The #1 dual-threat quarterback in the country is no longer committed to Texas A&M as Tate Martell (Bishop Gorman HS/Las Vegas, NV) announced on Twitter Wednesday night that he would be opening up his recruitment.

According to Scout.com, Martell is the #1 player in Nevada and the #12 overall player in the nation. Up to this point he has received 22 offers, but it seems that only five remain.

Texas A&M could still be in it but now has to match-up in recruiting against Cal, Ohio State, Oregon and, that’s right, UCLA.

Bruin Report Online

stated earlier this week, “Now we’re not saying Martell is on the verge of de-committing and we’re also not saying UCLA has suddenly become the team to beat for the 5-star quarterback. We are saying it’s something worth monitoring and if Martell decides to take one of his official visits to UCLA, the Bruins could have a chance if they decide to go all in on the gifted quarterback.”
