Michigan, OSU in tug of war for versatile hustle king Jae’Sean Tate

Sam Webb profiles 2014 offeree Jae’Sean Tate in the Detroit News:

“I never really, to be honest, cared about the Ohio State-Michigan thing,” he said. “I’m definitely not an Ohio State football fan. I’m with Denard Robinson all the way on that. I love Michigan football.”

At the moment Tate is legitimately torn, but takes comfort in the fact that he’ll have the full support of his family regardless of the school he picks

“(My parents) like Michigan,” he said. “Whatever decision I make they’re behind me 100 percent. They just want the best for me. They trust (the Michigan coaches).

“They trust (Ohio State’s) too. Those guys (at Ohio State) are really cool. I like them a lot too. My parents trust them just as much as they trust Michigan. And like I said, they are behind me in whatever decision I make.”

    My interpretation is that Michigan is in the lead after reading that

    He definitely leaked a bit when he said his parents liked Michigan, then he backtracked and tried to say they liked OSU just as much.

    He will probably go back and forth a few times before deciding, like all recruits do… but it is always fun to have a recruit who narrows it down to us and the Buckeyes.

    I’m sure he angered a lot of hothead ohio fans by revealing that he likes Michigan football better than Tattoo U. If he winds up going there and has a bad game, they’ll be all over him.

      If you go to the comments in the News article, the ohio hotheads are already ripping on him for just considering Michigan. That’s what they do.

        We’re just better human being than they are. :)

    “Simply put, Tate is Ron Artest minus the eccentricities.”- Sam Webb

    That’s good enough for me. Every team can use a guy like that.
