Nation's No. 5 OT Tate Ratledge sets decision date for commitment to either Georgia or Tennessee
Tate Ratledge is ready to end his recruitment.
The 6-foot-6, 311-pound offensive lineman from Rome, Ga., is down to two schools and plans to narrow that list down to one lucky winner on Monday, May 13. The nation’s No. 5 offensive tackle is currently ranked as the nation’s No. 39 overall prospect by 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Ratledge has reasons to select both schools as he comes from a Tennessee family but also has a strong connection to Georgia offensive line coach Sam Pittman. The Bulldogs may be losing one, if not two, offensive tackles after this season to the NFL while Tennessee is still in the process of building up its offensive line under Jeremy Pruitt.
Both fan bases will be on pins and needles leading up to this decision but thankfully they won’t have to wait long to find out which way Ratledge is leaning. The Georgia offensive lineman announced the news via this Twitter post on Wednesday:
