The Miami football program is set to land a major transfer. Late Tuesday night, January 16, the Hurricanes learned that former four-star quarterback Tate Martell is set to join the program. It’s a major get for new head coach’s Manny Diaz’s program.
Martell announced on social media that he planned to head to South Beach.
The dual-threat signal-caller wrote: “right back like we never left… I’M A HURRICANE!”

Martell will be joining former Bishop Gorman High School teammates Brevin Jordan, a tight end, and safety Bubba Bolden with the Hurricanes.
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.
