There is so much talk that Frank Martin is just waiting for an offer from USC and when it comes he will commit.
The 2016 offensive tackle from Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei definitely likes the Trojans a lot but he said that kind of thinking is completely wrong and he remains open to all possibilities.
"Everyone thinks it's pre-determined with USC," Martin said. "It's a process. I'm open to everybody right now. I have been really close with UCLA, too. Everyone thinks once USC offers me, I'm going to commit but that's not the case.
"I just happen to have gone to USC a couple times because it's very local. Everyone is saying, 'Frank, you already know you're going to USC,' but that's not true. Everyone thinks I'm already locked down because I live over here but I have no problem going out-of-state or something like that."
Martin, a 6-foot-5, 296-pound prospect, had high praise for UCLA especially position coach Adrian Klemm. The Mater Dei recruit could be getting an offer from Arkansas soon and he's planning trips to Arizona and Arizona State at the end of July.
"I think I'm going to get offered by Arkansas next week," Martin said. "It's official that my dad and I are going to take visits to Arizona and Arizona State on July 30-31.
"I just want to take a look at the campus and stuff like that, get to know the coaches better."
So far, Martin has been offered by Arizona State, Cal, Oregon State, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
The 2016 prospect said he gets the feeling USC and UCLA are really interested in him but those programs will probably wait into his junior season before they seriously consider an offer. Martin is fine with it since he's in no rush at all to make a decision.
"I'm kind of getting that feeling," Martin said. "I've gotten that feeling definitely with USC."
