5-star QB commit defends Texas A&M coaches, hasn’t “lost faith in the program”
In light of ex-starter Kyle Allen revealing his transfer plans last week and Wednesday’s report that freshman incumbent Kyler Murray could be doing the same, Texas A&M finds itself in the midst of a simmering quarterback crisis.
So if there’s a silver lining for the school here, it’s that despite the immense uncertainty presently surrounding the position, the Aggies remain in good standing with their highly-touted passer of the future, 5-star commit Tate Martell.
On Wednesday night, Martell shared a lengthy message on Twitter addressing a number of topics, with the first and foremost being that he is “still 100 (percent) solid on Texas A&M.” He also made a point of emphasizing that coach Kevin Sumlin and offensive coordinator Jake Spavital “know what they are doing” and cited 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel as his main example.
Martell, the No.1 dual-threat quarterback for the Class of 2017, committed to the Aggies in August over 17 other major schools, including Alabama, Michigan and Ohio State.
