"Coach Powell had me on speaker phone with some of the offensive staff. They told me they liked my film and wanted me for guard."
In addition to the Tar Heels, the May evaluation period has brought in offers from East Carolina, Florida, N.C. State, Ohio State, and West Virginia. Latif previously held offers from Maryland, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest.
Currently Latif favors Maryland, Virginia, and Virginia Tech, but admits none of his offering schools are out of race just yet.
"Everything is equal between everybody right now, but those are the top three," said Latif.
During the Tar Heels' junior day in early spring Latif received an opportunity to check out the campus.
"I like them," said Latif. "It's a good school. They have a nice campus and stadium and everything."
The coaching staff is hoping to get Latif to make a return visit during the summer time possibly for a camp. However, Latif has yet to map out his summer camping schedule.
As a junior at Midlothian (Va.) Manchester, Latif was named All-Dominon District first team, All-Central Region first team, All-Metro (Richmond) first team, and second team All-State. On the year the 6-foot-2, 276-pounder collected 87 pancake blocks.
