The No. 1 nationally ranked dual-threat quarterback making a summer visit to Boulder

The list for high school standout Tate Martell keeps getting shorter.

After decommitting from Washington and Texas A&M, the top rated quarterback recruit is looking for his college home and Colorado remains on the short list of possible schools where he could land.

Out of the twenty-five offers Martell has received, UCLA, Ohio State, USC and CU are the front-runners that have peaked his interest, according to Rivals.com. Multiple QB camps, a second trip to the Buckeye state along with a west coast swing and coming to Boulder is on the agenda for the senior this summer.

At 5'11" and 203 pounds, the dual-threat quarterback continues to impress on the field with Bishop Gorham HS (Las Vegas, NV), USA Today's No. 1 nationally ranked team. Martell has thrown for 5,145 yards, 72 touchdowns and 8 interceptions while leading his team to an undefeated 30-0 record over the past two seasons. The numbers speak for themselves and are quite impressive.

Colorado's pursuit of Martell remains persistent after an official offer was made last month. The top rated prospect would be the biggest recruit of Mike MacIntyre's tenure and a huge step forward for the program.

Here's Martell's highlight tape from last season and it's clear to see why he's the best dual-threat QB of the 2017 class.
