • March 24 - TCU
  • April 1 - Mississippi State
  • April 13 Ole Miss
  • April 21 - Baylor

Scouting Report: Martin is noted for his route-running ability and his quickness in and out of his cuts. He is a well-rounded wide receiver who excels on the outside as a deep-threat option but has the elite acceleration and separation that will also make him dangerous in the slot. He would fit well in any offense but should be the type of player who is moved around the scheme to create mismatches.  

Martin was named the WR MVP at the Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 in Dallas.
