A former 3-star recruit who came to LSU as the No. 3 defensive end in Louisiana in the Class of 2016, Martin would have been stuck in a logjam at B-linebacker in 2018 behind K’Lavon Chaisson, Ray Thornton, Andre Anthony and incoming recruits Jarell Cherry and Travez Moore.
Martin will transfer to East Mississippi Community College, the transfer destination for former LSU quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr. and the location of the Netflix series Last Chance U.
