OSU football: Transfer receiver Tay Martin granted immediate eligibility

STILLWATER — 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. 

Martin will wear jersey No. 4, which had previously belonged to running back Deondrick Glass on offense. Glass is now No. 33.
