"I have offers from Vanderbilt, [North] Carolina, Penn State, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Oregon, and Cal," said Latham. "They've all come in the last two months. I got Vanderbilt yesterday and Cal came last week. Carolina was my first one."
A hybrid prospect, the only question is where to play the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder at the next level – linebacker or defensive end.
"I play defensive end and outside linebacker [in high school]," said Latham. "I'm getting recruited for both, but mainly defensive end. Coaches are talking to me about both."
With a good core group of options, Latham has established a list of favorites.
"I don't have a leader yet," said Latham. "I have a top five -- in not any order, Vanderbilt, Penn State, [North] Carolina, Stanford, and Georgia Tech. Those are mainly all academic schools and all have good football programs."
During his first year on varsity at Greensboro (N.C.) Page, Latham recorded 12 ½ sacks and was second on the team in tackles, as a junior. He earned second team all-conference recognition for his accomplishments.
