We have Tate Martell’s first viral moment as a member of the Miami Hurricanes’ football program. It’s going to be tough to top, too.
Martell, the former top quarterback recruit, transferred into Miami’s football program after spending two seasons at Ohio State. The Las Vegas, Nevada native considered a couple of major programs before deciding on The U.
It’s unclear if Martell will be made eligible for the 2019 season, but the quarterback is putting in some serious work regardless.
Martell was trying to work on some routes inside the facility earlier this week, but something got in the way.
Martell was then able to show off his running ability.

Martell tweeted the following:
“I wanted to throw routes… the dog wanted to work on zone read. So we worked on zone read,” he wrote.

That’s the kind of quickness that should have Miami fans excited about the future.
As far as Martell’s eligibility for 2019 goes, the NCAA’s decision on former Georgia quarterback Justin Fields could be viewed as good news for the Miami quarterback. Fields transferred out of the Bulldogs’ program and into Ohio State. While the circumstances surrounding their transfers weren’t exactly the same, Martell could look to Fields’ case to help his own.
