Florida State has added another weapon to its recruiting class.
Four-star Wharton (Tampa, Florida) wide receiver Auden Tate committed to the Seminoles on Tuesday. After receiving an offer he desired for quite some time, Tate knew Florida State would be the school he would choose.
“I have committed to the university, of Florida State,” he stated during his ceremony.
“I love how they spread the ball around,” he said. “I can’t wait to get there.”
At 6’4, 200 pounds, Tate has that big-play ability coaches look for and will be a nice complement to the quicker and more agile receivers Florida State currently has.
Florida State could potentially pull off back-to-back great wide receiver classes. Last year, Jimbo Fisher sealed the deal with Travis Rudolph and Ermon Lane, both five-star prospects and also four-star Javon Harrison.
The Seminoles still have their eyes on some big fish as well. Miami Central wide receiver De’Vante Phillips is considered a heavy Florida State lean and some believe Alabama commitment Calvin Ridley could wind up in the class as well. Both are Top 50 overall prospects, according to Rivals.com.
Tate chose Florida State over Maryland and Michigan.
