Another gem I have found while studying film is Middletown, Del., defensive end Eric Latimore, 6-foot-6 and 240 pounds. Latimore is a very explosive player off the edge. He has a great frame and a tremendous wingspan. He possesses the size and athleticism that college coaches crave. That could explain why a number of programs have been in to visit him this month.
Delaware is not a state that is known for its football talent so one would understand the excitement that Latimore exhibits when discussing his visitors.
Dave Wannstedt came here. I knew he was coming but I was kind of in shock that he was here, Latimore said. He was telling me about the DEs hes coached like Jason Taylor and how they could use a big DE like me at Pittsburgh.

Penn State assistant Ron Vanderlinden also made a favorable impression on the young standout.
He told me I was a very good athlete and he like what he saw when I was at the F&B Combine at Valley Forge. He said they liked me and would keep in touch.
Latimore has earned three offers thus far, but hes hoping for more.
I have offers from Delaware, Western Michigan and Tennessee State right now, Latimore said. I think Marshall and Pitt may offer, maybe a few more.
