Tate Martelli has once again entered the transfer protocol. According to a report from Josh Poloha of WFNY in Cleveland, the former Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell will be transferring to UNLV for this upcoming season.
Martell was the 39th best player in the country in 2017 according to Rivals.com. Originally committed to Ohio State, a lack of playing time led the dual-threat quarterback into entering the transfer protocol after his freshman year. He chose to go to the Miami Hurricanes. Once he got there, the competition was tough and Martell once again failed to carve out a role. With two years of eligibility remaining, Martell has decided he will be coming back home to play for UNLV.
Martell’s role with UNLV is going to be interesting, as he will be competing at a position that already featured competition from three quarterbacks, including sophomore Doug Brumfield, a junior transfer from TCU in Justin Rogers, and true freshman Cameron Friel.
If Martell isn’t able to win the quarterback position, some have speculated he could also play wide receiver, something he tried while with the Hurricanes. Either way, for Martell, transferring to UNLV is a chance for him to go home and finally make something of a college career. And if there is one person who can help get the most out of Tate, it’s Coach Arroyo, who coached one of the NFL’s best young quarterbacks at Oregon, Justin Herbert.
