Port Arthur (Texas) Memorial running back Kameron Martin (5-10, 170) caught the attention of college recruiters as a freshman for the Titans, and already holds offers from Akron, Baylor, and Texas Tech.
As a sophomore in 2013, Martin wanted to turn even more heads with his play, and he feels like he is on the right track on the field and with the recruiting process.
"Things have been going well," Martin said. "I reached my goal and that was to get over 1,000 yards and I have 1,013 yards for the season. The recruitment has been going well. I've been talking to Texas A&M the most and I have been building a relationship back up with Texas and I still talk to the schools who have offered like Texas Tech and Baylor."
The standout running back possesses a diverse skillset and college coaches see him fitting in at several different roles.
"Well, Texas Tech told me they were going to use me like a Reggie Bush and they're going to have me at wide receiver and running back," Martin said. "Baylor is recruiting me as a running back and A&M told me the same thing as Texas Tech. They want to use me at everything."
In addition to Baylor, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, and Texas he has also been talking to Notre Dame, USC, and Oregon, and he wants to starting building a relationship with LSU after a coach recently followed him on Twitter.
The standout running back admits he grew up a fan of the Texas Longhorns, but as he has progressed through the recruiting process it is Texas A&M who has captured his attention. He has already taken three unofficial visits to College Station this fall, and is quickly familiarizing himself with the Texas A&M coaching staff.
"Every time I go out there it gets better and better," Martin said. "It's a great atmosphere just to go out there as a sophomore. I've been building a relationship with the coaches since I was in the ninth grade because I've always liked them since they brought their program back up. I've just been building a relationship with them guys and I'm very cool with some of the players like Ricky Seals-Jones we text like every weekend and he tells me stuff about A&M and what it takes to be an Aggie."
Before he gets too far ahead of himself though, Martin is focused on what he needs to do as a Titan in 2013.
"I'm just trying to focus on winning these playoff games that are coming up and taking it one game at a time," Martin said.
This week that means preparing for a Saturday playoff match-up with Fort Bend Elkins.
