With National Signing Day a week away, five-star offensive tackle Martez Ivey remains one of the best uncommitted prospects in the class of 2015. Ivey will be making his college decision on ESPNU on Feb. 4th, but he already knows where he'll be attending school.

The 6-foot-6, 275-pound lineman has named Florida and Auburn has his finalists. Ivey grew up a huge Gators fan, but he recently said that it's a much more split decision than people would think.

"People usually say it will be Florida because I was a Florida fan growing up but I had choices from all over, but I chose Florida and Auburn because that's different to me," Ivey said, via ESPN. "Those two places are where I want to be at. Now I'm just trying to choose just one of them. If I could go to both schools -- I would."

That's a statement that should make both fanbases happy because it's a testament that both are excellent programs that appeal to some of the top players in the country.

With both schools having coaching changes, Ivey doesn't get caught up in that because he knows coaches come and go. You need to choose a school that you'll be comfortable at.

"I'm not really big in to specific coaches," Ivey said. "They come and go because it's a business. Nothing's guaranteed in their position so I'm not really a coaches guy. I'm not going to sit here and tell you that I like a school because of 'this coach and that coach.' That's just how I feel about it. Like coach Muschamp was at Florida recruiting me and now he's at Auburn recruiting me. So coaches-wise, I don't really get caught up in that."

Right now, 247Sports' Crystal ball has a 81 percent chance that Ivey will end up at Florida.
