D.J. Martin said his recruitment has slowed down during his senior season but the three main programs still talking to him have continued to stay in touch.
The Bakersfield (Calif.) Stockdale running back said Oregon State is the frontrunner with Arizona State and San Diego State staying in the mix.
The Beavers have the edge in his recruitment but Martin said he hasn't planned any official visits yet which means those will probably wait until after the season.
"Oregon State would be my favorite right now," Martin said. "Growing up I just liked watching them play and I liked the Rodgers brothers, too. That is just one of my schools."
The 5-foot-10, 195-pound three-star prospect said he plans to remain patient until after the bowl games because coaches are probably focused more on finishing well than recruiting at this point.
Martin hopes that's the case so more schools get involved in his recruitment and that he continues to hear from the ones that keep talking to him.
"I'm just waiting for them to get done with their season and then we'll go from there," Martin said.
"I can understand because it's during the season and we're getting to the bowl season so we're in the nitty-gritty. At the beginning of the season they were talking to me a lot but it's getting down to the time when they have to get serious so I'm just waiting for them to make their move."
Rivals.com rates Martin as the No. 37 running back in the 2013 class and No. 49 in the California state rankings.
