Oregon is now believed to be in the mix for five-star recruit Tate Martell, who initially committed to the Huskies as a 14-year-old in 2012.
The saga surrounding the recruitment of Tate Martell continues.
Martell, as a precocious quarterback, got national attention in 2012 when he made a verbal commitment to play for Washington. He was 14 at the time, 13 when Steve Sarkisian offered him his first scholarship, among the youngest players to ever pledge to a college football team.
He backed away from his commitment to UW after Sarkisian left for USC. Last August, Martell announced a verbal commitment to Texas A&M, but he backed away from that commitment on Wednesday night, saying he wanted to reopen his recruiting.
A dual-threat quarterback, Martell is ranked by Scout.com as the nation’s No. 1 QB for the Class of 2017. He has drawn comparisons to former Heisman winner Johnny Manziel.
