Ohio Glenville Safety Latwan Anderson is currently looking at four schools: OSU, Georgia, West Virginia, and Cincinnati. It's unclear why Michigan has dropped from his list of schools, but I suspect it has something to do with the words Cleveland, Glenville, and West Virginia.

“I’ve been to a lot of different schools for camps and things like that,” Anderson reported. “I liked most of them but a few stuck out to me like Ohio State, Georgia, and West Virginia. I really liked how all three of these schools stressed academics as the key to everything."

Talk is cheap, and I'd encourage any recruit hearing these things to look at the proof that's in the pudding. Truth is Michigan has a higher graduation rate than nearly every other school, is a more highly ranked school on every national report, and the team GPA was the highest during the past academic year than it has been in the last 40 years.

That being said, you can't knock a recruit for liking a different school. To each his own.
