Antelope Valley (Calif.) Community College defensive end Taylor Martin committed to Iowa State in September. Now, with coach Gene Chizik leaving Ames, Iowa for Auburn the three-star rated prospect has decided to take a little look around.
"I am going to open my recruiting back up," the 6-foot-3, 265-pound Martin said. "I just don't know what I'm going to do right now. I want to see what else is out there.
"North Texas called me today. They look like a nice school. They just don't win a lot there, though."
Martin, a spring graduate, has some time to make his decision.
"I will take what time I need and take some visits. I really haven't heard from anyone else yet."
Martin had attracted interest from Kansas, Kansas State, Oregon State and Alabama State prior to making a commitment to the Cyclones.
"It has been a long time since I heard from any of them. They all kind of dropped off me when I made the commitment."
