It’s all fun and games when high school prospects who are committed to other schools start taking visits to Eugene to check out the Ducks, but when an Oregon commit announces he is going on a recruiting visit to another school, feelings start to change.
That’s the case for four-star cornerback Cole Martin, who was the first member of the 2023 recruiting class for the Ducks. Martin, who is the son of Oregon defensive backs coach Demetrice Martin, announced on Tuesday he planned to take an unofficial visit to the Louisville Cardinals this weekend.
Martin is ranked as the No. 10 CB and No. 74 player in the 2023 class, according to 247Sports.
Committed recruits taking additional visits have been a recent topic of conversation for the Ducks, but it’s usually the other way around. Earlier this spring, four-star wide receiver Ashton Cozart, an Oklahoma commit, visited Oregon and decommitted from the Sooners shortly after, flipping to the Ducks. This coming week, Oregon will host four-star defensive lineman Johnny Bowens, who is a member of the Texas A&M 2023 class.
The fact Martin is taking a visit to Louisville may mean nothing. He is the son of an Oregon coach and from the looks and sounds of it, loves the Ducks and is excited to play in Eugene. It is something to keep an eye on, though.
