Lattimore, 6-foot-2, 180-pounds, worked out as a cornerback on Monday at the Best of the Midwest combine and walked away with the top defensive back award.
"I was looking forward to coming to this event and seeing how I stacked up to the competition," Lattimore stated. "Everybody is trying to go at me, and I think that's cool. A couple people were talking about coming after me, and that's pretty funny."
"I ran well today and I've been training every week for this," he added. "I ran a 4.42 forty-yard dash, but I want to get under a 4.4 time, so I need to keep working harder."
"Not too much is going on right now, and my most recent offer is Tennessee," he explained. "I would love to have offers from Alabama, Florida and LSU. Alabama has been messaging me on Facebook, but they haven't offered yet."
"I'm interested in every school right now, and I haven't cut my list down at all," he continued. "I am planning on taking my official visits next year, and then announce later in the year. This spring I'm planning on visiting Tennesee with (teammate) Erick Smith, and we've talked about playing at the same school together."
EVALUATION: As one of Ohio's top all-around athletes, Lattimore could easily play either side of the football, and he prefers playing cornerback. At the combine, he showed his superior coverage skills, and also posted a 4.15 shuttle time, a 10' broad jump, as well as the 4.42 forty-yard time. Lattimore is in contention for five-star status, and is one of the top prospects in the Midwest.
