2014 forward Jae'Sean Tate commits to Ohio State

Jae'Sean Tate is the newest Buckeye.

Thad Matta keeps the good times rolling by landing a talented small forward from the class of 2014.

Thad Matta's momentum evidently isn't exclusive to on the court. Ohio State's basketball coach landed his second high profile commitment of the week securing the verbal services of Jae'Sean Tate, a 6'5' 200 pound small forward from Pickerington, Ohio. Tate, who plays for All-Ohio Red on the AAU circuit and also suits up for Pickerington-Central gives Ohio State yet another four star basketball player for the 2014 class. Scout's Brian Snow had the details:

Hearing Jae'Sean Tate has pledged to Ohio St, he now confirms

This not even 24 hours after the verbal commitment of fellow class of 2014 forward, Keita Bates-Diop. Tate also had offers from Dayton, Iowa, Michigan, Purdue, and Xavier. The scouting report on him is that he's great on the glass for someone of his size but isn't as good of a perimeter shooter as ideally you'd like from a short forward at the college level. There's some thinking that he could grow into a power forward yet (he's got an extremely tall father, evidently), but if he continues in the gym working on his outside game, he could yet become an effective weapon for the 2014-15 Buckeyes at the 3.
