Marshon Lattimore to announce at the Army Bowl

Marshon Lattimore at the Army Bowl - Wescott Eberts (SB Nation)

The four-star cornerback maintained that he has no favorites.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The top player in the state of Ohio according to the 247Sports Composite rankings will come off the board on Saturday, as Glenville (Ohio) cornerback Marshon Lattimore will announce his decision at the US Army All-American Bowl.

While the 6'0, 175-pounder told SB Nation Recruiting that he has no favorites, he said that he's still considering Alabama, Louisville, Ohio State, Oregon, and USC.

Of those schools, Lattimore has only taken official visits to see the Buckeyes and the Crimson Tide.

The Alabama official visit provided a unique opportunity for Lattimore.

"It was nice to see the coaches outside of football and get to know them as people without having football involved," he said.

Lattimore had a chance to talk to some former players during his visit to Columbus, but otherwise compared it to Alabama.

Though the four-star cornerback admitted that he grew up a Buckeyes fan, he said that it would not impact his decision because he didn't have all the information about the coaching staff and overall feel of the school when he was a child.

Feeling at home and getting along with the coaching staff and players were all factors that Lattimore said he would consider as his makes his decision.

It looks like Saturday has the potential to become a big day for the Buckeyes with four-star cornerback Erick Smith also announcing his decision without taking any more official visits -- Lattimore's Crystal Ball predictions are unanimous in believing that he will pick Ohio State. Smith and Lattimore are high school teammates.

Lattimore did leave the door open to take one or both of his remaining official visits after announcing on Saturday, so the coaching staffs as Louisville, Oregon and USC may not give up just because the Glenville product announces his decision on Saturday.
