Tate Martell: ‘NCAA doesn’t truly care about student-athletes’

Tate Martell, a four-star quarterback and Texas A&M commit in the Class of 2017, is already generating controversy despite having not played a single college snap.

Martell took to Twitter today and offered his own take on the NCAA’s decision to ban satellite camps and, needless to say, the Las Vegas product did not hold back in his opinion.


Martell is absolutely right. Satellite camps provide recruits the opportunity to see what certain programs outside of their region are like if they are unable to make a trip to campus, and today’s decision really just looked like pressure from the SEC after Michigan held satellites across the nation last summer and a week of spring practice at a known recruiting hotbed in Florida’s IMG Academy last month.

The worst of it is that though Martell shouldn’t suffer any major consequences as a result of his tweet, it doesn’t look good for a future student-athlete to be trashing the association responsible for his getting the opportunity to play Division I football.
