Ohio State appears to be on the shortlist for another transfer quarterback, and he's already made some waves in Buckeye news in the past.

Texas A&M quarterback Nick Starkel will enter the transfer portal and is considering Ohio State as a potential destination, according to Travis L. Brown of My Aggie Nation.

Starkel was a three-star prospect and the No. 21 pro style quarterback coming out of high school, and was recruited by Mike Yurcich at Oklahoma State out of high school. He leaves Texas A&M after three seasons and will be a graduate transfer, allowing him immediate eligibility at his next destination.

If you've heard that name before, it's likely due to an online spat between Starkel and former Ohio State quarterback and one-time Aggie commit Tate Martell after Starkel acquired and Tweeted a screenshot of a direct message conversation where Martell referred to him as "ass my dude."

Starkel's Tweet, which has since been deleted, was posted shortly after Martell decommitted from Texas A&M.

If he were to come to Ohio State, Starkel would add much needed depth to the quarterback position.

With the departure of Dwayne Haskins, Martell's transfer and Dwan Mathis' flip to Georgia, Ohio State currently has just three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster, and Justin Fields has not yet been granted eligibility for the 2019 season.
