Tate Martell did not start the season opener but the 2017 quarterback finished with three touchdown passes and rushed for more than 100 yards as Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman pounded Anaheim (Calif.) Servite this past weekend.
No doubt it was a huge opening performance for Martell, who has been committed to Washington since March 2013.
The 2017 prospect transferred from Poway, Calif., to powerhouse Bishop Gorman for his sophomore season and so far it's been great.
"I just go out there and do what I can and try to help the team," Martell said. "When I get my chances I just try to go out there and do my thing.
"All the teammates have made it really smooth for me. Everybody has been really supportive and it's been really easy actually. It was kind of hard in the beginning with the whole moving process, not the team or anything, but the family part of it was the hardest part and it just all worked out and I'm feeling good right now."
After his outstanding performance this past weekend, Martell could definitely receive a lot more recruiting attention.
The 2017 quarterback said a few Pac-12 schools have reached out but he definitely plans to stick with his Washington pledge.
"I've been up there," Martell said. "I haven't been up there since last year but I plan on staying committed to Washington completely. I'm not changing my commitment and I'm happy with where I'm at.
"It's the same schools since I was younger. It's basically ASU, USC, UCLA and all of them. That's what it's been so far.
"If it heats up, I'm staying committed to Washington. I'll look at the offers and I'll consider some of them but I'm happy with Washington. I like coach Chris Petersen and coach (Jonathan) Smith, the quarterbacks coach, and they're really cool. I went up to camp this summer and I'm happy with where they're at."
