">Cartier Goes To Kansas State
A source close to Martin recently told us that Cartier had a top list of Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Kentucky and Texas. Martin had elevated Kansas State and Oklahoma State to his top two before making a decision today, according to a source familiar with Cartier's recruiting process.
Kentucky had an outside shot. The Wildcats had gotten in late with Cartier and this might have hurt them just a little.
Martin previously told us this past summer he had offers from Illinois, Oklahoma State, N.C. State, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas Tech and Houston. But this list has been chopped down significantly over the past several months.
Martin was invited to the adidas ABCD Camp in New Jersey last July, but he declined an invitation so that he could attend summer school classes. Martin said he does plan on signing in the Fall.
