CARROLLTON, Ga. – The West Georgia Wolves have added their second men’s basketball signee of the 2019 recruiting season. Head coach Dave Moore announced that transfer William “Kovi” Tate has signed a grant-in-aid with UWG and will be part of the Wolves’ program next season.
“Kovi Tate is a versatile, 6-6 combo forward who can play the four-and-five (positions) for us,” says Moore of his newest recruit. The coach adds, “He brings great length and athleticism to us. We can plug him in from day one and he’ll have an immediate impact for us.”
Tate, 6-6 and 225, is native of McDonough and prepped at Henry County High School. He comes to West Georgia following two seasons at Division II North Greenville. A year ago he led the Crusaders in scoring at 13.6 points per game, and 8.6 rebounds were tops on the team and ranked third in Conference Carolinas in 2018-19.
Tate is the second signee to join the Wolves’ program this recruiting season. Moore’s first recruit was Keshawn Heard, a 6-7, 225-pound forward from Newark (Ohio) High School. Moore and his staff are continuing their recruiting efforts and the coach expects to add more names to the Wolves’ roster before the signing period is completed.
