Dennis Lattimore spurns Gophers to sign with Irish

6-8 sophomore forward Dennis Latimore, who left Arizona before the end of the season, signed with Notre Dame. He had previously visited Minnesota, Iowa State, Oklahoma and Wichita State.

Dennis Lattimore was part of one of the country's top recruiting classes. He appeared in all 34 of Arizona's games as a freshman and averaged 3.2 points and 3.1 rebounds per game this year. Minnesota was thought to have a chance to land the Halstead, Kan., native since he and Rick Rickert played together in AAU ball.
