Jordan Latham, a 6'8 power forward, announced today that he's decided to re-commit to Xavier. Latham, the 17th-best power forward and 81st overall player on the Rivals150 for the class of 2010, originally backed off of his commitment after the departure of Sean Miller.
This is a great signing for the Muskies and Latham will blend well with Frease and the many great guards. Latham said Mack and assistant Bino Ranson were integral in his decision to recommit to the program. Now that Mack has recruited a top 100 recruit others who backed away from Xavier and lost interest over the past couple months may start to gradually regain there interest.
In 2008, Latham was regarded by Rivals as the 10th-best power forward and the 44th-best player overall in his class. Latham was sidelined by a left knee injury this past spring which led to a drop in his overall ranking.
