Tate Martell has name in NCAA transfer portal, per reports

Is the current Buckeye on his way out of Columbus?

NCAA Football: Ohio State at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

With the coaching changes happening within the Ohio State Buckeyes football program, we could be in the beginning stages of seeing another transfer involving the scarlet and gray.

Instead of transferring into the program, a member of the team could be transferring out. On Thursday afternoon, it was reported by Lettermen Row's Jeremy Birmingham that quarterback Tate Martell has put his name into the NCAA transfer portal.

With the transferring of QB Justin Fields into the program, one could sense that something had to give within the Buckeye QB room. But, before the Rose Bowl, Martell reaffirmed his commitment to the program.

Does Martell adding his name to the transfer database mean he’s gone? Not necessarily. It means that teams are able to contact him. As Birmingham mentioned in his tweet, West Virginia and Miami are two teams to look at. West Virginia is losing QB Will Grier to the NFL, and The U will lose some depth at the signal-caller spot with Malik Rosier ending his redshirt senior season.

For now, though, Martell is still a Buckeye. We’ll have to wait and see how all this plays out.
