While outside enjoying the warmer weather on Tuesday you might’ve missed out on some of the latest recruiting news surrounding the Ohio State Buckeyes. Don’t worry! Land-Grant Holy Land is here to help you get caught back up with things.
2023 to visit Columbus
This summer is sure setting up to be a busy one for Ryan Day and the Ohio State football squad. Playing host this June to a long list of top notch prospects, you can go ahead and add another highly sought after recruit to the checklist of future and potential Buckeyes heading to Columbus to see the program for themselves.
Announcing his plans to visit the Ohio State University just days after earning his scholarship offer from the Buckeyes, four-star rated class of 2023 wide receiver Carnell Tate will make the trek from his Chicago area home to check out what the Buckeyes are putting together June 8-9.
I will be at Ohio State June 8th & 9th. #GoBuckeyes ⭕️— Carnell Tate ¹⁷ (@carnelltate_) April 27, 2021
You might’ve heard of where Carnell now calls home. Tate transferred to powerhouse prep program IMG Academy (FL) this winter after putting together a fantastic year on the field during his freshman season at Marist High School (IL). Seeing time halfway through his freshman campaign, Tate hauled in 28 receptions for 444 yards, and five touchdowns to help his team make a deep run in the Illinois state playoffs in 2019.
Holding well over 25 scholarship offers at the moment, Tate, the seventh wide receiver, and 47th overall prospect in the entire class of 2023, per the 247Sports Composite Rankings, picks up new interest almost daily. Putting together a list of some of the best to do it on the college level, Ohio State is up against the likes of Florida State, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, LSU, Texas and many others for the 6-foot-2, 185-pound playmaker.
Want to see what caught Ryan Day, Brian Hartline, and the Buckeyes attention? Check out what Carnell Tate could potentially bring to the OSU program with these highlights of him in action on the field:
- On Tuesday night, the Buckeyes received a Crystal Ball to land Tennessee transfer linebacker Henry To’o To’o. The prediction came from none other than Bill Kurelic, 247Sports’ Ohio State insider. To’o To’o is a former high four-star prospect, and was the No. 3 OLB and the No. 44 player overall in the 2019 class. He was dominant in his first two seasons with the Volunteers, registering 140 total tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and an interception in his time in Knoxville. There has seemingly been momentum growing between Ohio State and the transfer linebacker for quite some time, and his addition would go a long way in offsetting the blow felt by the decommitment of Dasan McCullough.
