When I wrote the recruiting post about Keita Bates-Diop a few days ago I was hoping it would be a domino effect and Coach Matta would finally get over this recruiting hump he has been struggling against. I however had no idea it would be so soon and with such a highly ranked and important recruit. This newest recruit is a local home grown product but one that was getting national interest and most importantly that TTUN was heavily chasing much like they were with Keita Bates-Diop. Two recruiting victories in the span of a few days on BEAT MICHIGAN week is ever so sweet. Here is the second commit in the 2014 recruiting class for Ohio State.
Jae’Sean Tate is a 6’5″ 200 lbs 4 star Small Forward from Pickerington, Ohio. Jae’Sean is one of those rare talents that you don’t see very often especially coming out of Central Ohio the best former player to compare him with is Michael Redd. He has a smooth jumpshot and also is able to make his way to the basket at ease but can also find his own shot when needed. ESPN ranks him the 43rd best player in the 2014 class and the no 1 player in Ohio. Rivals ranks him as a four star currently. Scouts ranks him as the 14th best SF in the class. 247sports composite ranks has him as the 44th best player and no 1 overall in Ohio. Below you can see his highlight reel.
