Indiana Hoosier receiver Cody Latimer will forego his senior season in Bloomington and entry the 2014 NFL draft. Latimer finishes his career at IU as a two time All-Big Ten selection with 135 receptions, 2042 yards, and 17 touchdowns. 2013 was Latimer's best year statistically as he put up over 1,000 yards receiving and 9 scores. Latimer was also a major player of IU's special teams unit.
The Hoosiers will have big shoes to fill in 2014 with the losses of Duwyce Wilson, Kofi Hughes, and Latimer. Coach Kevin Wilson has his eyes on several big name recruits in particular 4-Star receiver Dominique Booth who will commit to either IU or Missouri tomorrow. While his leaving early for the NFL draft, Latimer's rise up the ranks should help give Kevin Wilson another tool in recruiting.
