Happy Tuesday Husky fans. The Huskies got some great news today when former 4-star defensive end Jeremiah Martin from Texas A&M announced he was transferring to UW. Listed at 6’5” and 262 pounds on the A&M roster, Martin was heavily recruited by UW back in 2018 and visited them just before signing day before ultimately committing to the Aggies.
Out of high school Martin held offers from Alabama, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and USC. He finished his senior season in San Bernardino, CA with 30.5 sacks. Unfortunately his production at Texas A&M so far hasn’t matched the high school pedigree.
When you look at Martin’s frame you can envision a potential Joe Tryon or Levi O player who could be a disruptive force on the line. This last season Martin played in 9 games and accounted for 2 tackles. He has appeared in 4+ games in 3 seasons in College Station however since everyone got an eligibility mulligan for 2020 it means that Martin has 3 years to play 2 at this point. After the 2021 season the Huskies will lose Ryan Bowman and potentially ZTF, so at the very least he should help provide depth alongside Laiatu Latu and Sav’ell Smalls as a senior for the 2022 season.
Here is some film of him recently working out.
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
