Last week, Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell seemed "100 percent confident" that he would be the starting quarterback in Columbus next year. 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.
He had this to say before the Rose Bowl regarding a potential Fields transfer.
"I am just going to tell you - if anyone comes in, it's going to". That tweet no longer exists.
As an undergraduate, Martell would have to sit out next season if he transfers to another school without receiving a waiver from Ohio State. He's the second high-profile QB to be added to the transfer database this week.
The dual-threat quarterback now joins a crowded quarterback transfer market which will also include Alabama's Jalen Hurts.
Look, Martell has every right to transfer and do what is in his best interest. Fields as applied for a waiver to play immediately, and the Toledo Blade reported that a decision from the NCAA could be made as early as February. He completed 23 passes for 269 yards and one touchdown while rushing for 128 yards with two touchdowns in his backup role.
