An Arkansas spokesperson has relayed to us that Brandon Martin is not currently a member of the football team. He is, however, still enrolled in classes at Arkansas.
I was told this week of a potential transfer destination for Martin, but we do not have that confirmed as of now. This brings a bit of clarity to his situation and why he was not part of Justin Stepp’s tweet earlier this week, which included a picture of him, his family and the receivers group at his house.
Well the throw in or tag along (Jonathan Nance) from that deal turned out to be the more productive player. Then we get the big fast physical grad transfer WR from KU who will not be held back by academic issues. It’s all good. Hope things work out for Brandon Martin at his next stop.
I guess coaches want players to know the plays. We had that same problem in jr high, our fullback was not very bright. The play would be called in the huddle, he’d ask where do I go, where do I go, the whole huddle would pause, somebody told him where to go, and coach got mad as hell on the sidelines.
Just my guess - but I would think this system would be advantageous to both Jarrod Barnes and Koilan Jackson. I hope Mr Jackson’s recovery is going to allow him the chance to show what he can do in this offense. He could really fill that bigger outside receiver position that they like.
Jarrod Barnes has “athlete” written all over him. There has to be a spot for him somewhere. I’m not so sure he wouldn’t be a heck of a corner either. Don’t know about his instincts as to whether defense would fit him or offense though.
[/quote]I know the coaching staff is far more able to put these kids in places to succeed, but after reading how he defended Malik Monk in hoops, I had visions of him being a cornerback. I know that was basketball, but just had it in my mind that he would be good on defense.
