SMU Back In On Latimer

PonyStampede.com broke the news on Sunday night that Cody Latimer was opening up his recruitment. Come inside to read his total thoughts on the situation and where SMU stands at this point.

Coaching searches are usually hard on commitments and Indiana is about to see this first hand. Receiver Cody Latimer of Jefferson Township HS in Dayton, Ohio will be opening up his recruitment and taking officials to others schools in the near future.

"I'm keeping my options open now. Other schools have been calling me and I'm setting up my officials," said Latimer to PonyStampede.com. "SMU has called, UCONN, and Ohio University. I'm trying to visit Western Kentucky, SMU, and UCONN all on officials. I have already been to Ohio."

While SMU, Ohio, and Western Kentucky were on Latimer early in his recruitment, UCONN has just jumped in recently.

"UCONN just came in the last couple of months and offered me a couple of weeks ago," said the Scout.com 2-star receiver. "At this point, every is pretty much even. Indiana is still in it, but I don't know what is going to happen. I don't know if they are going get rid of the whole coaching staff and bring in new guys. I just really have to wait and see what they do. I like the coaching staff, we got pretty close. I liked the university period and the facilities, but it was sort of half-and-half with the coaching staff"

When PonyStampede.com reached out to Latimer on Sunday night, he was just fresh off a phone call with SMU offensive line coach Adrian Klemm, who reiterated the Mustangs need for the 6-foot-3 receiver.

"He just called me and told me they are really wanting me. That they are going to be really recruiting me hard and staying on me. He really wants me to consider opening up and taking a visit," said Latimer.

The Dayton product is coming off another stellar season on the field. He recorded 42 catches for 722 yards and six receiving touchdowns. He also had 27 rushes for 342 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. But, he wasn't just a star on offense. Latimer was second on Jefferson Township in tackles, with 89 on the year.

PonyStampede.com will stay in constant contact with Latimer and let SMU fans know if anything breaks.
