The hype for the 2014 wing prospects from Davie County (NC) is rising after NC State, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest offered them scholarships, while Clemson, Georgetown, North Carolina, Ohio State and Providence and more are showing interest.

"I think Wake Forest [is showing the most interest] right now," Cody Martin. "I'm just keeping all of my options open."

Like his brother, Caleb Martin is keeping his options open too, and is in no rush to make a decision.

Jeff Battle is recruiting the Martin twins for Wake Forest.
