Martell talks commitment status

There has been a coaching change at Washington but 2017 quarterback Tate Martell said his commitment to the Huskies still stands.
The Poway, Calif., standout who looked good Sunday at the Passing Down Elite 7on7 SoCal Regional has not talked with the new coaching staff there but his parents have and at this time he's remaining committed.
Martell picked Washington in March 2013.
"They called my parents and so did the athletic director and we're still committed to Washington but (USC coach Steve Sarkisian) is calling and he wants me, too," Martell said. "I'm staying committed to Washington so I'm not changing. I'm going to stay committed to Washington and see how it goes from there.
"During last season before (coach Chris Petersen and his staff) went to Washington they were coming to my games and stuff. They knew about me before they even got to Washington. My parents have talked to them, all the coaches. I haven't talked to them yet but my parents have."
Martell said many other programs are showing interest in him including USC, Arizona State, UCLA, Stanford, Florida State, Texas A&M and others.
Sarkisian was the coach Martell committed to when he was at Washington. It could get interesting if the Trojans continue pursuing the 2017 standout.
Texas A&M could also be a major factor. The Poway recruit wants to visit College Station this summer and said the offense definitely appeals to him.
"I might do the camp or not," Martell said. "I want to go see that school. Just Johnny Manziel and that offense, I play exactly like that, extending plays. If they keep running the same offense that's one school I'm really looking at."
