Ohio State acquired a commitment from Tate Martell for Signal Calling Duties in 2017
When the best dual threat quarterback in America, Tate Martell from Nevada, didn't commit to Texas A&M in May, many believed he would take his time to consider his options.
That appeared to be the idea, because Martell kept telling journalists that he intended to make many official visits, prior to deciding his path later in the autumn and registering early at his chosen school.
However, during the past fourteen days, Martell began to narrow his list down, with one option - Ohio State - constantly in his thoughts ever since he visited Columbus in March, when both he and his father were impressed.
Martell decided to make a trip to Columbus Ohio and the OSU campus, along with his whole family, during the weekend and could not contain his feelings about the Buckeyes any more. He issued his commitment to Urban Meyer's team while on the college campus.
In light of this move, OSU's talented class has another potential star, and fourteen players in total. Martell is OSU's second quarterback for this cycle, along with Danny Clark from Ohio. This helps to increase the Team Rankings lead Ohio State has over Alabama, according to many recruiting sites.
Also, Martell's decision should assist with several other goals, because he stated before that after he chooses his school, he will join the recruitment drive. One player who will take note is Tyjon Lindsey, the five star WR who lived with Martell's family when he played for Bishop Gorman. Both players are close friends, who think highly of each other. Therefore, with Martell on board, it would be a surprise if Lindsey opts for a team other than Ohio State.
