Marcus Martin has been committed to USC since the middle of June but the Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw offensive guard visited Arizona last weekend, will be at Colorado this weekend and said he'll make his final decision on National Signing Day.
The 6-foot-3, 357-pound prospect said he remains verbally committed to the Trojans but will weigh his other options - namely the Wildcats and Buffaloes - and make his final determination next Wednesday.
"I'm going to sit down and discuss all the details with my family and see what they think of it and just see if everything is in the right position," Martin said.

"All three schools I'm looking at - USC, Arizona and Colorado - I'll sit down with my dad and we'll have a discussion and I'll sign that Wednesday."
Martin's trip to Arizona went well and he hit it off with coach Mike Stoops and offensive line coach Robert Anae. The Wildcats have long been recruiting Martin, a three-star recruit rated No. 28 at offensive guard nationally by Rivals.com.
"The coaches were real cool," Martin said. "I like coach Stoops and coach Anae. They're really good guys. The facilities were real nice, too.
"I never saw a whole building dedicated completely to athletics so that was nice. On the academic side, the assistance they have, like if I was having any trouble in class, I know they'd be there if I decided to go to U of A."
Colorado has been making a late push for Martin and the Crenshaw standout plans to visit this weekend.
Like many prospects who have visited with the Buffaloes in recent weeks, Martin is thoroughly impressed with the new staff in Boulder and said he's excited to visit campus and talk with all the coaches.
USC still has to be considered the fronrunner but Arizona and Colorado are not giving up in the final week before signing day.
"They have stepped it up," Martin said of Colorado.
"All those coaches are cool because they did participate at Colorado when they were really successful and also everybody has a little knowledge about football because they've been in the pros or coached in the pros."
