Gamecocks Football Recruiting: Ronnie Martin Signs

The South Carolina Gamecocks got a recruiting boost before Christmas as junior college cornerback Ronnie Martin has signed a national letter of intent to play football.

Martin originally signed with the Gamecocks in February 2011 but took a slight detour to Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, Ga. He was regarded as the fifth-best junior college cornerback in the nation, according to 247Sports.

This is a big addition the the Gamecocks secondary as they need him going forward. Martin is likely to compete for playing time next year.

This is a happy turn of events for Martin as he has dreamed of being a Gamecock and took a long road to realize his dream. We welcome Ronnie and look forward to him doing great things at USC.

Here is a old recruiting video of Martin in action, notice the speed and footwork:
