Former Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell is now working out at wide receiver for the Miami Hurricanes, according to reports.

Miami coach Manny Diaz announced this week that redshirt freshman Jarren Williams, a Central Gwinnett grad, won the starting job, leaving the Buckeyes transfer to battle with sophomore N’Kosi Perry for the backup spot.

Martell was a four-star recruit from powerhouse Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas and was ranked by the 247Sports composite as the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the nation.

He redshirted at Ohio State in 2017 and sat behind Dwayne Haskins in 2018, appearing in three games. He completed 23 of 28 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown and added two scores on the ground.

Georgia quarterback Justin Fields transferred to Ohio State over the winter, prompting Martell to transfer to Miami. The NCAA granted immediate eligibility to both players.

Haskins declared for the NFL draft and was a first-round selection of the Washington Redskins.

Miami opens the season next Saturday night against No. 8 Florida at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
