Tulsa (Okla.) Washington defensive end Michael Tate has lined up his first official visit.
“I’m going to take my first official visit to Oklahoma State on Dec. 5,” the 6-foot-4, 241-pound Tate said. “I’m really looking forward to that trip. That is the only official visit I have set up.”
The off-season visit to Stillwater won’t be the first trip down the highway for the three-star end.
“I’m going to OSU this weekend to watch their game against Texas Tech. That should be a real good game. Both teams are playing well, right now. I’m looking forward to seeing that game. I have been to a couple of Tulsa games this fall already and I went to the Arkansas game when the played Auburn.”
After this weekend, Tate will have had the opportunity to see two of his top five schools in person.
“My top five schools are Tennessee, Nebraska, LSU, Arkansas and Oklahoma State,” he said. “That list is in no particular order. I’m not favoring any school right now. I would say the five schools are all equal right now. Of the five schools, Oklahoma State is the only one that has offered me a scholarship.”
Tate has helped get Tulsa Washington off to a 6-0 start.
“I think we’re doing very good as a team,” he said. “Obviously, we haven’t lost, so we’re doing something right. I also think I’m doing real well.”
Tate has recorded 78 tackles and six quarterback sacks on the year. Both marks are tops on his team.
