2014 three-star offensive tackle, strong-side defensive end, and tight end recruit Koda Martin will be on an unofficial visit today to check out the Oklahoma Sooners, and they are one of four teams that Martin is highest on. He is also extremely interested in the Alabama Crimson Tide, LSU Tigers, and Texas A&M Aggies. The Texas Longhorns are also heavily in the mix for the services of the Manvel, Texas star.
Martin is one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the country, and he is viewed by most people as best fit at the offensive tackle position. His versatility is what makes him so coveted by many programs, and there are many other analysts who think he would have more success at tight end. The 247Composite has him just outside the top 500, but he checks in at 39th among offensive tackles in the nation and 61st among recruits in the talent-rich state of Texas.
The 6’6″, 245 pound Manvel High standout has also received offers from the Arkansas Razorbacks, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Baylor Bears, Colorado Buffaloes, UCLA Bruins, and Auburn Tigers.
Koda Martin’s visit to Oklahoma today will certainly be interesting, and that isn’t just because he is very interested in the program. At almost every visit he has been to, something big has happened in Martin’s recruitment. When he trekked to Texas and Auburn for unofficial visits in late March, both the Tigers and Longhorns extended offers. When he visited Alabama’s junior day, the Tide offered. Interestingly enough, this came a day after his visit to the SEC rival LSU Tigers, and they too offered Martin on the trip. Only Baylor didn’t offer Martin on a visit since the month of February, and that was because they already offered him back in June on a camp trip (Martin visited Baylor in November and attended junior day in Waco in February).
