It's only been about a week and a half since Rocket Digest last talked to South Dakota punter Kyle…
Rockets Looking at South Dakota Punter
Those kind of stats have college coaches taking notice of Kyle. "I have a full-ride offer from Rice University in Texas and several other schools are recruiting me," Kyle Martens told Rocket Digest. "I'm hearing from Toledo, Stanford, Nebraska, Nevada-Las Vegas, North Dakota State, South Dakota State, and some other schools," added Martens.
Kyle has setup an official visit to Rice for January 18th, and plans to setup visits to Toledo and Stanford as well. He is unsure of what the dates of the Toledo and Stanford visits will be because he is also a post player on Spearfish's basketball team and has a busy schedule with practices and games.
Kyle is being recruited to Toledo by head coach Tom Amstutz and has talked to him several times. He is looking forward to the opportunity to see Toledo's campus on an official visit.
Right now Rice is the only school that has officially offered Martens. He is being recruited to Rice by head coach David Bailiff and special teams coach Rick LaFavers.
Kyle is being recruited as a punter by all of the schools, but they also like the fact that he could do the kicking duties if needed.
Martens is pretty wide open on his choices and doesn't really have any favorites, but gives Rice a slight edge since they are the only school that has officially offered to date.
He has no timeframe for making a decision on his college future, and could wait as long as signing day on February 6th.
Stay tuned to Rocket Digest over the next few weeks as we keep you updated on Kyle Martens recruitment.
