Tate Martell reportedly taking official visit with West Virginia
West Virginia is one of the the schools that has been mentioned as a possible destination for soon-to-be transfer quarterback Tate Martell, and it would appear there is mutual interest between the two sides.
Schuyler Callihan of DubV Nation reports that Martell was in Morgantown on Sunday taking an official visit with the Mountaineers. West Virginia could be a fit for Martell with quarterback Will Grier leaving for the NFL Draft, especially if Martell is somehow able to obtain an eligibility waiver to play immediately.
Martell entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal last week, which means teams are free to contact him about the possibility of joining their program. While it does not necessarily mean he will transfer from Ohio State, Martell’s social media activity indicated he is finished with the Buckeyes.
It looked like Martell was finally going to get a chance to start at Ohio State in 2019 with Dwayne Haskins turning pro, but Georgia quarterback Justin Fields is transferring to Columbus. Martell originally said he would not leave Ohio State for an incoming player who has not been with the program, but the former five-star recruit obviously changed his mind.
