    Lathan Ransom Commits to Ohio State

    In case you clicked into this article via social media or before you saw much of the other site (I could only hope for that much enthusiasm for the Hurry Up), four-star Arizona safety Lathan Ransom has committed to Ohio State.

    Ransom is a physical force at his position and, when considering the top coverage safeties in the country, he has to be considered the best. His ball tracking skills and the way he reads an offense's passing strategy this early in his development is second to none.

    One play that stands out was one he made at The Opening Finals, when he tracked a ball near the first pylon on the right side of the field with great closing speed. He leapt to challenge the receiver and Elias Ricks and took the ball away from both of them. His disregard for his body for the sake of making plays in coverage will be what separates him form other defensive backs in the Big Ten.
    He can also certainly contribute in stopping the run and is a physical defender that any opposing player needs to account for.

    Ransom's commitment pushes Ohio State's recruiting class to No. 2 in the country, passing LSU and Alabama.

    Lathan Ransom
    Lathan Ransom makes big plays, and he always has. He made five interceptions as a sophomore and added six as a junior. He can do nearly anything on the field, as he also takes returns and catches passes on offense. Salpointe Catholic will need that from Ransom again, as well as a good performance by his five-star teammate Bijan Robinson if it wants to win the state title that it lost to Saguaro in 2018.

    First Game: vs. Dobson, Aug. 30

    Game to Watch: at Sahuaro, Oct. 4

    That’s right – it’s Sahuaro, not Saguaro. Salpointe Catholic isn’t scheduled to play Saguaro, but it met Sahuaro twice last season and won both times. Sahuaro went 10-3 last season and met Salpointe Catholic late in the postseason. It will be Salpointe’s biggest hurdle to get where it wants to be in 2019.
