One of the top running backs recruits from the 2018 class is back on the market after spending just one season with the program he committed to. Former four-star running back Asa Martin attended Auburn this season, but unfortunate circumstances led to his transfer from the school just over a week ago.
Auburn accidentally burned his redshirt by allowing Martin to play in five games during his freshman season – the new redshirt rule only allows a player to play in four games. Head coach Gus Malzahn took significant heat from Auburn fans around the country after the botched handling of their young star running back.
After the error, Martin took to Twitter to announce his plans to leave the program.
One week later, Martin is reportedly visiting a major program. Recruiting insider Chad Simmons revealed Martin plans to visit Miami this weekend.

Every major program in the country will be after Martin, who was one of the top recruits in the country. Martin was the No. 9 running back recruit in the 2018 class.
Stay tuned for the latest transfer news for the former Auburn Tigers running back.
