Martin, Aggies finalizing recruiting class

Aggie head coach Doug Martin said earlier this week the Aggies were close to finalizing recruiting with National Signing Day less than a month away.

Martin said the Aggies have 19 verbal commitments at the moment and plan to sign 25 players in this year's signing class.

Martin has said since arriving at New Mexico State that the team would primarily recruit the immediate region - Texas and New Mexico, along with other southwest locations and Southern California.

When asked if the progam's ventured outside of that area, particularly as it pertains to recruiting a quarterback, Martin said, "We would do that for any position if a coach has a tie. Coach Brandon, he has ties up in the Colorado area, he has guys up there that he trusts a lot. A couple of quarterbacks there. A couple from the Washington DC, Maryland area that we looked at. Other than that, our area's been Texas and those types of areas. If we have a connection, we'd certainly do that. We're not pursuing recruits outside of those areas unless we have a direct connection."
