Rivals100 defensive back Latwan Anderson has picked up several offers this Spring, but narrowing his list of schools will have to wait. That is because Latwan is helping Glenville try to win the Ohio state track championship.
The talented athlete joined Glenville's track team on May 11th. A couple of days later, he won the city championship in the 200 meter dash (21.3), and ran on the winning 4X100 and 4X200 relays teams.
"It is me, Shane Wynn, Toney Foster, and Stefone Black," Anderson said.
Wynn and Foster join Anderson as three of the Cleveland area's fastest football prospects. Foster sat out the city championships with an injury, but is reportedly ready to go.
When asked if his team dominates the competition, Anderson shyly responded yes.
"Yeah, we pretty much destroy the other teams," Anderson admitted. It is fun being on a team that will probably win state. Glenville's track program has helped me a lot. Is is good, we have a track meet today, district finals. I have picked up more speed this season and I am quicker."
That is a scary prospect for Glenville's opponents in 2009. Anderson was already one of the Midwest's most explosive players. That is why colleges from across the country have offered football scholarships.
"Wisconsin is my newest offer. They have visited recently. Kansas, Colorado, UCONN, Ball State, a lot of other schools have come in and visited my school in the past couple of weeks."
Latwan has yet to narrow down his list of choices.
"The process is tough. A lot of people call and tell me they want me at their school."
Latwan told GamecockCentral.com in April that Michigan and Michigan State are two programs that stick out.
"They are still close to the top. I like those programs and their tradition. I can play early at both of those schools. I like the coaches."
Anderson said he is still wide open. Proximity to home will not play a factor, and playing in the Big 10 is not really a priority.
