    Former 4 star wide receiver from Iowa City West is now in the transfer portal.

    Anyone else just assume spring practice went poorly for him?

    So he hasn't graduated yet, right?

    So why would he give up getting a degree from Michigan and go someplace else when you know darn well you're never going to be playing in the NFL? Unless he ends up at a Notre Dame, a Northwestern, a Stanford, etc.

    I kinda hope he goes to Iowa because I've never really believed he was that good. He might be better than anyone else Iowa has, but that isn't saying much.

    UNI would be a logical landing spot

    I guess I want if Campbell wants. We were his neighbors when he was really young. Nice family.

    It'll be Iowa City or Ames. I'm sure Campbell wants him.

    If Campbell wants him, hopefully we can get him. If not, I hope he ends up at a place like Oregon

    Even though I don't think ISU needs him, I think it would be hilarious to watch the meltdown from Hawk fans if he did come here. That would almost make it worth it.

    What a disappointing career he has had. Immensely talented. Anyone who saw him play at West would tell you he has enough talent to come in here (Iowa St) and compete or even start right away.

    That's the risk you take when you are the 4th highest WR recruit in your own recruiting class. Michigan was stacked that year w the #12, 116, 138 WR commits along w Martin (181) and another in the 400s.

    Certainly doesnt mean he isnt any good or lacks talent like some on here are saying. I think he would make a great possession receiver - he made every tough catch ever thrown to him throughout HS and was the strongest player on the team in multiple powerlifts.

    Wouldn't hate rolling out this kind of talent on offense in Fall of 2021:

    QB - Purdy (Senior)
    RB - Hall (Junior)
    RB - Brock (Junior)
    TE - Kolar (Senior)
    WR - Scates (Junior)
    WR - Milton (Senior)
    WR - Martin (Senior)

    With or without Martin...damn gonna be fun!

    Not a very nice post.
    Oliver is a winner....he just is on the wrong team at Michigan. Great young man.

    Ok.

    Yes. He is part of a great family. No need to disparage the kid.

    From what I'm reading this is all just an unsubstantiated rumor from a wanna-be, Michigan style Randy Pete. Also, the Michigan receivers coach said he was the starting X at Mich with 3 years to play. Have no idea what's going on but doesn't seem to be problems in the Martin world.

    Chad Leistikow already has him penciled into the two-deep at Iowa.
