Carnell Tate hopes to become the next Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson or Jaxon Smith-Njigba during his time at Ohio State. Of course, like every pass-catcher that walks through “WRU” he too likely is looking to become the best.

Tate said during a Q&A segment that his goals are to win a B1G title and eventual national title during his time in Columbus. More than anything, he hopes to see playing time while making an immediate impact on the offense in Year 1.

A 5-star receiver from the IMG Academy in Bradenton (FL), Tate was listed as the 247Sports Composite’s No. 10 wide receiver prospect and the No. 61 player in the nation. He chose Ohio State over other high-profile programs including Tennessee, LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Florida State, Florida, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, and USC among others.

There’s no telling if Tate will carve out a significant role with the offense as a freshman, but he will have a chance to work with the 1st-team offense should he impress coming out of camp. The Buckeyes will need another receiver to replace Smith-Njigba in the lineup as he officially declared for the NFL Draft last month.
