Lattimore to visit Ohio State on Saturday

By Brad Bournival

Athlete Marshon Lattimore (Cleveland/Glenville) indicated in a text message that he will be on the Ohio State campus Saturday and is bringing his mother, father and uncle along with him.

Lattimore is no stranger to Columbus, Ohio, as he already has made a handful of visits to see the Buckeyes.

The 6-foot, 179-pound Lattimore picked up his offer from the Buckeyes on Labor Day, and offers from Alabama, Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina State, Penn State, Tennessee, Toledo and USC have followed.

Since that time he was named the Best of the Midwest Combine MVP among cornerbacks in what has been a busy spring.

Lattimore started turning heads after Week 2 of his junior season when he rushed for 107 yards and caught six passes for 132 yards, scoring four touchdowns in Glenville's 40-17 win over Solon.

“This will be the first visit my parents are going to, but not the last,” Lattimore said. “I look forward to getting their opinion on the school. I plan on taking one, if not both, on future visits to different schools.”

The Buckeyes are no stranger to Lattimore as Glenville has had 18 of its football players sign with Ohio State since 2002 and a 19th -- offensive tackle Marcelys Jones -- has given his pledge as well.

Ohio State 2013 signee Christopher Worley was also a teammate of Lattimore's last season.

Lattimore has run the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds. Last season he registered more than 1,400 all-purpose yards and scored 17 touchdowns. More than 500 yards of those yards were receiving, with a team-leading 10 scores coming in the passing game.
