Tate Martell's collegiate journey has been a whirlwind, almost to the point of disaster. The quarterback was absent from the Hurricanes' contest against FIU on Saturday. Speculation was brewing that Martell might have left the team.

But according to the latest report, the Miami QB remains on the roster. Yet, there's still the possibility Martell is moving on from the Hurricanes.

"Tate Martell remains on UM roster at this moment, but that is fluid,"

Tate Martell remains on UM roster at this moment, but that is fluid. One player said he has left briefly multiple times this year, and Enos has said he's going through stuff. Not at game Saturday

">Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald said. "One player said he has left briefly multiple times this year, and Enos has said he's going through stuff. Not at game Saturday."

It looks like Martell is going through some personal matters. But the question remains - has the Miami QB played his last game in a Hurricanes uniform?

Martell has moved on before. The dynamic athlete started his collegiate career with Ohio State. But as he slipped down the depth chart, Martell wanted a new start elsewhere.

Miami appeared to be a perfect fit as the Hurricanes started to slip back into national relevance in 2017. But things haven't gone Martell's way as he once again struggled to earn first-team reps, sparking an eventual position change to receiver.

That position change didn't bring the anticipated results, as a move back to QB came just a few weeks ago.

Are Martell's days at Miami over? Or will the dual-threat QB remain with the Hurricanes? Looks like this new chapter of Martell's career is just getting started.
