We're just a month and a day away from National Signing Day and the 2014 recruiting cycle is winding down as many teams are putting the finishing touches on their recruiting classes.

Urban Meyer and his staff picked up a huge commitment this afternoon as Cleveland (OH) Glenville athlete Marshon Lattimore ended his recruitment after committing to Ohio State at today's Army-All American game. He becomes the 21st member of the "Dream 14" recruiting class and the second today joining safety Erick Smith.

He has been a Buckeye lean for well over a year, but like most players who come out of Glenville, he waited until the end of the recruiting process to make his college decision official. He is the third Glenville player to join the 2014 class along with Marcelys Jones who committed to the Bucks on Christmas of 2012 and Erick Smith who committed in the second quarter of the game.

Lattimore is one of the best overall pure athletes in the 2014 class as a whole and has the ability to excel on both sides of the ball. While he could be very effective playing on offense in the slot, it's very likely he's going to start his career in Columbus on the defensive side of the ball at cornerback.

There have been rumors that Lattimore would head from San Antonio to Columbus after the game to enroll at OSU for the spring semester, but that appears to be pretty unlikely.

The 6-foot-1-inch, 175 pound athlete also held offers from Alabama, Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon, UCLA, USC, and many other top programs.

Land-Grant Holy Land will try to sync up with Lattimore soon to get the low down on his commitment and Army Bowl experience, but for now check out some of his highlights:
