Fighting for a ring, who did enough to pick up your vote this time around?

Another week, another Land-Grant Holy Land MVP for future Buckeye quarterback Tate Martell.

Leading his Bishop Gorman (NV) squad past Arbor View last Saturday evening, Martell accounted for 268 passing yards and five touchdowns to once again get the Gaels in the State title game.

Picking up 49% of your votes last week, Martell walked away with the MVP award over his soon-to-be Buckeye teammates Brendon White (17%), Wyatt Davis (16%), Shaun Wade (13%), and Haskell Garrett (5%).

Martell wasn’t the only Ohio State commit to help his team earn a shot a championship. Back at it this weekend, which Buckeye pledge did enough to grab your MVP vote?

The poll is now open. Let your voice be heard and vote:

Tate Martell

In the Nevada State Championship, Martell and Bishop Gorman rolled over a very solid Liberty High team.

In the 84-8 blowout win, Martell wasn’t needed much in the second half, but still put together some very solid numbers to lead the Gaels to their 54th straight win and eighth consecutive state title. Completing 7 of 8 passing attempts, the U.S. Army All-American accounted for 139 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for another 81 yards and three scores on the ground in the big win.

Haskell Garrett

Like Martell, the Gaels defense played a massive part in Bishop Gorman picking up another state title victory on Saturday.

Up front, the future Buckeye defensive tackle showed why he’s considered one of the top lineman in 2017 class. Fighting off double teams most of the night, Garrett ended the game against Liberty with 5 total tackles including two for a loss.

Wyatt Davis

Davis and St. John Bosco (CA) came to play on Friday night.

After falling to Mater Dei (CA) in championship game the last two season, St. John Bosco bounced back to get the win over the Monarchs, 42-28.

Playing guard instead of tackle for Bosco, Davis helped block the Braves offense to around 300 rushing yards and three touchdowns on the ground in the runaway victory.

Baron Browning

Nearly 24 hours after announcing his verbal commitment to Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes, five-star outside linebacker Baron Browning was back on the field trying to get his Kennedale (TX) squad one step closer to a ring.

Taking on Van High, Browning and Kennedale battled back from down 14 to pick up the win over the Vandals, 34-28 for a trip to the state semifinals.

Picking off a Van High pass in the first half, Browning rumbled 25 yards to the endzone for a Kennedale score to only have the touchdown neglected due to a clip in the back during the return.

After his near touchdown, the latest Buckeye pledge took a little time out to show some love to members of Buckeye Nation.

Blake Haubeil

The future Buckeye kicker didn’t score a touchdown, but still put some points up on the board for Canisius (NY) on Sunday afternoon against Cardinal Hayes.

One of the senior leaders for Canisius, Haubeil didn’t have his best game of the season. The three-star prospect connected on all six of his extra points, but missed a 48 yard field goal, and had 47 yarder blocked to help switch the momentum to Cardinal Hayes.

While the block led to a Cardinal Hayes scoring drive that pushed them in front, the Crusaders bounced back in the final minutes of the game to win the New York State Catholic Final, 50-44.
