Is he going to hit a growth spurt soon? Anybody know the team doctor out at Bishop Gorman?
Your question really warrants its own thread.

I'd never heard of this, looked it up to find the following writeup:
The kid's a competitor, but raised my eyebrow at a couple of things mentioned in the article...things that Martell did (said) that I doubt would fly in Columbus.
I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...
At least he knows...
“I mean there’s stuff I do that’s stupid. That’s straight up what it is,” Martell says in a rare moment of onscreen humility. “Like, I really can’t have bad stuff going out, ’cause Coach (Urban) Meyer, when I get to Ohio State, won’t play that.”
Yep, I missed that at first skim, thanks for pointing out.
And It sounds as though Martell is indeed keeping his head down and putting in the work, much to UFM's praise.
That is pretty much my take through the first four episodes. In reference to the comments he makes at times...My first thought UFM will shut that down in a nano second. Boy can ball though make no mistake.

I just started watching when my flight was delays @ LAX. Really entertaining so far.
What's the delays for?
I've only seen a couple episodes but you tell he has a bit of an ego and a sense of entitlement, but how could he not? He has been on top of the mountain for a few years and plays for a team that wins 70-0 on a regular basis, on top of living in Las Vegas, being a good looking dude, and growing up in a well off family. He does seem like a hard worker though and seems smart enough to not let his ego get in the way of reality for the most part. It will be interesting to see how he deals with this QB room going forward if he doesn't earn the starting job. I've felt all along that either he or Haskins will end up transferring, depending on the depth chart next year.
a good looking dude
Glad someone agrees w me
You can see the series on youtube. It is on go90's channel.
Here is episode 1.
Good series. Also, if you haven't yet seen "Last Chance U" on Netflix, I would highly recommend it. It's very entertaining and well put together.
I enjoyed it. Looking forward to season 2. Prepare to hear copious amounts of the f-word.

Awesome series-watched all 4. Jake Fromm is going to be very good for UGA. Love Tate's cockiness.
I've watched the series. Now, I will say that Tate is one cocky m'fer but he can back it up. Before Gorman played Cedar Hill Tate said something to the tune of "they only hate me because they know I'm good". I loved this quote because Tate is showing that he does know he's good but he's gonna back it up. He's gonna be a special one when he gets his shot at QB1.

The season finale aired yesterday and there was a great scene with Tim Beck visiting the Martell family. Say what you will about Beck but he was a great recruiter and it is evidenced in this scene. He goes on to discuss how if you are not mentally tough then coach Mick will break you. He said, "you need to be mentally tough so you can beat Michigan when it is 4th and 1" Pretty cool insight especially due to this years game against TTUN

Martell and the hair spray for the slam dunk!!! Dude, you rock...

This is commonl with highly ranked recruits though. You just rarely see them in that candid of an environment.
