Latwan Anderson, 5-Star Recruit, Changes Commitment To Miami

Bill RobbinsContributor IMarch 10, 2010

Highly regarded athlete and defensive back Latwan Anderson, according to and other reports, has switched his commitment from West Virginia to Miami.

Anderson, U.S. Army high school All-American, originally committed to West Virginia, but did not sign with them on signing day. Which left his options open. He was expected to visit USC and sign the letter of intent with them. But it didn't happen. Which left the door open for Miami.

Now it is reported that he will sign with the Hurricanes, but not on a football scholarship. Instead a track scholarship. However, he will play with the football team in the fall.

Anderson according to Rivals, is rated a five-star recruit, 1st best player in Ohio, 15th best recruit in the country, and 2nd best athlete.

Now with the signing of Anderson, Miami's recruiting class adds it's first five star recruit to it's unheralded but potentially excellent 2010 recruiting class. However they might not be over with signing recruits for the 2010 class.

One highly recruit offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson who committed but did not sign with USC, is waiting on the hearing for USC's possible infractions with the NCAA. If the ruling is bad, Henderson could switch his commitment from USC to Miami or Ohio State.
