College Note - Troy Asa Martin

Birmingham News

Former Auburn running backs Asa Martin and Jordon Ingram have joined the football program at Troy, a school spokesman confirmed to AL.com. Both Martin and Ingram are enrolled in spring semester classes and will participate in spring practice for the Trojans, the 2022 Sun Belt Conference champions. Martin has one year of eligibility remaining, while Ingram has three. Martin - who spent the last four seasons at Memphis - signed with Auburn in the 2018 class after being name Mr. Football by the Alabama Sports Writers Association at Decatur's Austin High School the previous fall. A four-star prospect coming out of high school, he played in five games mostly on special teams as a true freshman. Then-Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn later admitted the Tigers planned to play Martin in only four games that season to preserve his redshirt year, but staffers apparently miscounted and played him in five. Martin transferred to Miami, but never played for the Hurricanes before transferring a second time to Memphis. After sitting out the 2019 season under NCAA transfer rules, Martin played three seasons as part of Memphis' running back rotation. He rushed for a career-best 435 yards and seven touchdowns and also caught 36 passes this past season for the Tigers, and entered the portal as a graduate transfer two weeks ago. - Birmingham News
