Tate Martell is pumped to be a Buckeye.
Life as a Buckeye was great until a blowout loss to Clemson ruined Ohio State’s chances at winning a second national title in three years. After losing several star players to the 2017 NFL Draft, questions about Ohio State’s future loom large.
Enter, Tate Martell.
Although J.T. Barrett announced his decision to come back and will most likely serve as the starting quarterback, don’t sleep on Martell. The incoming freshman took to Twitter to announce his arrival date to Columbus.
Ohio State fans should be just as pumped to have Martell, who is the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the 2017 recruiting class according to 247Sports’ Composite Ranking. He’s the No. 53 recruit overall in the 2017 class, and the No. 2 recruit in the state of Nevada.
Martell finished the 2016 season with over 2,300 yards passing for 41 touchdowns to just one interception, and over 1,200 yards rushing for an additional 21 touchdowns.
