Jae'Sean Tate was one of several impressive prospects taking part in an open gym at Columbus' Walnut Ridge High School on Wednesday. Plus see who The Oracle chose to land 4-star TE Mike Gesicki.
Regarded by many as the top basketball player in the state of Ohio, Jae'Sean Tate consistently plays like it. With a motor that never stops, and an everlasting urge to attack the basket, Tate is one of several weapons Thad Matta has coming in for the class of 2014. Tate, a 6'4 small forward from nearby Pickerington High School Central, is a consensus four-star prospect, and has Buckeye basketball blood running through him. Tate's father, Jermaine, lettered with Ohio State in 1996, before moving on to the University of Cincinnati for his final two seasons of college basketball.
On Wednesday afternoon, Tate's high school team joined the Columbus City-League's Walnut Ridge for an open gym session, and the Ohio State commit did not disappoint. Unstoppable on the drive, the 6'4 forward was mightily efficient around the basket, scoring on the majority of his attempts. While his perimeter shooting is still a work in progress, Tate knocked down a pair of threes, each coming off the dribble. Noted for his aggressiveness on the glass, Tate went to work on the boards, snatching rebounds and quickly getting down floor for transition opportunities.
Which Team in 5-Star DE Myles Garrett's Top 5 Would Be Best Fit? (bleacher report)
Dominant defensive end Myles Garrett remains one of the most coveted uncommitted members of the 2014 recruiting class. The James Martin High School (Arlington, Texas) standout revealed he may be moving toward a decision by unveiling his favorite college football suitors to Scout.com writer Erin Hartigan.
Garrett, listed as the nation's No. 2 weak-side defensive end recruit and No. 16 overall prospect in 247Sports composite rankings, is focused on five schools from four different conferences. Texas A&M, Alabama, Florida State, TCU and Ohio State are in the mix, he told Hartigan.
The 6'4", 240-pound 5-star prospect picked that cluster of teams from a vast collection of scholarship offers. Other options included Arkansas, LSU, Michigan, Miami and Texas.
Eric Glover-Williams (Canton, Ohio/McKinley) knows all about the fact Ohio State has a chance to notch win No. 850 this season. He knows the Buckeyes are the favorite to win their 35th Big Ten title and, if the cards fall right, he knows an eighth national championship isn’t out of the question.
The ESPN Junior 300 athlete took pause after an improbable 13-10 win where his squad converted a fake field goal to win on the last play of the game, to look at Ohio State past, present and future.
Named the face of the 2015 recruiting class, the 29th-ranked junior in the nation pointed to the big numbers Ohio State has put up in the last 100 years and alluded to the fact it has had 78 consensus All-Americans and 369 first-team All-Big Ten picks as a big draw to become a Buckeye.
“You know you’re going to a place that always has a winning tradition and one that is known for winning championships and being in the big game,” Glover-Williams said. “They’re almost always great.”
