The Glenville Trio is having second thoughts

Glenville teammates: Smith, Jones, Lattimore

The assumed plan was for Glenville High School teammates Erick Smith, Marcelys Jones and Marshon Lattimore to attend the same school, Ohio State. Jones committed to the Buckeyes long ago, and Smith and Lattimore were expected to join him by committing this Saturday when they announce their decisions at the Army All-American Bowl. That plan has now changed.

Smith, the 11th-ranked safety in the 247Composite rankings, canceled his upcoming announcement and says he plans to take official visits before committing to one school. The big news comes just days after Smith said his mind was made up and he was ready to announce.

The same goes for Lattimore. The No. 5 cornerback in high school football told 247Sports he thought about it in his hotel room and now he isn’t as sure as he was on Sunday. Kentucky isn’t high on Lattimore’s list, but his second thoughts imply the Glenville Trio is open to splitting up in college, after it appeared they would be a package deal.

Marcelys Jones, though currently committed to Urban Meyer at Ohio State, could flip his commitment to Kentucky as early as this weekend. Ohio State expects him on campus as an early enrollee next week, but Jones is far from certain he wants to be a Buckeye.

All eyes on these three guys Saturday because anything could happen. This could be an enormous weekend for Kentucky football.

    Unrelated news, but thought it was funny. Dan dakish of espn (however you spell it) just said that Sam Dekker “is as good a white kid as there is in the country”. I found this very funny.

    Not one of us ever considered UofL as an option. We knew Bridgewater was gone & Strong most likely would be too. Not that we would of even considered UofL if Bridgewater & Strong was going to be back anyways though.

    Well Smith said he wanted to take a visit to Michigan and Michigan State. No mention of Kentucky. So you can cross him off your list.

      And if Smith didn’t mention Kentucky, you can forget about Lattimore too. They are going to attend the same school.
