OT: Tate Martell commitment

Tate Martell has committed to Texas A&M. We were in his top 5 and considered a likely option by most. Any thoughts on why he didn't commit? Is it just because Harbaugh seems to prefer a pro style type guy?

He bolted in the middle of camp (after enrolling early) because the other QB in his recruiting class (Sam Darnold) is significantly better so far and he didn't want to be on a depth chart behind him and a sophomore who was the #1 QB in his class (Max Browne).

No one at SC is upset about him leaving.

Martell playing at USC would be a big departure from their normal QB prototype. Martell is about 5'11", 180 lbs. He seems like a Johnny Manziel clone, so I think he's a good fit there at TAMU. I also didn't see him as a fit at Michigan.
