Photo/Isaac BrekkenTate Martell was a four-star quarterback in the 2017 class. Martell signed with Ohio State after committing to Washington (who was then coached by Steve Sarkisian) while in middle school and then Texas A&M.
Martell was set up for the top job until Fields came in.
He had this to say before the Rose Bowl regarding a potential Fields transfer.
"I'm going to be honest, that's what's really kept me here to this point", he said. "[Day] has an NFL-type offense that's hard to learn. I've put two years of working my a- off for something that I've been waiting for and dreaming of having my whole life". Let's hope he doesn't swing and miss, especially on his second time, if he does transfer. That tweet no longer exists.
Mars' ask for Fields to have immediate eligibility for the 2019 season could take some time, but he expects an answer within the next six weeks. He played in 12 games for the Bulldogs, threw four touchdown passes and ran for four more during his first season in Athens. He also had 22 carries for 128 yards and two touchdowns.
