Martell, who was recently named to the Elite 11 along with three SEC pledges, was officially pledged to the Aggies until he announced that he would be opening up his recruitment in a May 4 tweet. That announcement upset Texas A&M wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead, who seemed to reference the five-star signal caller from Las Vegas in a series of tweets about loyalty and accountability. Moorehead deleted the tweets and later apologized, but not before it led to another prospect decommitment and others removing TAMU from consideration.
The Aggies have since landed a commitment from three-star pro-style prospect Connor Blumrick.
Edit: The article previously implied multiple decommitments following Martell.
