Ohio State is releasing a video profile of each Select '17 early enrollee every day until National Signing Day. Four-star quarterback and Gatorade National Player of the Year Tate Martell is the next on the docket.

Hailing from Las Vegas' Bishop Gorman, a budding Ohio State pipeline, Martell originally committed to Steve Sarkisian's Washington as a 14-year-old. After Sarkisian's departure, Martell flipped to Texas A&M.

However, turmoil struck College Station in 2015 with the Aggies losing five games and going 4-4 in SEC player. Tate decommitted from Texas A&M in May 2016 and committed to Ohio State a month later.

Tate says he's a "normal quarterback" in the sense he's pass-first, run-second... but he also cites his ability to extend plays.

Martell is not concerned with individual goals at Ohio State. "Normally, if the team is doing well the quarterback is doing well."

For those unfamiliar with Tate's powers, here's his high school highlight tape:
