Getting bigger and faster is always a priority when it comes to recruiting. Terrell Lathan (6-foot-4, 250-pounds) is both big and fast, which is why teams he has caught the attention of teams like Notre Dame.
"I'm getting letters from them about every other day," Lathan said when asked if Notre Dame had been in contact with him. "I really don't know much about them. I'd be interested in hearing more, but I'm not sure how they heard about me.
"Nobody has offered me yet, but I am also hearing from LSU, Tennessee, Arkansas, Alabama, Auburn, Maim, Florida State, Louisville, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Texas AM, Nebraska, North Texas.
"I really don't know what school I want t go to," he said. "Right now I'm really looking at my options and see who is going to offer me and see how it goes from there.
"When it comes down to it, I think me and my dad are going to sit down to talk about it and he's going to help me make my decision on where I want to go, and find the best place for me to go."
Other than the schools that have contacted him, Terrell also has interest in Oregon State, Ohio State, TCU, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State.
Not only is his college destination up in the air, but which position he'll play is as well. He has the size that he could play defense end, or outside linebacker in the ‘3-4'.
"I could play outside linebacker or defense end, but I like outside linebacker better," Lathan explained. "We run a ‘3-4' right now. We just switched to it and I've been playing defensive end. We blitz and read all the time. I like playing linebacker to blitz off the edge, and I like playing in space."
