When news broke out last January 14 of Tate Martell transfer to the Miami Hurricanes from Ohio State University Buckeyes, the college football world was once again on the headlines of every sports section of major newspapers. His decision to transfer to Miami came out a couple of days after the Buckeyes put Justin Fields in their roster as the starting quarterback. Fields, who played for Georgia Bulldogs the previous year, was rated as the number 3 in the recruiting rankings coming after Vince Young and Trevor Lawrence. Being the backup quarterback of Jake Fromm for the Bulldogs last year, Justin fields entered the NCAA Transfer Portal and announced his decision to transfer to Ohio State on January 4.

Many college football fans are criticizing Martell for his decision to leave Ohio State and transferring to Miami rather than facing the challenge and fight for the starting quarterback spot for the upcoming season. Some news agency wrote that moving made Martell look weak, stating that he already had a year playing under new OSU head coach Ryan Day, making him already familiar with the system of play of the team that gives him an upper hand against Fields.

Last season proved to be a good year for Tate Martell where he completed 23 out of 28 attempted passes for 269 yards including one touchdown within six appearances as the Buckeye’s backup quarterback to Dwayne Haskins. Even after completely redshirting his freshman year when the quarterback position still had a handful of players like four-year veteran J.T. Barrett, Dwayne Haskins, and Joe Burrow. With OSU former head coach Urban Meyer as the one who recruited Tate Martell now gone, some fans are speculating that the new head coach Ryan Day, likes Fields more than Martell, which they think triggered Martell’s decision to switch schools.
