As if enough wasn’t already going on at Missouri, the protests and racially-charged controversy have now hit the recruiting trail.
Sci Martin, a 3-star defensive end and the No. 42 player in Louisiana, told SEC Country he has removed Mizzou from his top five. That narrows his list down to LSU, TCU, Utah and Oklahoma.
Martin, who leads the New Orleans area in sacks this season, said he wanted no part of what’s taking place in Columbia, Mo.
“Their campus is going out of control,” Martin said Wednesday night.
Martin said Missouri was “pretty high” on his list. He previously said he liked the Tigers’ coaching staff and how he fit in their defensive scheme.
Because of what’s going on, Missouri will no longer receive consideration.
“They were pretty high,” Martin said of Missouri, “but I’m not going back in time with this type of madness.”
Sci Martin spoke with NOLA earlier this season.
