BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland Head Men's Basketball Coach Jimmy Patsos has announced the addition of former Baltimore City standout Jordan Latham to the Greyhounds program.
Latham, who played high school basketball at nearby City College High School, competed as a freshman at Xavier University. He will be eligible to compete for the Greyhounds in 2012-2013 after satisfying the NCAA year-in-residency requirement.
"We are happy to have Jordan join our program," Patsos said. "He is another Baltimore product who will bring a strong post presence for us when he steps on the court."
The 6-foot-8, 245-pound, forward earned All-Metro honors from The Baltimore Sun following his senior year at City where he averaged 17 points and nine rebounds per game for the Knights. He was joined on The Sun's All-Metro team by current Loyola guard Dylon Cormier.
Latham helped City earn its second-consecutive state title and a No. 1 ranking in Baltimore City as a senior. He also averaged 12 points, seven rebounds and five blocked shots as a junior.
At Xavier, Latham, who was ranked as the No. 94 prospect nationally by scout.com when he joined the Musketeers, saw action in 16 games for Xavier. The Musketeers went 24-8 and advanced to the NCAA Championships Second Round in 2010-2011.
