Nation's #1 QB Decommits from Texas A&M; Could UCLA Benefit?

May 5 -- Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman quarterback Tate Martell has opened up his commitment from Texas A&M. Could UCLA be there to pick up the pieces?

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 TideArizona State Sun DevilsArkansas Razorbacks, Auburn TigersCalifornia Golden BearsFlorida State SeminolesIllinois Fighting IlliniLouisville CardinalsLSU TigersMichigan WolverinesOhio State BuckeyesOklahoma State CowboysTexas A&M AggiesTexas Tech Red RaidersUCLA BruinsUSC TrojansUtah UtesWashington Huskies.

Schools Martell would like to see and/or offer: Arizona WildcatsBoise State BroncosDuke Blue DevilsHawaii WarriorsHouston CougarsMiami (Fl) HurricanesNebraska CornhuskersNorth Carolina Tar HeelsOregon DucksPenn State Nittany LionsSouth Carolina GamecocksTennessee VolunteersWest Virginia MountaineersWisconsin Badgers.

BRO Editor's Note:  There are rumors that Martell could unofficially visit UCLA this weekend.
