Question re: Latwan Anderson

Submitted by Blue in Yarmouth on February 15th, 2010 at 1:17 PM

O.K., so I know the rules and I have searched the site to the best of my abilities and found nothing of substance about Anderson since it was reported that he was considering UM again.

I am wondering if there has been any development in his case? I believe he was announcing on the 17th which is in a couple of days so I was interested if anyone had heard where the three (UM, USC and WVU) stand for his services?

I also wondered if we had even got him on campus, since he was planning on visiting USC and hadn't been to UM except for a camp back in the summer or something.

Anyway, I was jsut wondering if anyone had heard anything new on the subject.

P.S. I know that people don't intentionally keep things from me on this site, I just thought that I may have missed something as I have been away at a conference for a few days and didn't have a chance to get online. Couple that with the fact that my searching skills are very limited and I am just wondering if I missed anything the past 5 days.

Thanks for your help!

It would be icing on the cake to get him but we're the 3rd horse in a 2 horse race. He's already verballed to WVU so I expect they are the heavy favorites but something tells me that Kiffin has some really strong snake oil and that is where he ends up signing. My guess is he is waiting on to see what happens with the infractions issue as well.

Song Girls at USC don't represent the entire campus.

The rule of thumb on hot girls is simple:

1) Public schools over private schools
2) Easier schools to get into over harder schools to get into

Tennessee is public and easier to get into than USC, which is also private.

So..... you are incorrect - Tenn girls on average are much hotter.

Rule #3: It doesn't really matter, because the football players have their pick of the litter anyways, and the top 2% at just about any school in the country is extremely high caliber. It's the volume of hot chicks that varies from place to place, not the quality at the top end.

In general, I'll agree with you. I have even seen girls that went to Northwestern who are model material. OK, it was just one girl, but according to your rule, there must be more.

The counterpoint I would bring up to that is, if you take the top 2% of the female population, that's still a pretty big number of girls (over 100, even at private schools like USC). You'd have to dig even deeper to find the girls that would:

A) Be interested in sports
B) Not have a boyfriend / not care about their boyfriend
C) Be willing to help (work for?) the football team
D) Possibly be willing to bang these young stallions

After all is said and done, I still think you'd find a much better "recruiting class" at Tenn than at USC.

At Tennessee you would be fairly limited to the student body (or bodies, as the case may be), but in L.A., a USC player has what I could only describe as a smorgasbord of options outside the campus. Imagine yourself going to a club in a city the size of L.A., that is rife with girls that show up there to try and make it as a model/actress/whatever and your line to a girl is, 'I play football at USC'. Cha-ching, TOUCHDOWN!

I don't think he would qualify academically for us. Per
scout, he has a 2.7 GPA, an 850 on his SAT and a 16 on his ACT with a retake date not yet set.

I think we should focus on the people we have. Let's hope that Cameron Gordon learns the safety position quickly. A blue-chip recruit would be a nice addition, but it seems extremely unlikely.

are claiming Latwan is still in the mix for tOSU, with SC and W Va the other options, but there has been a weird vibe in the reports suggesting that Tressel is miffed at him and "doesn't have room" for another CB recruit in this class. Makes no sense inasmuch as tOSU just gave Archie Griffin's 2 star son a scholarship, snatching him away from the service academies, which were his other options.

What does one have to do with the other?

Also, and I apologize in advance for being an asshole (its a slow day here), what is "tOSU"? If it is a jab at Pryor, wouldn't it be "TOSU"? When "The" is part of an acronym the t is always capitalized, just like the other letters. So, in making fun of Pryor you are really not doing too well for yourself.

Just saying.

the Bucks have only one DB in their class. They already had two well-regarded running backs. They just burned a scholarship on a third RB, a two-star at that. They plainly had another scholarship to use, and there would be no reason not to use it on a 5 star DB if they could land him. As far as tOSU is concerned, that abbreviation has appeared on these pages for monthsif not years, so you should ask the people who devised and then popularized it. To me, it seems obvious that it is a way to ridicule the absurd way alumni football players, when announcing where they attended school in NFL pre-games, say they went to "THE Ohio State University," with emphasis on the "THE." But to each his own on that one.

Yes, Latwan Anderson has presumably postponed his announcement so he can take a visit to USC. He was scheduled to visit this past weekend, but his father was unavailable. It is re-scheduled for February 26. Here is the
