Quarterback Tate Martell has announced he will be leaving Ohio State and going to the University of Miami.

Martell posted the announcement on his Twitter page shortly after midnight Wednesday.

In 2018, Martell played in six games, completing 23 passes for 269 and one touchdown. He also rushed for 128 yards and two touchdowns.

Last week it was reported that Martell had entered the NCAA transfer portal after the Buckeyes announced the transfer of Justin Fields from Georgia.

With Martell's departure, Ohio State has three quarterbacks on the roster: Fields, Matthew Baldwin and Chris Chugunov.

Ohio State and Fields are awaiting approval of a waiver from the NCAA which would allow him to play immediately without sitting out the 2019 season.
