To Tate, It's No Big Deal

DeMatha wide receiver Kenny Tate is one of the most sought-after football players nationally in the junior class. Coaches envision his size -- 6 feet 3 or 6-4, depending on who is measuring -- speed, and athleticism and see him as a potential superstar.

But for all of the college recruiters fawning over Tate, the teenager seems unaffected.

"I really haven't thought about" colleges, he said.

Asked he if has any scholarship offers, Kenny replied: "A couple." Pressed for specifics, he offered: "Ohio State, Illinois, Notre Dame."

Oh, just the Buckeyes and Irish. No big deal. (More on Illinois and local players' affinity for a team that just eneded a two-year Big Ten losing streak coming soon.)

So while some players become engrossed in the recruiting process and everything that surrounds it (like this blog), here's one player trying to stay clear of the mess.

"I'm still in high school," Tate said. "When the time comes to make a decision, I'll make that decision."
