He's a very raw player at the moment but his potential is sky high. He is capable of playing on either side of the line, and now that he is uncommitted, it's not like we would be poaching a fellow Big Ten commit. I'm not the coach, but from my couch, I say go for it.

Is there any word on where he's leaning?  Often times, when kids decommit, they already have their alternatives in mind.  It's rare that a kid decommits, especially late-ish like now, being completely wide open.  I suppose that info will come out soon enough.

I would go with IU. David Kenney decommitted from Iowa yesterday and is about to commit to IU soon. They are friends and I think IU may be gaining some momentum in recruiting the top players from Indianapolis.

I wouldn't trade SPEA for the Ford School*, which is my area of study. I'm extremely proud of my IU degree, and would put it up against any other degree in my field, from anywhere.

*In no way do I mean to say that the Ford School isn't a top notch college with great resources, faculty and students. Objectively, it is, and M has a lot to be proud of from its smallest college (I believe it is for undergrad, I could be wrong).

When I saw Wisconsin decommit, I was praying this would be an OLine guy. If there's one thing Wisconsin knows, it's identifying talent on the OLine.

Still, I'm sure he'd be a good pick up. Can never have too many solid men in the trenches.

Apparently a possible target is an OL out of Maryland by the name of Na'ty Rodgers. According to a couple 247 posters, he would be very interested if Michigan were to offer

He, David Kenney, John Kenny (current Iowa commit from Carmel, IN) and Elijah Daniel (current Clemson commit fro Avon, IN) are probably all going to do so together. They were all at the IU-OSU game. The in state kids, led by Antonio Allen from Ben Davis are trying to get all of them to stay home. There's a chance Tim Kimbrough (Warren Central - Georgia commit) joins them as well. That would be a huge coup for IU to land 5 highly regarded 4 star kids in state. No way they get Jaylon Smith, though.

Are you really suggesting that IU (let me clarify so we are clear, Indiana University) is on the verge of pulling off what essentially only Texas can do? That being, actually recruiting and keeping all of their high school football talent in-state in the pursuit of football glory. I'm not buying it.

That is what is about to happen. I live in Indy and this is pretty big news. The IDS (Indiana Daily Student), IU's newspaper, even has an article today with quotes from David Kenney saying he and Latham are both for sure committing. I think they are waiting till Saturday to do it at Hoosier Hysteria. IDK if Kevin Wilson will be back from losing to Navy yet, but I assume he'd hot foot it there to lock them up. They already have Allen, the 4-star safety, and are for sure adding 2 more. Elijah Daniel and John Kenney were there for the OSU game, and both are on the fence, but I think a few wins would push them over.
