Tate Martell is back in the NCAA transfer portal
When it comes to the pantheon of high-profile quarterbacks that are indecisive, Tate Martell has to top the all-time list.
The former high school star quarterback for Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas was so touted before even arriving in college, he was featured by the reality documentary QB1: Beyond the Lights.
As far as his football career has gone, being on that show has been the highlight of his career.
Now comes word from Matt Zenitz of AL.com that Martell is one again in the NCAA transfer portal. It isn’t the first time, either.
If you don’t remember Martell’s recruitment, it was a winding journey.
First, he committed to Steve Sarkisian at Washington back in 2012, only to decommit from the program in early 2015. Martell would later commit to Kevin Sumlin’s Texas A&M program, likely hoping to become the next Johnny Manziel for the Aggies.
His commitment to the Aggies lasted less than a year, as he turned around and committed to Urban Meyer’s Ohio State program. Martell lasted one season with the Buckeyes and left after Justin Fields transferred into the program from Georgia.
Martell fought to get a waiver to play for Miami, which he received, only to attempt one pass in two seasons with the Hurricanes.
Now Martell is leaving Miami as a graduate transfer. If he goes to the Big 12, he will have hit all five Power 5 conferences at some point during his career.
Here is to hoping his next stop goes better than his last few stops around college football.
