Tate Martell is set to move on from the Ohio State Buckeyes. The former four-star recruit and dual-threat quarterback will be one of the most highly sought after transfers on the market, and it looks like he is already closing in on his potential destination.
According to a report, Martell is down to three schools.
247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong reports that Martell is considering West Virginia, Miami and Louisville.
Martell is alleged to be on a visit to Miami today, Monday, January 14.

The report states:
Martell is expected to visit all three this week beginning with West Virginia on Sunday. Per Eersports insider Chris Anderson, Martell will head to Miami on Monday. 247Sports has been told the Louisville visit will be Wednesday and Thursday. Martell is expected to make a final decision the following week. Martell’s name was entered in the transfer portal last Thursday shortly after former five-star quarterback Justin Fields announced he’d be transferring to Ohio State. The industry-generated 247Sports Composite billed Martell as the nation’s No. 2 dual-threat passer in the 2017 recruiting class.
Martell spent the 2018 college football season as the primary backup to starting signal-caller Dwayne Haskins. With Haskins moving on, it was believed that Martell would finally have his time to shine. That all changed when Fields signed with the Buckeyes.
Martell, a former four-star recruit, has spent two years at Ohio State and thrown for 269 yards and one touchdown while adding 128 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
