ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Wide receiver Ray Martin ended his senior year with a 43-yard touchdown reception for the East Team in the 13th Annual Central Florida All-Star Game. The Sanford (Fla.) Seminole product enjoyed the game and the entire week of practices leading up to it.
"It was magnificient," Martin said. "Practice was fun. There were a lot of different guys from a lot of different areas. We all bonded and had a good time."
The 5-foot-10, 195-pound wide receiver shared what schools are currently in the picture for his services.
"I am still talking to Iowa, Mississippi State, and FIU every now and then. Also Temple," Martin said. "I have narrowed it down."
The three-star wide receiver has yet to schedule his first official visit, but has some destinations in mind.
"I know I am going to Iowa for sure," Martin said. "I think I will also visit Mississippi State. I may also visit Temple."
At this stage, he says a Big Ten program is standing out.
"I would say Iowa stands out pretty good," Martin said. "Me and Coach K (Rick Kaczenski), we have a good relationship."
Martin said he is not working with a specific timeline to make a decision. When he does get around to doing so, it is going to come down to the place where he found a certain comfort level.
"I just want to find a place that feels like home," Martin said. "I am going to be away from home for the next three or four years and I want it to feel like home."
