The top rated quarterback in the nation, Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman's Tate Martell has decided to open up his recruitment and de-commit from Texas A&M Aggies.
Last week, a handful of UCLA commits set out a series of tweets directed at the quarterback. Recruits recruiting other top recruits via twitter is nothing new but it started a question if there was anything going on between UCLA and Martell.
Additionally, a few weeks ago Martell announced that he will be taking all 5 of his allotted official visits this fall.
Tate Martell announced the commitment to Texas A&M Aggies last summer from a top five list consisting of Alabama, Michigan, Texas A&M, USC and Washington. Martell had previously been committed to Washington under Steve Sarkisian but backed off that pledge in early 2015. In Monday's announcement, the quarterback says he is taking his five official visits to "make sure that I'm choosing the perfect school for me".
While Martell did not list which five schools would get him on campus, he did list his current offers and schools he would like to receive offers from and potentially visit.
Offer List: Alabama Crimson Tide, Arizona State Sun Devils, Arkansas Razorbacks, Auburn Tigers, California Golden Bears, Florida State Seminoles, Illinois Fighting Illini, Louisville Cardinals, LSU Tigers, Michigan Wolverines, Ohio State Buckeyes, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Texas A&M Aggies, Texas Tech Red Raiders, UCLA Bruins, USC Trojans, Utah Utes, Washington Huskies.
Schools Martell would like to see and/or offer: Arizona Wildcats, Boise State Broncos, Duke Blue Devils, Hawaii Warriors, Houston Cougars, Miami (Fl) Hurricanes, Nebraska Cornhuskers, North Carolina Tar Heels, Oregon Ducks, Penn State Nittany Lions, South Carolina Gamecocks, Tennessee Volunteers, West Virginia Mountaineers, Wisconsin Badgers.
BRO Editor's Note: There are rumors that Martell could unofficially visit UCLA this weekend.
