then add AP and college credit from high school..and it makes sense.
Joe Burrow already showed how it's done... he *could* have competed @OSU in spring...and then transferred before summer to workout/win the team @ miami with 3 years eligibility if things dont work out in columbus
after spring he could also accurately scout the competition.
it is a huge gamble for Tate not staying to graduate ...and potentially a critical error.
imo, Tate martell was advised poorly....and life decisions seemed to have been made emotionally....
this may cost him a football career, unfortunately.
that freshman QB in miami is a bigtime arm talent. he redshirted not because he isnt good....but because he was physically immature (not ready) as a true freshman. the kid as 3 years and done type potential, imo.
i'm thinking the family didnt even know about Jarren Williams....nor that other phyiscally immature kid at OSU that would eventually develop into the NFL draft's QB1.
even if Tate is eligible in the fall.. there would be no surprise for manny to allow them to compete well into the season.
Yes, you want to get the reps in spring ball... but if tate's waiver is denied(odds are not great for tate)... he will watch a now more physically "ready" Jarren Williams win the job...get all the reps..gain that experience...and holds onto QB1 until the NFL comes calling.
..then we'll watch tate leave coral gables for a CFL tryout after a year.
his legacy being the kid from vegas that turned himself into a meme (ie striking out twice)
