"I didn't end up visiting Idaho, the weekend before they got two junior college commits at receiver," said Tate. "Portland State, it was good, it was fun. I like the campus and the people. I love coach Coop, their wide receiver coach and coach Burton makes you want to commit just listening to him talk."
While Portland State was enjoyable, it was the visit to Eastern Washington that stood out.
"For the past two weeks now I have been committed to Eastern," said Tate. "Going out there I knew I loved the coaching staff. I love coach Baldwin. Coach Adams is an amazing coach personally and position wise. I am comfortable because I know a lot of the players on the team. It seemed like a good family atmosphere."
Tate was done with the recruiting process, until a familiar face reached out to him.
"After that I thought I was done. But coach Dougherty, who was at Washington, is new the new offensive coordinator at San Jose State," said Tate. "He wants me to come on a visit, which is what I am going to do. They are not 100% on an offer yet, but if it was up to him it is done. The head coach wants to see me and talk to me."
So what would it take for Tate to switch his commitment?
"I don't know," said Tate. "I would have to see the campus and talk to the people, really get to know the coaching staff. I don't know my positional coach, I talked to him for the first time just a little bit ago."
