It is that time of the year in the recruiting cycle where a lot of havoc ensues. Late offers get thrown out, late visits happen, and flips inevitably occur.
Iowa has a few commits that other schools have had an eye on for quite a while and they're dealing with these kinds of situations now. Four-star defensive tackle Cedrick Lattimore of Detroit has been committed to the Hawkeyes for quite a while but added a Michigan State offer today.
Is there room for concern? Naturally there could be. It is an in-state school for Lattimore and one that is in the College Football Playoffs and has a history of recruiting very well in the Detroit area. The Spartans have had a great deal of success in the Motor City with Mark Dantonio at the controls.
Right now, Lattimore is not spending too much time on the offer but he is thankful.
"Blessed to receive an offer from the Michigan State Spartans," he tweeted early on Friday. The offer from the Spartans is his 11th of the process.
However, it does not look like there's any immediate concern on the Hawkeyes' end.
"No, (it does not really have an impact) right now," Lattimore replied to Scout's inquiry about the new offer. "I just need to talk it over with the family."
Furthermore, Lattimore reaffirmed his status with Kirk Ferentz's program.
"I'm not sure if I will visit Michigan State," he shared. "Right now I'm with Iowa. I love Iowa."
