Frank Martin II, a 300-pound offensive tackle from Santa Ana, has officially committed to USC after having verbally committed to USC early 2015.
Martin played at Mater Dei High School, a school notorious for producing top-notch college recruits. Martin is a 4-star recruit and ESPN ranked him 19th in his respective position.
Martin mostly played tackle throughout high school, but could potentially see playing time at the guard position. Martin is flexible with positions, something that will make him an asset as a new recruit. Martin has a strong frame, quick feet, and an explosive break off the snap. He ran the 40-yard dash in 5.23 seconds, putting him at the top of his class for offensive tackles.
Martin is an aggressive player who uses his leg strength to stabilize on the line. Martin finishes all his blocks assertively and tries to bring each defender to the ground. As vicious as he is during plays, Martin keeps a calm demeanor in between whistles and off the field.
Martin joins a bevy of both veteran and young offensive line talents that USC possesses. Though the spot for him may not be open right away, Martin provides the Trojans a good building piece for the future of pass protection and run blocking.
Not only is strong, but Martin's size makes him a highly sought after recruit at big-name schools. Martin was recruited by Texas A&M, Utah, Michigan, Arizona State, and many others. He made his decision to come to the Coliseum quickly and simply, stating that USC is his "dream school".
