Latwan Anderson Favors West Virginia
Latwan Anderson, a standout defensive back from Cleveland Glenville, named his top three schools recently and West Virginia was at the top of his list. Cincinnati and Ohio State where numbers 2 and 3 for the 2010 Safety prospect with blazing speed. This ranking came after a visit to Morgantown for their game against Marshall.

West Virginia is Most Appealing
Family is very important to Anderson who liked the way the coaches and players interacted with each other on his visit to West Virginia. His parents were along for the visit and they also liked the family atmosphere. The way the team gets along and spends time together reminds Anderson of his High School team at Glenville. Anderson transferred to Glenville after his junior year at Lakewood St Edwards near by.
Michigan State and Other Visits
A visit to Michigan State was not able to move the team up into his top list as his father enjoyed the program more than Latwan seemed to. He has another visit scheduled in December to see what the Buckeyes have to offer. Ohio State will be preparing for the Rose Bowl at the time of the visit. Glenville has been a tradition pipeline to OSU but Anderson being a transfer into the program has some Buckeye fans worried that he will not follow other Tarblodders to Columbus.
Anderson took an unofficial to Cincinnati and likes the way they play on the field. He is looking to setup a visit there sometime soon.
High School Play
He recently played up to his high national ranking when he dominated a game against rival St Ignatius. In the game, Anderson intercepted four passes and returned them 196 yards. One interception he returned 99 yards for a touchdown which put the game out of reach for the Wildcats.
