Chicago Harper four star ranked senior offensive tackle Roland Martin stayed in chilly and snowy Chicago this weekend, and Martin talks about his messed up weekend as well as his future visits, leaders and plans.
"I originally postponed my official visit to Oklahoma" said Roland Martin. "That date just wasn't working for my family, then we talked later in the week about getting in the car and driving to Champaign and making an official visit instead to Illinois, but we had car troubles so I decided to stay at home instead."
So will the Sooners and the Illini get another chance to host Roland Martin? "It could definitely happen, I just need to figure things out visit-wise. I have nothing scheduled for this upcoming weekend, then after that week is Christmas and the quiet period, plus I'll be in San Antonio for the All American Bowl, so I won't be able to make anymore visits until January 9th."
So who is still on Roland Martin's Top schools list? "Michigan State, Iowa, Oklahoma, Tennessee, North Carolina State and Illinois are all right there. I'm still planning on taking all five official visits before I make any decisions. Over the next week or so I'll get a few more visits set in January."
Could Roland Martin be the rare Illinois prospect to wait until Signing Day to announce his college decision? "That could happen" said Martin. "I haven't really thought about that, but the more I think about it the more that could be a possibility."
