Four days after four-star running back Jaydn Ott announced his decommitment from Cal, the program has lost yet another incoming Bear via Twitter: Justyn Martin.
Martin is currently ranked the nation’s 21st best quarterback in the class of 2022, according to 247sports. A highly-touted four-star recruit from Inglewood High School, he currently holds offers from schools such as Ole Miss, UCLA and Michigan, to name a few.
Before Martin’s commitment to Cal, which was announced Jan. 18, the blue and gold were actively looking for a future replacement for redshirt senior starting quarterback Chase Garbers. According to 247sports, Garbers was the 34th-ranked quarterback in California for his respective Class of 2017. Comparatively, Martin, who was Cal’s highest-rated prospect in its recruiting class of 2022, is ranked the state’s 22nd quarterback and would’ve likely vied to fill the void.
