Martin is working to add more

Cibolo Steele 2017 quarterback Xavier Martin's commitment to Texas Tech in July extended the Red Raiders streak to four consecutive recruiting classes that include at least one Knight from Steele High School. Since making his pledge, Martin has been working to build the 2017 class for the Red Raiders and with the nation's top interior offensive lineman
-- Frisco High School's Jack Anderson
-- joining the fold on Monday night, this class looks ready to snowball into something special.
Shoutout too my Boy , and Future OLine man @JackAnderson_53 for committing the best school in the country!!! #TooTurntU !!- OVO1 (@Thexaviermartin) October 6, 2015
Steele's star-studded offense notched a two-point win over DeSoto last month and has rolled through five other teams pretty easily. While it's never wise to overlook any opponent at any level of football, Steele's (6-0) Oct. 23 match-up against Converse Judson (6-0) appears to be the Knights' only real threat to their goal of finishing with a perfect regular season record before heading on to the playoffs. Martin continues to receive interest from Oregon, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Houston and Notre Dame, but is "pretty set" in his pledge with the Red Raiders. With Martin, Anderson and Round Rock offensive lineman Tyler Castaneda on board early, these three have plenty of time to sway more of the states top talent towards the scarlet and black.
"I've been trying to talk to (Duncanville athlete) Jaylin Nelson a lot and receiver Mannie Netherly from Crosby. There's also a lot of linemen and defensive players I've been trying to get too. I'm not positive, but I'm trying to get some more. Jaylin Nelson seems like he wants to go there, but he's not sure yet."
Martin has been very solid with the Red Raiders so far, even recruiting other talented prospects to the cause. With Anderson in the fold now too, it appears the QB's recruiting fire has been stoked even more, and Texas Tech looks to be on the verge of a fantastic 2017 recruiting class. - Will McKay
