• @NCAAF The time is now for Miami's Tate Martell

    CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Tate Martell has been the next big thing since he got his first scholarship offer as an eighth grader. At the time, he could hardly believe his luck, astonished that 14-year-olds could get offers, let alone accept them.

    That offer from Washington put his entire football career into overdrive. In addition to continuing his work with quarterback guru Steve Clarkson (who has trained Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Leinart and many others), Martell moved from San Diego to Las Vegas to attend Bishop Gorman High to boost his prospects further, starred in a documentary about his recruitment and ultimately settled on attending Ohio State.
