 Asa Martin

Asa congrats on the Ducks offer!

AM: Thank you!!

When did you get the offer? Was it from Running Backs Coach Pimpleton?

AM: About 15 mins ago, no sir it was Coach Woodie.

So how long have the Ducks been recruiting you? What did you and Coach Woodie talk about?

AM: Today was my first time talking to Coach Woodie. He was just telling me how he really liked my film, and said they don’t usually offer a lot of players like that. He thinks I'm a special player.

They must have really liked your film, how interested in the Ducks are you?

AM: I'm really interested it's definitely a place I'm going to try to visit.

Will distance be a factor for you and your family? Have you been to Oregon/West Coast before?

AM: No sir, distance won't ever be a factor. I moved to Florida and went to IMG when I was 15.  I have been to the West Coast before, just haven't been to Oregon yet.

Did Coach Woodie talk specifically how they see you fitting into their offensive style or plan?

AM: No sir, no specific plan.

Where did you move from when you moved Florida?

AM: I moved from Decatur, Alabama, but I recently transferred back for family issues.

Sorry to hear, hope things are better, will you be in Florida or Alabama for you senior year?

AM: Alabama.

Do you play any other sports?

AM: Basketball and baseball.

Sweet, what positions in both sports? What your current height and weight?

AM: 6-0, 193, center field in baseball, and the 2 guard in basketball.

Thanks for your time!
