Default Re: 2015 - Auden Tate

Quote:
Florida State and Georgia are the latest to offer Irmo native WR Auden Tate of Tampa. Tate played his freshman year at Dutch Fork before relocating to the Sunshine State. He already has offers from USC and Clemson and is showing interest in both. This summer he will visit the Tigers.
As for his new offers, Tate was expecting one and surprised by the other.
“I’ve been talking to Florida State for a while and I was just waiting on this offer,” he said. “Georgia offered me yesterday (Tuesday) and if came out of nowhere. I am very, very excited about both offers.”
Tate has no favorites but anticipates narrowing his list shortly. He would like to narrow it to ten by early-summer and then down to five.
“I would like to commit before the summer is over,” Tate said. “I just need to get in some of these visits first.”
Those visits are to Clemson, Maryland, Michigan and Georgia. The Maryland trip is the only one scheduled thus far and will be June 25th.
He said he is familiar with USC and does not plan to visit Columbia.

WR Auden Tate of Tampa was not able to visit Clemson this summer but that does not mean he will not in the future. The former Dutch Fork product just returned home from The Opening in Oregon and will visit Florida State next. That trip is scheduled for next Thursday and Friday.
I was hearing a lot more from Clemson during the spring but I havent talked to them as much this summer, Tate said. I still want to see if I can get up there for a visit.
Tate said that could be an official visit. He remains interested in the Tigers and plans to take all five of his official visits.
Even if I commit, I still want to take all five visits, he said. I wanted to commit before the season but I dont think Ive visited enough schools so I think Im going to wait.
He did attend a camp at Maryland thoroughly enjoying the trip.
I didnt think I would love it but I loved it up there, Tate said. I just liked the feel of it. The campus is beautiful and it reminded me of USC. Everything is close together and stuff like that.
He did not name any leaders and does not have a commitment date.

Any news about his visit? I'm guessing we're still on the outside looking in but it'd be nice to grab a big WR to round out the class.

Default Re: 2015 - Auden Tate

My strong guess is you have to read between the lines here. USC offered early but appears to have never firmed up the offer. Might have been provisional offer based on a in-person workout & evaluation. Don't know the facts. In any event USC never appeared to push for a commitment & one site reported he was NOT a take for USC. That was weeks before these latest commitments when the numbers were far more flexible than they are now.

USC apparently has guys they need & want a lot more than Tate. No sour grapes either as we've clearly lost guys we wanted badly, Rivers, Spain, etc. in the past. I'm just fairly confident this was not one of those cases.

Good luck to the guy, I just don't think it's likely you come from Tampa on your own dime & leave early if you have a committable offer. Something upset the apple cart. Most guys, even if they have little interest in the school, are at least grateful for the offer. His comments sounded more bitter than thankful.

Well they wanted a big receiver but wanted a guy that could move. It sounds like Tate is a little too stiff for their likening. Probably a product of the smaller receivers doing so well.

Hard to blame the kid, really. He came out, gave it a look, and it just wasn't the right atmosphere for him. Nothing wrong with that.
