The Ohio State football team is hoping to get some good news on October 8 when four-star 2023 wide receiver Carnell Tate announces his commitment. All indications are that Tate is down to OSU and Notre Dame as the date nears, and we may have just gotten a peek at which way Tate is leaning.
In fact, Tate’s high school team, IMG Academy out of Bradenton, Florida, was up in Ohio at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium taking on Bishop Sycamore as a part of the Geico High School Football Kickoff. Tate did not disappoint.
The class of 2023’s No. 10 ranked wide receiver and 58th overall prospect according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings returned a punt 38-yards and tallied two touchdowns in the first half. One of those was a wrestling match against three defenders to get into the end zone. And while that’s all fine and good, it’s what Tate did after the fact that might have you smiling as an Ohio State fan.
Tate promptly got up from manhandling defenders to pay dirt and flashed an O-H to the crowd.
It wasn’t the only time Tate flashed an O-H either. He also did so heading off onto the sidelines at one point. Maybe he’s doing it because he’s in Ohio, or maybe there’s something to read into there. 247Sports currently has the Fighting Irish and Buckeyes as a toss-up with its Crystal Ball predictions.
Either way, we should find out on October 8.
