Texas Tech is once again reaching into the Cibolo Steele talent pool to try to bolster its’ 2017 recruiting class.

Steele quarterback/athlete Xavier Martin is reportedly taking a visit to Lubbock soon, as the Red Raiders continue to use their pipeline to the South Texas city where they already hired away assistant head coach and running backs coach Mike Jinks back in 2013 and recruited two of Jinks’ former players since.

Martin will presumably take over the Steele spread offense this fall, replacing Texas State-bound L.G. Williams, where he will try to use his elite athleticism as a catalyst for reproducing the success that bred a 13-2 record last season. He will attempt to improve on his numbers from his varsity debut as a sophomore last season where he produced 402 total yards of offense.


Martin ran a 4.62 40-yard dash along with a 4.29 shuttle at the Dallas Nike Combine in March of this year, and sported a 41-inch vertical leap that was one of the best measured at the event.

The Red Raiders have apparently been recruiting Martin to possibly play at corner, but interest has been garnered in Waco as well, as Baylor reportedly has shown Martin some attention at quarterback. Martin also said he hopes to gain looks from other schools such as Auburn, TCU and Texas A&M.

Steele opens their 2015 schedule on August 28th against San Antonio Madison.
