Latwan Anderson has blown up on the recruiting scene in 2010, from being a prospect no one had heard of to a prospect no one can stop talking about. As signing day for the 2009 class approached, the 5-foot-11, 190 pound DB with the 4.3 second 40 had already received offers from Cincinnati, Duke, Iowa, Michigan State, and West Virginia.
And on February 4th, 2009, the Michigan Wolverines jumped into the mix.
"A lot of excitement" Anderson told GoBlueWolverine upon hearing of his Michigan offer. "I had been waiting for them for a while. I like Michigan a lot so I was real excited. They're usually a good team, and they play in the Big Ten which is a great conference. And they put a ton of players in the NFL."
One of those players that the Wolverines have put into the league just so happens to have a connection with Latwan. It's something Anderson just recently discovered.
"I just recently found out I have a cousin that went there. It's Marlin Jackson, who plays with the Colts now."
Even with the recent discovery of such a famous relative, Anderson has never made the short trek from the Cleveland area to Ann Arbor. It's something he's now resolved upon doing, given Michigan's offer.
"I've never been to Michigan, but I plan on going. I actually just talked to my dad about it. Probably for an official - we'll see."
With a visit now being put in the works, there are already Wolverine forces in the ear of the speedy safety. Ricardo Miller and brand new commit Jerald Robinson have already put in work on trying to secure a future teammate. Anderson says the work and attention are welcome.
"It just shows me that they really care," Anderson said. "They want to be there. They know it's a good school."
And Anderson has thought enough about recruiting already to have a top group of schools. " My top three is what it is," he said. "It's Michigan, Michigan State and West Virginia in no specific order."
