Tate Martell committed to Texas A&M on Aug. 20, 2015. That was only 245 days ago to be precise, but it’s an eternity in the fluid world of recruiting.
However, Martell — a five-star quarterback prospect out of Bishop Gorman High School (Las Vegas) and the first pledge in the Aggies’ Class of 2017 — recently made an announcement that might worry A&M’s fans. He said he’s going to take a hard look at other schools and take multiple official visits before next February’s National Signing Day.
Well, Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff may also be browsing for other quarterback options. The school offered three-star recruit Jack Sears on Wednesday, according to Brian Perroni of GigEm247. Sears is rated the No. 17 pro-style passer in the 2017 class.
It will be interesting to see how this saga plays out over the summer, and which schools Martell chooses to visit in the fall. Not long ago, he caused an uproar in College Station when he visited Ohio State. Expect a boatload of powerhouse programs to clamor for the nation’s No. 1 dual-threat quarterback prospect.
