 Tay Martin, Oklahoma State, Player News


  Now a super-senior in his fifth year as a player, Martin is ready to follow Wallace's path to the NFL. In fact, one of the reasons he picked OSU last year was its knack for getting receivers to the next level lately. Sanders has seen unique skills in Martin that will help the Cowboys this season. "He does everything well, but one thing he really does well is go get the ball at its high point," Sanders said. "His vertical is phenomenal. He'll make any diving catch, just like Tylan would. I can't really compare Tay and Tylan together, because they're two different receivers, but at the same time, they're both great receivers. Tay is great at securing the catch, whether it's going up to high-point the ball, getting low and scooping or diving or anything. "Tay is great. If he keeps pushing and keeps getting better, it's only gonna go uphill for him." - Daily Oklahoman

  Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders knows his security blanket is gone. Those long throws down the sideline that would almost always be caught by Tylan Wallace - now a Baltimore Raven - won't be there this year. "I ain't gonna lie, that's a nice little handkerchief to keep in your pocket," Sanders said with a smile at Big 12 Media Days last month. "That's one you don't want to let go, but everything comes to an end." So, after two years as the starting quarterback with Wallace as his right-hand man, Sanders will be looking at a new face in the most important receiver position in the OSU offense. Enter Tay Martin. As the Cowboys open preseason camp on Friday morning with the first practice of the season, Martin will look to excel in his new role.

A year ago at this time, Martin was at Washington State, facing a year with no football, since the Pac-12 hadn't yet determined if it would have a season because of the pandemic. So Martin bolted, and found a school closer to his Houma, Louisiana, home, landing in Stillwater in mid-August. A gifted receiver with good size at 6-foot-3 and 186 pounds, Martin looked like he might fight for playing time early, but his opportunities were few and far between. "Tay hadn't been in shape until January - for us, he hadn't been in shape," OSU coach Mike Gundy said. "So you're trying to play in a fast-paced offense, you're playing at a position that requires a lot of thinking and route-adjustment, based on what we do offensively. When you're tired, your thinking is not good. "He's competitive. He's tough. He loves to play football and he's bought into our system. That's why I think he's gonna play good." - Daily Oklahoman

  Tay Martin hasn't been at Oklahoma State long, but he's making a quick impact. OSU coach Mike Gundy says he expects the 6-foot-3, 186-pound transfer receiver from Washington State to be heavily involved when No. 11 Oklahoma State faces Tulsa at 11 a.m. Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium. Martin had over 1,600 receiving yards in three seasons at Washington State, playing in Mike Leach's spread offense. He announced his decision to transfer on Aug. 22, and learned a little over a week ago that he had been granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA, since the Pac-12 is not playing football this fall. "I would expect him to get an extensive number of snaps in Saturday's game," Gundy said, noting the similarities of the Leach offense to what OSU runs. "The terminology is relatively similar, so it did help him in his adjustment to Oklahoma State. "An extra week of practice was an advantage for him." - Stillwater Press

  Oklahoma State transfer Tay Martin, a receiver with more than 1,600 receiving yards in his career, has been granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA, Martin posted on Twitter on Friday. The 6-foot-3, 186-pound Martin announced his intention to transfer to OSU on Aug. 22, leaving Washington State, which is a member of the Pac-12 Conference and not expected to play football in the fall. In his three seasons as Washington State, Martin had 1,615 yards and 18 touchdowns on 143 receptions. Martin was regarded as a fringe NFL draft prospect after his junior season at Washington State, but chose to stay in school. He immediately enters the competition for playing time at the outside receiver position with Braydon Johnson and Dee Anderson. - Daily Oklahoman

  Martin has been productive at Washington State, and was regarded as a fringe NFL prospect after his junior season. In his three seasons for the Cougars, he had 1,615 yards and 18 touchdowns on 143 receptions. If granted eligibility, Martin would immediately enter the competition for playing time at the outside receiver position with Braydon Johnson and Dee Anderson. But a cryptic quote from offensive coordinator Kasey Dunn earlier this week might have hinted at part of the reason why Martin was a beneficial addition. Asked about the competition for snaps at the outside receiver position opposite Tylan Wallace, Dunn mentioned some injury issues. "We've got some good players over there," Dunn said. "We've had some injuries up and down at that position, so it's kind of day-to-day who's out there." - Daily Oklahoman

  In a move to get closer to his daughter, Washington State receiver Davontavean Martin - more commonly referred to as Tay - is transferring to Oklahoma State for his final season of college football. Martin is from Houma, Louisiana, which is the home of his 1-year-old daughter according to the Spokesman-Review in Spokane, Washington. Martin, a 6-foot-3, 186-pound senior, entered the transfer portal earlier this week and announced his decision on Saturday evening. In his three seasons as Washington State, Martin had 1,615 yards and 18 touchdowns on 143 receptions. - The Oklahoman

  On Monday, Washington State lost one of its top offensive players to the transfer portal. On Tuesday, it was the Cougars' defense that took a rather significant hit. Skyler Thomas, a versatile defensive back who started 25 of 26 games the last two seasons at both safety positions and also nickel, announced on Twitter he was entering the transfer portal and plans to reopen his recruitment.

"Would like to thank Washington State for a great four years," Thomas wrote. "I am forever thankful for Coug nation. I am also thankful for all the coaches who have helped me get this point. With that being said I have put my name in the transfer portal and would (like) to reopen my recruitment." Thomas' announcement comes approximately 24 hours after Tay Martin, arguably the team's best returning wide receiver, confirmed to The Spokesman-Review he too was entering the portal. Neither player offered a reason behind their decision, but it's possible both are looking for an opportunity to play this fall after the Pac-12 announced last week that it is postponing its season. The SEC, Big 12 and ACC are still moving ahead with a fall season, along with a few mid-major and FCS conferences. - Seattle Times
