Watch John Tatter win the adidas XC Challenge in 15:00
Another one of North Carolina's top ranked runners has made his college decision.
John Tatter of R.J. Reynolds High committed to the University of Michigan on Tuesday.
The senior posted a 15:00 for 5K earlier this season at the adidas XC Challenge, which he won, and has a PB of 9:09.35 in the 3200m from the Arcadia Invitational in April.
He broke into the Flo50 national rankings after his performance at Adidas and currently sits at No. 18. He's ranked No. 2 in the state of North Carolina behind Cameron Ponder, another Winston-Salem runner who committed to run at Furman University on Monday.
Tatter currently holds the fastest 5K time in the state at 15:00 and is the favorite to win the NCHSAA 4A crown this fall.
"Coach Sullivan knows what he's doing," Tatter said. "He has experience as a three-time Olympian. He's a proven coach. He's coached multiple runners to All America finishes."Tatter also took official visits to Ole Miss, Wake Forest and Georgetown before deciding to join the Wolverines.
