Oklahoma State Gets Big-Time Washington State WR Transfer Tay Martin

OSU is getting another good one at wide receiver.

Oklahoma State’s deep wide receiver group got a little bit deeper on Saturday when 6-foot-3 Washington State wideout Tay Martin announced that he’s transferring from Pullman to Stillwater to play out his senior year.

He entered the transfer portal a week ago and declared his destination on Twitter.

The rangy, athletic Martin is entering the NCAA transfer portal just one week after the Pac-12 postponed its fall season due to the coronavirus pandemic. Martin’s decision to enter the portal was reported by Rivals.com, and the receiver later confirmed it with The Spokesman-Review.

It’s unclear why Martin is leaving Pullman on the horizon of his senior season, but the timing of it suggests the 6-foot-3, 186-pound receiver could be looking to play elsewhere this fall in order to boost his chances of being selected in the 2021 NFL Draft. [Spokesman-Review]

Martin is from Louisiana and said he wanted to be closer to home and his daughter, Reign, during the pandemic. He was a three-star wide receiver coming out of Ellender Memorial in Houma, Louisiana (a state OSU has recruited well). His offers out of high school were minimal, but his production at Washington State was impressive.

He’ll fill in alongside Tylan Wallace, Dillon Stoner, Braydon Johnson, Dee Anderson, Landon Wolf and Langston Anderson. Is that a good group of wide receivers with Spencer Sanders tossing it all over the yard?

Martin’s story is a great one, too. His mom died four years ago, and his dad was incarcerated. Watching him talk about that story here is incredibly impressive and gives you hope for what’s to come, not just on the field but (more importantly) off it as well.
