Khymani Martin talks about why he committed to BYU football and his plans for the summer

OREM — BYU wide receiver commitment Khymani Martin was in town last weekend to take part in the Sky's the Limit camp run by former Cougar wideout Margin Hooks.

Martin is a 6-foot-2, 180-pound receiver from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, who committed to BYU and plans to sign a letter of intent in 2019. Since his commitment, he's taken part in several national camps in which he's had the opportunity to prove himself among the nation's best.

Martin committed to BYU shortly after an unofficial trip to the program following Cougars' conclusion of spring camp.

"(It was) the family environment and like how they run the program," Martin said of his decision to commit to BYU. "It feels like the best fit."

Since committing to BYU Martin has received interest from programs such as Stanford, Florida and Central Florida, among others. His plan is to continue exploring options, although the Cougars remain a strong favorite.

"I want to have options," Martin said.

Martin's main coaching contact at BYU is receivers coach Ben Cahoon, who he contacts about every other week.

"He's a great guy," Martin said of Cahoon. "I have nothing negative to say about him. It's all positive things."

Martin is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and plans to play four straight years after arriving at BYU for the 2019 season.
