“After much thought and prayer, I am extremely thankful to announce my verbal commitment to play D1 soccer and continue my academic career at the University of Southern Miss,” Martin wrote on Instagram. “BIG thanks to God, my coaches, family, and teammates for making me the player I am today!”

The prolific forward is just the latest Oxford player to announce her collegiate commitment in recent weeks, joining teammates Kaitlyn Urbanek, Maddie Gray and Emma Reeder.

Gray committed to play at Louisiana Tech on Feb. 27, Urbanek committed to Furman University on March 7 and Reeder signed on to play with South Alabama on March 21.

Martin played a key role for the Lady Chargers in the past few seasons, guiding them to the Region 1-6A title last season before helping them reach the second round of the playoffs for the fifth consecutive year this season.
