what is best for my future, I have
decided to reopen my recruiting
The 2017 Las Vegas (Nevada) Bishop Gorman dual threat quarterback is considered one of the possible number one prospects at the position. At 5'11 and 205 pounds, Martell committed early to the Aggies. Spavital was the offensive coordinator and was Martell's primary recruiter to the Aggies, but he was not retained this offseason and moved onto Cal.
The coach Tate really connected well with at A&M, Coach Spavital, is now at #Cal, should be a very interesting recruitment moving forward— Greg Biggins (@GregBiggins) May 5, 2016
It's unclear where Martell would want to go next, but you have to figure Cal is somewhere in the mix. Ohio State and USC have been getting some buzz, but is it possible that the Bears could get in there thanks to the Spavital connection.
Also, some odd tweets from a Texas A&M coach.
