​After ​Tate Martell transferred from Ohio State to the University of Miami, the Buckeyes are now need of quarterback depth. Their solution could be departing ​Texas A&M quarterback Nick Starkel, who is considering the Scarlet and Gray among a number of programs as he prepares to transfer.

​​In addition to Ohio State, the player is also looking at Duke, SMU and Arizona. 


Starkel has been kept from regular playing time in College Station thanks to the productivity of incumbent starter Kellen Mond. While he has yet to make his transfer official, he did post a message on Twitter thanking the Aggies and their fans. He'll have to sit out the 2019 season per NCAA rules, but would be a redshirt junior with two years of eligibility starting the following year.

​​Starkel played in 11 games for Texas A&M from 2017-18. He completed 138 of 227 passes for 1,962 yards, throwing for 15 touchdowns and six interceptions. Assuming he ends up deciding to transfer to Ohio State, Starkel would have a chance to earn the starting quarterback job in time-- but he'll have to fend off the likes of Justin Fields, who notably left Georgia for Columbus earlier this month.
