On Saturday afternoon, Ohio State safety Cameron Martinez announced his intentions to transfer to Boston College.

Martinez spent 4 years at Ohio State, playing in three of them including a full 12 and 13 games in 2021 and 2022, though he only ever started two of them. He found a role in the Ohio State defensive backfield as a back-up role player for nickel packages and was used effectively, racking up 38 career tackles and even nabbing a pick-six. But he was hurt in 2023 and saw his role diminish as the season went on, so he has decided to transfer to BC.

This is another key pickup for Jeff Hafley in the secondary, which had a lot of struggles this season, especially when veteran CB Elijah Jones went out for the year. By bringing in a veteran presence and some new recruits, Hafley and his staff are hoping that the secondary can return to the strong play of years’ past.

Welcome to the Heights, Cameron!
