Latu, a Florida native, has played the last two years at College of the Canyons.
The 6-foot-5, 310-pound offensive tackle recently took a visit to Arkansas State.
"It was great," Latu said. "I liked everything, the people and the community."
Latu was recruited and was a one time commitment for the Auburn Tigers and he is very familiar with Gus Malzahn.
"Coach Gus is the man," Latu said. "He is a great coach, someone I wouldn't mind playing for."
Another positive for Arkansas State is the fact that longtime friend Steven Haunga is on the Red Wolves roster.
"Knowing I have my brother on the right side of me would be great," Latu said. "We are great friends."
Latu will take an official visit to Oklahoma this weekend and will decide where he is attending college on National Signing Day.
