Since committing to attend Ohio State, Tate Martell has made a point to express his adoration for his school-to-be. That excitement at becoming a Buckeye must have hit a fever pitch this weekend, as the Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas, NV) senior quarterback and other fellow recruits – both committed and uncommitted – were in Columbus Saturday night to see Ohio State rock Nebraska, 62-3.
Alongside Martell were fellow Bishop Gorman teammates Bubba Bolden , a four-star safety, and four-star wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey. Five-star wide receiver recruit Trevon Grimes also was in attendance.
In a sense, Martell has been the Buckeyes’ most powerful recruiting tool. First, he possibly helped convince Lindsay and Grimes to join him at Ohio State. At least he had a hand in the process. Then, earlier in the season, Martell was openly pushing for Bolden to join him at Ohio State. This weekend at least, Bolden did.
Accoding to The Spun, Ohio State’s 2017 recruiting class is in good shape as the Buckeyes currently have the No. 1 class in the country on 247Sports. Ohio State has 17 players committed, five of whom are five-star prospects.
Never one to hold back on showing his love for his future school, it is no surprise then that one of Ohio State’s most valuable recruits continues to remain one of its most valuable recruiters.
