The coaching staff is looking to fill needs on both the offensive and defensive line for the 2013 class, and they might be able to fill both of those needs with one prospect. Darius Latham (Indianapolis/North Central), who was recently offered by Michigan, is being evaluated as both an offensive and defensive lineman and could be a big-time force at either spot.

"I'm just taking everything in right now. I had a conversation with Coach (Darrell) Funk a couple days ago when he offered me," he said.
