Report: WR Oliver Martin to transfer from Michigan to Iowa


Just days after entering the transfer portal, it appears wide receiver Oliver Martin could have a decision made. According to a report from Hawkeye Nation, Martin will transfer from Michigan to Iowa in a move that could become official as early as this week.

Martin is a former missed target of the Hawkeyes. The top-rated player in the state of Iowa opted to head to Ann Arbor to begin his college football career, so coming home to play for Iowa now is a win for Kirk Ferentz in the long run.

Martin will be forced to sit out the 2019 season due to typical NCAA transfer rules, but his addition to the offense will be well received once he is eligible le again. Martin will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2020.

After redshirting for the Wolverines in 2017, Martin caught 11 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown for Michigan last fall.
