The No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the country committed to Ohio State this evening and with his pledge, a five-star wide receiver (or two or three) could be following him to Columbus.
Tate Martell, a four-star quarterback in the 2017 class out of Las Vegas, announced his commitment to Ohio State on Twitter.
The 5-foot-10, 203-pound prospect out of Bishop Gorman (Nevada) is very close with Tyjon Lindsey, a five-star wide receiver in the same class. They played together at Bishop Gorman before Lindsey moved back to California this winter.
Lindsey congratulated Martell on Twitter regarding his commitment. Martell responded, "You are next!"
There has long been speculation that Martell and Lindsey will end up playing for the same school. Ohio State has now obviously added half of the potential package deal and the Buckeyes are believed to be the favorite to land the other half.
Lindsey, a speedy 5-foot-8 wideout out of California, is currently crystal-balled to Ohio State.
He recently did this at Rivals' 5-Star Challenge.
Martell will surely be recruiting Lindsey to Columbus, but the Corona, Calif. product won't be the only five-star wide receiver the quarterback tries to push to the Buckeyes. Jeremy Birmingham of Eleven Warriors says five-star wide receivers Trevon Grimes and Donovan Peoples-Jones will also be a "priority" for Martell.
