Report: 14-year-old QB commits to Huskies

ESPN.com reported 14-year-old quarterback Tate Martell committed to play football at Washington.

According to ESPN.com, Martell received a scholarship offer from the Huskies three weeks ago. The soon-to-be eighth-grade quarterback committed to coach Steve Sarkisian on Wednesday, Martell’s father, Al, confirmed to ESPN.com.

According to ESPN.com, schools are not able to offer a written scholarship until Sept. 1 of a prospect’s senior season, according to NCAA rules. Martell won’t be able to sign a national letter of intent until Feb. 1, 2017.
