Chicago (Ill.) IMG Academy four-star wide receiver Carnell Tate is heading back to Columbus this weekend. The Ohio State commit announced Thursday that he will be visiting the Buckeyes for their game against Wisconsin on Saturday night.
Tate committed to Ohio State on June 20. He is currently one of three top-10 wide receivers in the Buckeyes’ 2023 recruiting class alongside Miami Gardens (Fla.) American Heritage five-star Brandon Inniss and Rolesville (N.C.) four-star Noah Rogers.
The 6-foot-2, 178 pound wideout is the No. 37 overall prospect and No. 6 wide receiver in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 8 player in Florida.
This trip will mark Tate’s seventh visit to the Buckeyes. He is taking his official visit to the program on Oct. 21 for Ohio State’s game against Iowa.
The four-star wideout won’t be the only high-profile visitor inside Ohio Stadium this weekend. Inniss will be on hand alongside Tampa (Fla.) Berkeley Prep five-star EDGE Keon Keeley. The top-15 prospect is making his second trip to Columbus since the Buckeyes’ season-opening win against Notre Dame on Sept. 3.
Tate has an On3 NIL Valuation of $233K. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
Carnell Tate On3 Scouting Summary
The following is the On3 Scouting Summary for Carnell Tate:
“Well-rounded receiver with technical savvy and large catch radius. Has very long arms and big hands. Highly coordinated with the ability to track, adjust and high-point the football in contested situations. Has shown some encouraging route-running skills. Doubles as a dangerous return man due to his change of direction and open-field vision. A good athlete with play speed, though not quite as fast as some of his peers in a combine setting.”
