Just days after possibly losing a commitment from highly touted offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson, USC coach Lane Kiffin may have found a top-flight replacement recruit for his 2010 class.
Safety Latwan Anderson, who had a verbal commitment to West Virginia before national signing day, instead decided to postpone his decision and reopen his recruitment to many of the nation’s top football programs.
After Anderson didn’t sign his letter of intent, Kiffin and USC came calling and the interest seems mutual between Anderson and USC. The all-around athlete and top recruit from the state of Ohio, according to Rivals.com, will reportedly visit campus this upcoming weekend.
Anderson is still considering West Virginia and Ohio State, but hopes to make his decision within the next couple of days, although he has until April 1 to make his decision final.
Anderson also played wide receiver during his days at Glenville Academic Campus in Cleveland, Ohio and is ranked 15th overall in the nation by Rivals.com.
USC’s class already includes a variety of four- and five-star wide receivers and defensive backs, and the addition of Anderson would improve an already highly ranked class for Kiffin and his coaching staff.
