Recruiting: Lattier Impressed With Cowboys

"I love it up there, it's great," said Demarcus Lattier, the standout defensive tackle from South Garland, Texas. The 6-2, 288-pounder was part of a large group of prospects at the Cowboys overtime thriller with Texas A&M. Lattier said he even considered committing to Oklahoma State, but after the game the OSU coaches were somewhat down and concerned about their players following the loss.

"I wanted to commit when I talked to Coach Bradford (OSU linebackers coach Todd Bradford)," said Lattier. "I understand when you lose a close game like that how you feel and everything. I thought I wanted to commit because I really love it up there."

Lattier runs well and said his South Garland team, which lost on Friday to Rockwall, is trying to make a run into the playoffs. Lattier has 5.0 speed, can bench 335 pounds, and squats 510 pounds.

"Recruiting has been good," he said. "Besides OSU I'm hearing from Kansas, Kansas State, Indiana, UNLV and Arizona."

Lattier didn't know his current season stats, but described himself as a player.

"I carry the frame of a defensive tackle, but I am faster than most defensive tackles and can run to the ball," said Lattier. "I can also clog up the middle and be disruptive."

Lattier said he will look forward to talking with the Cowboys again soon.
