Report: Former Baylor RB signee to pick between Auburn and TCU this week
Auburn’s 2016 recruiting class could be gaining a late addition as soon as Tuesday, as former Baylor signee Kameron Martin is reportedly planning on pledging his commitment to either the Tigers or TCU following a visit to Waco this week.
After finally being released from his letter of intent to Baylor following the Art Briles fiasco, Martin visited Auburn this weekend and came away impressed by the visit.
“It was amazing,” Martin said according to Wesley Sinor of AL.com. “They treated me like family… The guys really want me and they feel like I can fit real good in their offense. They feel like I can come in there and play running back. My thing is, I just want to go somewhere where I can compete at the highest level. The SEC is the highest level.”
As for a specific decision date for his commitment, Martin gave up that information as well.
“I’ll make a decision after my TCU official in the next few days,” Martin said. “Probably Tuesday I’ll have somewhere I’ll say I’ll go.”
The 5-foot-10, 178-pound Martin was a four-star recruit in the 2016 recruiting cycle and the No. 7 all-purpose back according to 247Sports Composite Ratings. Martin originally committed to Baylor over offers from Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Clemson, Florida State and Notre Dame among many others.
The Tigers only managed to sign one running back in 2016, three-star prospect Malik Miller. Martin will be immediately eligible to play for whichever school he decides to commit to this week.
