Lattimore referenced his short playing career with the Buckeyes. The corner played just one full season for Ohio State. Lattimore redshirted his freshman year, and played just seven games during his redshirt freshman year due to injury.
Lattimore fully recovered from a series of hamstring injuries to earn a starting spot on the Buckeyes roster for the 2016 season. The corner definitely made his only full season as a Buckeye count. Lattimore racked up 41 tackles, including one tackle for loss.
The redshirt sophomore also intercepted four passes, returning one for a touchdown. The corner also defended nine passes during the 2016 season.
It’s a bittersweet day for Ohio State fans, as the Buckeyes exodus to the NFL continues.
