(Photo by Joe Scarnici/Getty Images)Everyone is saying the same thing about Miami’s new quarterback, Tate Martell, following the NCAA’s decision on Justin Fields.Ohio State’s new quarterback, who transferred into the Buckeyes’ program from Georgia, has been ruled immediately eligible. He’ll be able to play for OSU in 2019.What does this mean for Martell?We’ll see, but the Hurricanes’ transfer quarterback is applying for the same waiver that Fields did.Many believe the NCAA should grant Martell immediate eligibility like it did for Fields.“Justin Fields transferred because he couldn’t win the starting job.

Anyone who thinks anything else is in la-la land,” Rivals.com’s Mike Farrell tweeted.Justin Fields transferred because he couldn’t win the starting job.
