    According to the headline on CR, Taylor Martin might be on-board again, after decommitting about a month ago. He would be a good get and instant help where we need it the DL.....

    Too bad he changed his mind and still couldnt come in for this semester and play spring ball.

    He's a DE now, but his CC coach said that he could play at about 280 lbs, which sounds like more a DT to me.

    I don't know what ISU sees in him, but he must have some potential. He only had 11 tackles, 3.5 TFL, and 2.5 sacks at Antelope Valley C.C. this past season.

    Agreed, I was confused when he decommitted since no other schools were really recruiting him. Now, maybe he realizes this and wants to get back on the bandwagon. I thought initially that it might be something to help get Butler, but now he's at K-State. Whatever, if Rhoads wants him then I'm sure he has some potential. If we get some big tackles who command doubleteams, some d-ends who can win one vs. one matchups, and some LBs who can actually get to the QB if they blitz then we may have a good defense.....but its still to be seen if we have those type of guys.

    Agree, I thought he had to be a combo with Butler, but I guess not. The schools recruiting Martin are not exactly impressive. Whatever.

    He was a May graduate at the earliest so he couldn't have enrolled for the spring either way. Butler is the one that graduated in December.
