Latham Circles Back To Decision

These days a lot of guys commit, de-commit and never give their first love much of a chance the second time around. For Jordan Latham of Baltimore City College, that wasn't the case.

Jordan Latham is going to Xavier.

After taking a second spin around the recruiting process, Orlando Latham said that his son has landed back on his first choice. "Jordan's going to Xavier," Orlando told Thursday morning.

A recent article indicated that Latham was on the verge of coming to a conclusion and signs had pointed back Xavier's way.

"With the relationship it's almost like nothing ever changed for real," Latham said of the Musketeers. "Coach Mack just replaced Coach Miller and Coach Bino replaced Book [Richardson]. Me and Bino talk all the time and he's always asking about my game. We talk on a consistent basis."

Marquette, Virginia Tech and Penn State made him think about the decision but in the end, he circled back to his original choice.

"It was one of those things that you wanted to make sure it was the right decision," Orlando Latham said. "He explored his options and that's where his heart was."
