Washington Huskies successfully recruit eighth-grade QB
The Washington Huskies really have invested in their quarterback of the future. They have “unofficially” accepted a commitment from a eighth grade signal-caller named Tate Martell from San Diego, California.
Martell may not be able to sign his letter of intent until February of 2017, but he has already made great strides working with QB coach Steve Clarkson.
The Huskies extended an offer to Martell three weeks ago according to Sports Illustrated.
“This wasn’t a knee-jerk reaction to an offer,” Clarkson said of Martell. “After getting over the initial shock of it and talking about it at length, he decided to commit today. It’s a chance to go to school where one of his idols [Jake Locker] played.”
