Glenville's Smith and lattimore heading to Ohio State

CLEVELAND - It's become a yearly tradition, the Ohio State Buckeyes football program lands at least one recruit from the Glenville Tarblooders. 2014 is no different.

In fact Urban Meyer landed two recruits off of Ted Ginn Senior's Division two state runner-up squad.

The Buckeyes have landed defensive backs Erick Smith and Marshon Lattimore on Saturday. Both recruits made their announcements live on national television during the "U.S. Army All-American Bowl" in San Antonio, Texas.

Smith and Lattimore were members of the east squad for the game. Smith made his announcement first in front of friends, family and coach Ginn. Smith chose Ohio State over Michigan, Georgia Tech, Kentucky and Alabama.

Smith ended some of the suspense of Lattimore's decision by mentioning of their plans to attend Ohio State together. Lattimore, who will also play some wide receiver for the Buckeyes, chose Ohio State over Oregon and Alabama.

Smith and Lattimore will join former Tarblooders Devan Bogard, Christian Bryant, Cardale Jones, Chris Worley and Marcus Hall on the Ohio State roster.

Glenville has sent at least one player to Ohio State every year since 2002 including Ted Ginn Junior, Donte Whitner and former Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith.
