Five-star wide receiver Carnell Tate of IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., committed to Ohio State on Monday.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Tate is the nation’s No. 3 wide receiver and the 28th best prospect in the country in the Class of 2023, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
Tate chose the Buckeyes over LSU, Tennessee, Alabama and Arizona, among 37 offers.
“Coach (Brian) Hartline is what made Ohio State right for me,” Tate told 247Sports. “His development is very important to me. I know he would help develop me into a first-round pick and a great receiver.”
Landing Tate vaults Ohio State to No. 2 in the 247Sports’ composite team rankings for 2023.
