Tate a Saturday no-show at UNC
Posted August 8, 2009
UNC football recruit Donovan Tate did not practice with the team Saturday.
Tate had been expected to work out with the Tar Heels, but was still en route from his home state of Georgia.
The #3 pick in the Major League Baseball Draft, Tate has until August 17 to work out a contract with the San Diego Padres.
Assuming Tate does sign with San Diego, the Padres would likely include a clause in the contract preventing him from playing college football.
If the contract talks break down, Carolina would use Tate as a quarterback.
