Glad you said that Brutus0717.  He played a major role in landing the top-ranked, dual threat QB in the country and not a peep of congrats until 80+ comments into this article.  The first bad playcall we see this season and 100's of 11Ws will post "Fire Beck!"

ELJTSA76's picture

Wow, what a nice surprise.  Just watched his film (linked above) for the first time, and I am impressed overall.  There is a lot to like, and he still has a full year of HS ball remaining.  He has a very good arm - an NFL arm with more strength training . . . hell, he has as good an arm right now as some back up QBs in the league.  It is also nice to see good accuracy - something we have not had consistently at the QB position aside from Guiton and Barrett.  And Martell has very nice speed; I am guessing that the Gaels played some really good HS competition en route to the last two USA Today national championships (rankings).  So none of these positives are likely an aberration.  The only thing I see as a question mark - possibly - is reading defenses.  I say that because his receivers are always open.  Martell rarely had to come off of his first option because it was just a matter of allowing them time to separate, if they were not open from go.  He just stared down that first option until the window presented itself.  Now that is not necessarily a knock on the kid - he has some talented teammates.  No apologies necessary.  But I think those possible question marks are things that can be learned and/or corrected as needed through coaching and study.  I am excited about this one.

HS

Martell's abilities leave me comparing him to a certain Heisman-winning QB from Texas A&M a few years back. And I mean that in a complimentary way.

HS
Macke777's picture

Very true. I think Clark is more than willing to compete. Sibley might walk or he might accept the challenge as well. Regardless, I wish them both the absolute best in life. Competition breeds the best. If you want to play in the NFL, you have to beat out good college players and even better NFL players. It's just a fact of life. They all will be better off in the long run by starting the competition now, instead of choosing the path of least resistance. Go Buckeyes!!!!!!!

Well, you can never have too much talent on the roster.  Things will work out, but I am worried when he is listed at 5-10, because in sports, being listed at 5-10 means you're really 5-8-1/2 ...

Watching his highlight film, I gotta ask:  Does Nike sponsor his school? I saw at least 6 or 7 different uniforms, and this was all from one year!

with the little scraggly beard, he looks a little like Johnny Manzell, no?

Well, Flutie did all right with 5-9.  Welcome to the Buckeyes, Mr. Martell!

You go ahead and worry over nothing. People said the same shit about Russell Wilson and he tore it up at every level just like Tater! Like I said before, Tater's gonna be the best Qb we've ever had.He can't help it, he's a winner!

Combine this with the prospect of the Texas recruits and Tim Beck will deserve huge props. 

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

Reminds me of Drew Brees at Purdue... he was a bad man.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I was thinking a little more Shaun King, but that's probably just my bias. No doubt there are more recent QBs with a similar skill set. And Martell is still in HS for another year too!

Congrats. You got your guy. Between Martell and Clark, you'll be fine at QB. Meyer is a great recruiter, and gets great athletes who fit what he wants to do with the spread. The rich get richer. 

Michigan is certainly happy with Dylan McCaffrey at QB. Maybe in three or four years we'll get to see who is better, head to head.

It'll be interesting to see your class fill out. You've got 14, and that leaves about 6 spaces left. Plus one if you cut Sibley loose. That leaves space for two WR (Lindsey, Grimes), 1 S (Okudah), 1 CB (Lamont Wade), 1 RB Cam Akers), 1 DE, 1 LB. With that kind of class, you'd have the highest average recruit ranking ever, and still be in it for the best class. Probably Ohio State would never lose a game again. :-) Luke Fickell could win as head coach with that kind of talent.

I'm new here (but then so is Martell), and so I'm not sure if he's been tagged with a new nickname yet, but let me be the first to roll out the obvious for the Buckeye's latest legend-in-the-making: OHIO TATE!

Er, of course, I meant to say, THE Ohio Tate!

I'd like to see martell put on weight and go to the wildcat with Clark at qb.

Nice to have some really good Buckeye news on what is an otherwise really shitty news day.

Thank you Eleven Warriors.

And thank you, Urban F Meyer.
