Kameron Martin was among the first members of Baylor’s 2016 recruiting class when he committed in the summer of 2014. He also was among the most vocal members, urging other players to follow him. And he celebrated his school choice with a rather large tattoo on his arm.
Now in light of the firing of coach Art Briles, Martin does not plan to enroll for the summer session next week and has asked for his release, according to ESPN.com and other reports. Martin was a four-star recruit from Memorial (Port Arthur, Texas) who was ranked as the No. 7 all-purpose back in the class by the 247Sports Composite.
Other members of Baylor’s ESPN-ranked No. 17 recruiting class were scheduled to enroll next week. It is unclear whether others will ask for releases or whether the school will grant those releases.
Texas, TCU and Missouri are among the schools he is expected to consider, according to the ESPN report.
Jadeen Peevy, a three-star defensive tackle from Bellaire, Texas who committed to Baylor in early April, followed a day later.
