Does Anderson Have Renewed Michigan Interest?

Cleveland (OH) Glenville DB Latwan Anderson was one of the early hot names on Wolverine fans minds, but over the summer the Maize & Blue fell from contention. Is Michigan now back in the mix for the Buckeye State star?

Latwan Anderson's name blazed across many recruiting message boards as fast as his forty time in the early 2009-10 recruiting season.  Michigan fans were among those enamored with the safety from Cleveland Glenville (OH), only to see them knocked off the list.  Due to a late push, however, the Wolverines have clawed back in the race for Anderson.

"Coach Tall called me and we talked a little bit, me, him and my dad," Anderson told GoBlueWolverine.  "And he was saying basically we could come up there and hang out with him a bit and see what it's like, and I figured he was right.  So there's a chance I could really visit there."

If the visit does indeed come into fruition, then Wolverine fans will see Anderson on campus quite quickly.

"Sometime in the next three weeks. It'd probably be an official, and I'd probably bring my parents.  As fans, they don't like Michigan of course, but as my parents they support it if I want to visit there or go there."

Michigan currently trails behind Anderson's top three schools, but are in the mix in the jumble of schools that sit behind the top dogs.

"West Virginia, Ohio State and Cincinnati (are his leaders), but the rest kind of change everyday."

Anderson spent his senior season at famed Cleveland Glenville, which has been nothing short of an automatic pipeline to Ohio Sate.  Anderson, however, will give every school in contention a shot, and that includes the Wolverines.

"Not really.  It's more of thing where me and my parents sit down and make the decision.  It's not really based off of what school I'm at."

But make no mistake, the Maize and Blue definitely have some work to do to catch up.  The question is, how much?

"As far as football, not a lot," he said.  "But the grade and academic situation (there's more work to do to catch up), it's not that much either -- but it would have to match what I've seen."

Anderson is slated to play in the annual Army All American Bowl in early January.  There is a chance fans will finally know learn his final destination.  That is, of course, if Anderson is ready to take that plunge.

"If I'm really sure about where I want to go, then I'll do it at the game, but if not then I'll just keep waiting," he said.

GoBlueWolverine will have more on Anderson in the coming weeks.
