With the summer camp circuit in full swing, it never fails that prospects will seemingly come out of nowhere after strong showings. One such case in the class of 2012 is Leander (Texas) cornerback Martel Summers.
The 6-foot-1, 186-pound defender has already made it to a pair of in-state camps and impressed at both ones. In fact, he could soon earn his first scholarship offer.
"There are a couple of schools that are showing me a lot of interest," Summers said. "They could be on the edge of offering. I just went to a (Texas) A&M camp and the coaches thought I performed well. Coach (Nick) Toth told me to call him sometime next week and they would know by then.
"I also went to a camp at UT. They said they should know sometime in September if they're going to go ahead and give me one. I'm just going to some camps this summer to just try and get the feel for the schools and the coaches and everything."
Summers has two more in-state stops planned in the near future as well.
"I've been to A&M and UT so far," he said. "Next I plan on going to UTEP which I believe is this weekend. I'm also going to Baylor. I think that's on (June) 22."
Though the recruiting process is just beginning for Summers, he does admit that a pair of schools have his attention at the moment.
"Definitely A&M," he said. "I've always been a fan of A&M. If UT were to offer, then I don't know. It would probably be a toss-up between those two schools right there."
In addition to football Summers also runs track for Leander. He runs all three relay events and the 4x100 meter team advanced to regionals. On the football field as a junior he earned unanimous first-team all-district honors after tallying 78 tackles, three interceptions, one fumble recovery and a blocked field goal.
