A third four-star prospect has decommitted from a Big Ten program in less than a 36-hour span. Monday night, Rivals250 defensive tackle Darius Latham of Indianapolis (Ind.) North Central notified Rivals.com he was taking his recruitment in a different direction.
"I just decommitted from Wisconsin," Latham reported.
Latham's commitment comes just 24 hours after his friend and fellow Indianapolis-area prospect David Kenney decommitted from Iowa. Both prospects were in attendance to see Indiana's shootout with Ohio State in Bloomington on Saturday.

Latham initially made his commitment to Wisconsin in early July over offers from the likes of Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State, Tennessee and others.
Following his decommitment, Kenney told Rivals.com he was close to making a commitment to Indiana. With Latham's decommitment, Indiana has to be considered the favorite to land his services as well.
The 6-foot-5, 291-pound Latham is ranked as the nation's No. 229 overall prospect and the 16th best defensive tackle. He is also ranked as the state of Indiana's No. 6 player in the 2013 class.
