Latwan Anderson Talks About Buckeye Visit

Cleveland Glenville four-star defensive back Latwan Anderson is one of the top uncommitted recruits in Ohio. Anderson took his official visit to Ohio State last weekend. Does Anderson have any other visits planned? Bill Greene has the latest.

Latwan Anderson, Cleveland Glenville, recently completed his official visit to Ohio State. Anderson, one of the top uncommitted recruits in the state, discussed his experience in Columbus.

"It was a pretty nice visit and I enjoyed hanging out with all the players at Ohio State," Anderson began. "Overall, I had a great time. I hung out with a lot of the guys from Glenville, like Rob Rose, Marcus Hall and Ray Small. We also spent time with C.J. Barnett and Devier Posey, and everybody was great to me. They were all good people to be around."

Anderson, a four-star defensive back, also met with the Buckeye coaching staff, including an interesting meeting with assistant coach Taver Johnson.

"I had a couple meetings with the head coach, Jim Tressel," he reported. "Coach Tressel talked about me finishing my senior year strongly from an academic point of view. We talked a little bit about football, but mostly it was about being a good citizen and being a good person. He never pressured me to commit at all, and he was very low-key. I think we have a great relationship."

"Coach Taver (Johnson) and I had a very unique conversation and I was really surprised by him," he stated. "We talked about all sorts of things, but not really anything about football, and not really about Ohio State. He talked to me about what life will be like in college, things like getting my own check book and doing my laundry. It was information that I will need to know no matter where I go to college. It was more about living away from home for the first time and advice on that situation."

Anderson, 5-foot-9, 170-pounds, has already visited West Virginia and came away impressed, but indicated he still has more visits remaining before he makes his decision.

"I have in-home visits this week with West Virginia and North Carolina," Anderson said. "I will visit North Carolina this coming weekend. I believe Coach Taver (Johnson) is coming next week from Ohio State and Coach (Jim) Tressel is coming to see me after Christmas break."

He is scheduled to play in the U.S. Army All-American game in San Antonio in early January, and may announce his choice at that time.

"I might announce my decision at the Army All-American game if I know for sure where I'm going," he said. "If not, I will wait and announce my choice later in the month, or on National Signing Day. I'm just not real sure about that right now."
