In the end, distance to home ended up being a major deciding factor in the battle to land one of Oklahoma’s top prospects. So who did Tulsa (Okla.) Booker T. Washington three-star defensive end Michael Tate commit to this weekend?
“I visited Arkansas and I decided it had everything I wanted,” Tate, who is 6-foot-4 and 241 pounds, said. “It’s just the place for me. I’m most comfortable with the coaching staff, the facility and the players. Also being close to home played a real big factor for me.”
Tate said he will now no longer visit Tennessee next weekend and is solid with his commitment. He also visited Oklahoma State and Tulsa.
