Some times trips go great, and some times go not so great. The latter was the case for Aurora (Colo.) Gateway outside linebacker Zach Latimer when it came to his visit to Purdue.
When asked to rate his visit on a scale from one to 10, Latimer said his visit would earn "very low" marks.
"I would probably give it about a two or a three," Latimer, who is 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, said.
"It was cold and the wind was blowing. It was a good game when I could feel my toes. It was a nice little college town, but I didn't get to see too much of it because my host wasn't very good."
Latimer went on to talk about his host but didn't want to go on the record with some of the negative things that ended up happening. However, he did make one recommendation to the Boilermaker coaches before he left town.
"I told them that they better not have that guy be the host again," Latimer said. "What he ended up doing, didn't work with me. Let's just say he got partied out a little bit early, and I ended up not getting to do very much. He was a horrible host."
Latimer said Oklahoma remains his “slight leader” and that he is still looking forward to his three other trips.
"I'm still set up to visit Colorado on Nov. 23," Latimer said. "Then I got to UCLA (Dec. 7) and Miami (Dec. 14). "I'm not going to let this one bad experience get me down, because I had a great time at Oklahoma. I guess I just didn't fit in really well at Purdue.
It's nothing against the coaches and the town because they seemed to be things that I liked, but I just didn't get a good feeling."
