“Josh started as a sophomore at 220 pounds and played last year at 250,” Bonnabel coach Brett Bonnaffons said. “He is now 275. He may end up being 300 pounds and he can be one of the best three-technique players in college football. He has strength, good hands and good speed and he is tough. He has a chance to have one of the best years of any defensive players in Bonnabel history.”

McNeese offered the 6-foot-4, 280-pound Martin in early August. He had an outstanding junior season for the Bruins, recording 75 tackles with 16 for loss and five sacks.
“They showed me the interest that a lot of other schools didn’t and they didn’t wait to make the offer as other schools did,” Wilson said. “The coaches are always showing me love and doing so much for me. I felt like a part of the family. Coach Frank Wilson is very humble and I really liked that. I was considering Arkansas Pine-Bluff and had interest in Louisiana (Lafayette).”
