Florida 2023 WR Tate reportedly close to decision: Is Notre Dame still an option?

·1 min read

The 2023 recruiting class for the Irish is viewed by most analysts as one of the best in the country. It is defensive heavy however, as most of the current commitments play on that side of the ball.

It is well known that Marcus Freeman is in pursuit of some very high-level prospects on that side of the ball, but just Texas receiver Braylon James can be considered elite out of the current crop of verbals. One of the biggest targets is Florida receiver Carnell Tate, who at one point prepped in Illinois thus the good relationship with the Irish.

However, according to a report from 247Sports Bill Kurelic (subscription required), it seems that Tate will be making a decision fairly soon and the Irish might be on the outside looking in. Kurelic’s sources tell him that it’s Tennessee that could be the biggest foe against perceived leader Ohio State for Tate’s commitment. He has yet to publicly announce any commitment intentions, but if the rumor is true Freeman has some work to do with Tate’s recruitment.
