Starting this thread now, because people eventually will start asking and it’s a definite possibility.

Koda Martin, son of our new QB coach Kirk Martin. Went to Texas A&M as a three star prospect. 6’6 245 pound TE/OL/DE prospect with offers from all the big guys in the south. Took a redshirt freshman year and turned himself into a 6’6 310 pound tackle. Married Dino’s daughter as well.

Jack, why are you concluding that it's a "definite possibility"? Just because of the relationship or because Koda has made hints of going elsewhere for his Sr. year? Also, he's already redshirted, so would he be considered a graduate-transfer, and won't have to sit?

If he has graduated, he will have 1 year to play wherever (as long as they offer a major that A&M didn't) regardless of whether he has already redshirted or not.

Just passing on something that was mentioned to me yesterday in a conversation. Correct - wouldn’t have to sit a year.

I haven't seen his name come up before yesterday as a possible grad transfer, so there's nothing he's said publicly. But all I do is aggregate. I have no inside knowledge.

Would make a lot of sense to be able to get a P5 starter quality lineman that we can plug into the starting lineup for a year...

Effectiveness of plugging an OL cold into a system? I thought that it took time to develop chemistry between the linemen.

10 a&m offensive linemen on NFL rosters... He had 10 starts last year. That's a pretty good Left Tackle job.

With his experience I believe he could help out with our youngsters.
