Perhaps what's most interesting about seeing Martell in the transfer portal is the 20-year-old's real first name.
Tate is apparently a nickname for his real name, Tathan. This was discovered after viewing his name in the transfer portal online.
Whether Martell transfers or not, the biggest revelation here is that his actual name is Tathan? https://t.co/rxpot71paA— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) January 10, 2019
Tathan Martell. Now that is a name.
With a name like that, it's no wonder that Martell has had commitment issues in the past. The quarterback initially committed to both Washington and Texas A&M before reversing his commitment from both programs and joining Ohio State.
Can confirm that Tate Martell is now in the NCAA transfer portal. He’ll begin to explore options outside of Ohio State — believe Miami and West Virginia are two schools that are worth watching.— Jeremy Birmingham (@Birm) January 10, 2019
