USC has yet to offer DB Pat Martin (6-0 192) of JL Mann but the Gamecocks are interested and he talked recently with recruiter Shawn Elliott. "He talked to me about the Spur position," Martin said. Elliott has been by his school.
Martin said Clemson also is interested but his being patient because the Tigers say they're not taking many defensive backs this time.
Martin is holding offers from Duke, Maryland, Minnesota, Arkansas, UCLA, Louisville, Cincinnati, Tennessee, LSU, Mississippi State and Oklahoma.
Martin is not claiming a favorite but said the schools standing out the most with him right now are LSU, Tennessee, Louisville, Cincinnati and Arkansas.
His only visits this spring were to USC and Clemson, and he will visit Alabama May 22nd.
Martin said he's been nominated for the Army All American Game.
