Schools from around the country have been heavily recruiting versatile lineman Khalil Latif and the rising senior has an impressive offer list.
Latif, whose stock is still on the rise, now holds offers from 12 schools, including UVa, Virginia Tech, Florida, Ohio State, Tennessee, Maryland, NC State, North Carolina and West Virginia. While he does not point to one leader, two schools appear to be in the driver’s seat for his services.
“Right now I would say my favorites are UVa and Tech,” said Latif. “That could change, but the thing I really like about those two is the location. It would be nice to stay in-state. They have good programs too.”
The 6-2, 276-pound prospect from Manchester High School in Midlothian, VA has not recently visited UVa or Virginia Tech but plans on making trips to both schools this summer.
“I think I’m going to try to visit both either in late July or early August,” he said. “I definitely want to before school starts. I haven’t been in touch with the coaches from either school too much recently either, but I have plenty of time to make a decision.”
Most schools are recruiting Latif as an offensive guard, and he is just fine with that.
“I would be okay with guard in college,” he said. “Other than location one of the big things for me is going to be playing time, so I’m fine with wherever the coaches want to put me.”
Aside from UVa and Virginia Tech, Latif is showing a lot of interest in Maryland, NC State, Ohio State and Florida. He plans on making a decision after his senior season.
