Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins has yet to publicly announce his decision for the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Buckeyes' redshirt sophomore quarterback is expected to leave school for the NFL, as he's a probable first-round pick, but he won't be making any official decision until after Ohio State's Rose Bowl game.

Tate Martell appears to be planning on Haskins to leave, though.

The Ohio State freshman quarterback posted the following message on Instagram to sophomore running back J.K. Dobbins, who should get the majority of the carries next season with Mike Weber leaving for the NFL.

Martell appears to be ready to share the starting backfield with Dobbins.

Of course, Haskins might not have made a decision yet, but you can't blame Martell for planning on (and being excited about) taking over the starting quarterback job.

Ohio State and Washington are set to play in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. We'll know more after that.
