One thing about early commitments are that teams feel comfortable getting a recruit locked down before the rush of recruiting season later in the year.
The bad thing? You don’t have all of those early commits “locked down”.
That appears to be the case for Texas A&M and five-star quarterback recruit Tate Martell. Though he’s committed to A&M, Martell recently visited Ohio State, with the early reports showing that he enjoyed the visit.
Martell had been considering Alabama, USC, Michigan, and Washington before committing to the Aggies back in August. Martell is rated the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the 2017 recruiting class.
This would be a huge blow to Texas A&M, as they would be losing yet another five-star recruit at quarterback. Ohio State is already the leading everyone in 2017 recruiting by a mile right now. One of Martell’s high school teammates is one of those commitments for the Buckeyes, so it will certainly be entertaining to see how his recruitment plays out.
