Is Kates Ready to Decide?

Bishop McDevitt high school (Harrisburg, Pa.) standout defensive tackle Jason Kates recently made unofficial visits to Penn State and Notre Dame. Is he ready to make a decision?

Sources indicated that Jason Kates had been planned to make an announcement on his college decision, Thursday June 30th. I spoke with Jason on Wednesday night to verify our information.

"Yeah, I was going to do something," Jason Kates said. "Something had been set up but it had been postponed.

I asked Jason if he planned to have a joint announcement with teammates Jeremy Ricker and LeSean McCoy.

"I don't know about that," Kates responded. "But something might be scheduled a couple weeks from now."

Kates has been a recruiting priority for the Notre Dame staff and he would be a great addition to the existing commitments. I think the Irish have a very good shot at landing the talented defensive tackle, but Penn State also made a very good impression on Kates during his unofficial visit to State College, Pa. Top Stories
