Two junior prospects, like wide receiver/safety prospect Markelle Martin, are putting Wichita Falls (Texas) Rider High School back on the recruiting map.
Martin, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound prospect, is a player that on defense his coach says "makes our team so much better" because of he's so "rangy and can cover a lot of ground back there." But with his size, offense is not out of the question at the next level and Martin kind of prefers the ball in his hands.
"I'll really play wherever they want me to play, wherever they need me," Martin said. "Whatever they want me to do I'll do it. In college, I don't know because I like both. I kind of want play receiver though because you get to block for people and you don't always have to score out there. You get to be well-rounded."

In one game, Martin had three interceptions a few weeks ago. He's also had a forced fumble and is averaging more than 25 yards per catch at receiver.
"We have a short passing game, so it's not a ton of deep balls," Martin said.
Recruiting has certainly started off well for Maritn. Several schools such as Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M have sent mail to his home.
"OSU, Tech, and Kansas send a lot," Martin said. "I don't really have a favorite though. I just want to go to school."
Martin says that he grew up rooting for Miami when he was younger, but is wide open when it comes to colleges today.
