AUBURN, Ala. — The run on five Baylor signees released from their national letters of intent has begun and Auburn is getting involved.
Former Baylor signee Kameron Martin will visit Auburn Friday evening through Saturday, according to ESPN’s Gerry Hamilton.
Martin is a 4-star running back and is rated seventh nationally by 247Sports Composite.
Offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee was Martin’s primary recruiter before he initially signed with Baylor. Baylor allowed five signees to transfer without NCAA penalty in the wake of former coach Art Briles being suspended with the intent to terminate.
Martin will visit TCU on Sunday, according to ESPN. He will be immediately eligible to play in the fall.
The Port Arthur, Texas native runs the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds. He rushed for 963 yards and six touchdowns to go along with 10 catches for 133 yards during his senior season at Memorial High.
Martin’s recruitment makes it at least three players with Baylor connections Auburn is actively recruiting. The Tigers consider quarterback Kellen Mond, a former Baylor commitment, its top target in the class of 2017. He is expected to announce a decision between Auburn and Texas A&M before July 17.
The timing is perfect for Auburn as the NCAA’s recruiting calendar hits a dead period starting Monday. It ends July 10.
