Beyond blessed to be able to announce that I am verbally committed to a division 1 college to continue my athletic career on a full ride scholarship @steadycoaching @CoachClop @Aazaar23 @CoachThurin @CoachJeffHafley @LukabuTem @BCFootball @BCEaglesEdits15 #BlackExcellence pic.twitter.com/tjgsBSfdPw— My Name Shawn Gates (@noflyzonehere) May 4, 2020
Gates has good size as a 6-0, 178 pound prospect. He chose the Eagles over the likes of Iowa State, Michigan State, among others. He is already the fourth defensive back to choose to learn from the maestro, Jeff Hafley.
Welcome to the Heights, Shawn!
