Tampa Catholic senior offensive lineman Corey Martinez, one of the highest rated recruits in Hillsborough County, has decided to play in the 2014 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl in California.

The game, which will be played Jan. 5 at the StubHub Center, will be televised on Fox Sports and is presented by the United States Marine Corps. Martinez, who a few weeks ago verbally committed to Florida State, will play for the East Team.

Martinez made the decision Saturday morning. The event will feature some of the top seniors in the nation.

Recently, Martinez was among the nation’s top college prospects featured on ESPN “The Opening”. The show followed the college football recruits as they competed and trained at a 7-on-7 and skills event.

Martinez’s other finalists, according to ESPN, were Miami, Alabama, Vanderbilt, Tennessee and LSU.

Martinez, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound four-star recruit, is the No. 15 offensive guard in the nation, according to ESPN. Martinez received more than two dozen college offers. He was also a Tribune All-Hillsborough County first-team selection.
