Default Ronnie Martin to transfer

South Carolina cornerback Ronnie Martin is going to transfer. He has not participated in winter workouts lately and is no longer with the program. He's going to finish out the semester at South Carolina and then transfer to USC Upstate, most likely.

Default Re: Ronnie Martin to transfer

Hate to say it, but I saw this one coming.
When we got the commits from Green and Smith to go along with
already having Harris Jr on board, I didn't think we'd see Martin as a major
contributor of the secondary this season. Martin was said to have been
an exceptional cover corner coming out of HS, but he apparently couldn't
show enough ability to get a minimal amout of PT this past season in our
thin secondary. ......... Didn't expect to see him much this coming season
as well unless he was on S/Teams.

I have nothing against Martin as a player, just didn't see him as a major
player with the defense this year unless we failed to sign either Smith OR Green.
Turns out we got both, and I expected Martin to transfer, or settle in to
playing on the Kickoff and/or Kick Coverage teams.

Good Luck to him where ever he ends up. Hope he gets some PT there.

Don't forget Lammons. Smith is likely a S long term.

But still somewhat disappointing considering he was supposedly a rocket during the Shrine Bowl a few years back.

I thought he was injured last season and that's why he didn't play as much. I had high hopes for him and thought he had the potential to be a good one. O well, best of luck to him in whatever he chooses to do next.

ditto above.... This one seems to b expected hearing many of you post but if indeed he ws encouraged or wasn't expected to contend for PT it doesn't pass the sense test for me given we just reevaluated and resigned him this past cycle after having seen him vs stiffer comp AND he was supposedly injured this past season.
Is this an example of extremly poor evaulation? if not then what is the cause??

1. There was not really a numbers issue last year.
2. Evaluations don't always pan out for various reasons. None of us know enough to say for sure so getting into why it happened won't help much. Until proven otherwise I always assume the guy did his best and just has a better chance of playing elsewhere.
3. His name was listed as a probable transfer months ago in recruiting discussions.
4. Not sure if it hurts our depth or not. It only does if he would have seen the field over the incoming guys.

Is everybody assuming that because he's tall? Or are his feet not quick enough to play corner? I think it would be good to have tall corners.

He is an incredible tackler in space and has more room to grow size wise.

Making next year's depth chart a little more attractive to the 2015 CB recruits. No sure it will be enough if Lammons, Harris, Groves, McWilliams and Green settle in though.

The silver lining is that Jamari Smith may be excelling in the weight room and conditioning drills. Maybe Martin sees the handwriting on the wall as far as competing for PT next year. This is total speculation, but seems like good news about Jamari if indeed the transfer is related to numbers.
