Arizona football to add QB Donavan Tate, former 3rd overall MLB draft pick

The Arizona Wildcats are adding another name to their starting quarterback competition, and it’s a player who is eight years removed from his football career. Donavan Tate, the third overall pick in the 2009 MLB Draft, will join Rich Rodriguez’s team as a 26-year-old freshman.

Rodriguez announced the addition of a former baseball player at an event Wednesday night, and the Arizona Daily Star’s Michael Lev reported it was, in fact, Tate, the former San Diego Padres prospect.

In 2009, Tate was ranked as the 89th-best football prospect as a quarterback out of Cartersville High School in Cartersville, Ga., and committed to attend North Carolina before turning pro as a baseball player.

Taken after Tate was some kid from New Jersey named Mike Trout.
