Top-ranked QB Tate Martell releases top six schools

Just about a month ago, Tate Martell added to the Texas A&M Aggies’ woes when he decided to decommit and reopen his recruitment for the 2017 season. It looks like he could be getting close to his decision as he released his final six schools on Friday.

Martell has cut his decision down to just six schools and his list is pretty loaded. His final six schools are Cal, Colorado, Ohio State, UCLA, USC, and West Virginia.

Right now, Tate Martell has been showing some major interest in Ohio State, who he visited just months before decommitting from Texas A&M. However, any one of his six schools would be an interesting fit for him.

USC is in a pretty weird situation with their quarterbacks right now after Cody Kessler graduated and moved on to the NFL. Colorado and Cal will both seemingly lose their top quarterbacks after the 2016 season.

For UCLA, Martell and Josh Rosen battling for the starting job would be fun to watch, but the former could take a redshirt his first year and replace him in 2018. At West Virginia, Will Grier seems to be the next man up after Skyler Howard, but this could also create an interesting dynamic for the Mountaineers as well.
