USC recruiter Lance Thompson has been after DL Romello Martin of Brooklyn for a couple of years now and this week he went up to the Big Apple to meet with Martin in person and firm up his official visit plans. Martin will visit USC January 21st.
“Coach Thompson came to see me Monday making sure all my grades are straight,” Martin said. “He said he needs big guys. In the SEC, big guys lead the way. He’s just being straight forward with me. I come in and it’s going to be hard coaching but it’s going to be fun.”
Ole Miss also has been in to see Martin this month and he has set an official visit with the Rebels for January 28th. He’s also considering Florida, Louisville and Miami for visits. He visited USC last summer and Ole Miss last spring.
Martin is not yet in position to declare a favorite.
“I’m still open minded about all five,” he said. “I want to see the schools before I lean towards a favorite.”
