Josiah Martin was pumped when he got an offer from Alabama football Wednesday.
Martin is a 2024 wide receiver out of Texas, and he garners a three-star rating from multiple recruiting sites. He holds more than 25 D1 offers, including offers from Arkansas, Ole Miss and Tennessee.
Alabama football became the 29th program to offer Martin when the Crimson Tide’s wide receiver coach Holmon Wiggins got in contact with him.
“Coach Wiggins hit me up a couple of weeks ago,” Martin told Touchdown Alabama. “Then he gave me his number and asked me to call him. I had a great conversation, which started with an introduction that ended with an offer. I’m still blown away. Honestly, it’s a dream program. I feel like every college with success has implemented a piece of what Alabama’s program is. It is top-notch. They have it all.”
Martin is looking to get to Tuscaloosa soon for a visit.
“Coach Wiggins wants me there ASAP,” said Martin. “So the family and I are going to make it happen sooner than later.”
The Texas product has a top 12 at the moment, and he is looking to make a decision this summer after he takes more visits to get a better feel for programs over the next few months.
“I hope to make a decision by July,” Martin said. “Each visit so far I see something different I like. It really comes down to the needs of each program and where my wide receiver skill set fits into that. Also, the relationship building with the coaches. I got to vibe with the coaches.”
At 6-foot and 170 pounds, Martin is one of the best route runners in the 2024 recruiting class. He knows how to create separation off his release at the line of scrimmage. He is also explosive out of his breaks and can gain separation at the top of routes.
