That’s major news for the Buckeyes, who already have a commitment from four-star pro-style quarterback Danny Clark. Martell is the No. 33 overall in 2017 and is the third-highest rated player in the Buckeyes’ No. 1 class, according to 247sports.
A long-time Texas A&M commitment, Martell made national headlines when he opened up his commitment in May. His de-commitment led to a string of tweets from an Aggie assistant, which led to multiple recruits opening up their commitments. That came on the heels of a meeting with the Buckeye coaching staff after it flew out to Las Vegas to meet with him.
The Bishop Gorman product had narrowed it down to five, with Cal, UCLA, USC and Colorado among his choices. He unofficially visited Columbus over the weekend, which obviously went well.
The Buckeye coaching staff already shared their excitement:
