CLEVELAND - Five-star athlete Latwan Anderson named his top three schools on Thursday. The Glenville star told Rivals.com that West Virginia is his No. 1 school, followed by Cincinnati, then Ohio State.
Anderson recently visited Morgantown for the Mountaineers game against Marshall.
"I went to West Virginia and liked it a lot," Anderson said. "My mom and Dad liked it a lot. They are still number one. It was more of a family thing there. The whole time I was there the players stuck together. The coaches seemed to have a real good relationship with the players, kind of like what we have here at Glenville."
The following week, Anderson tripped to East Lansing for the Spartans' game against Iowa.
"It was alright, but not what I expected," Anderson said. "My dad liked it, but my mom did not like it as much. The game exitement was fun, they don't have too many night games. The academics are set up well. I just didn't feel the coach to player relationship there and the player to player relationship as much at Michigan State as I did at West Virginia."
Anderson said he still has three official visits.
"The only other visit I have set is Ohio State, and that is sometime in December," Anderson said. "I am trying to figure out two more schools to visit. I would like to use those last two visits. I have to sit down and talk with my dad about what we want to do."
"Right now, Ohio State is third behind Cincinnati. I have not been to Cincinnati officially, but I checked out a spring practice. They play aggressive on defense, and they have an exciting offense. I talk to coach [Charley]Molnar all the time about coming down there for another visit and checking out the academics and meeting the coaches and players. That is the one thing I have not had the chance to do yet at Cincinnati."
Glenville finishes up the regular season on Friday with a game against Cleveland East. Then it is on to the playoffs for the Tarblooders, where another showdown with St. Ignatius could happen by the second round. Glenville's only loss this season is a 14-13 setback to St. Ignatius in the season opener.
"I think we are a better team now than we were at the beginning of the season. We are in good position to get to where we need to be. Plus, I think we are more mature now and ready to handle the excitement that surround playing a team like St. Ignatius."
