No. 21 soph Lattin enrolls in Spanish academy

ESPNHS - Texas

After a strong summer with Houston Select AAU, Khadeem Lattin decided he’d play his sophomore season at Canarias Basketball Academy in Spain.

Lattin, a center who is ranked No. 21 in the ESPNU 25, was originally enrolled at Westbury Christian (Houston).

“I think it’s a great opportunity for him,” said Lattin’s former teammate at Westbury L.J. Rose, a senior point guard who will sign with Baylor this week. “I know he’ll have a great experience over there, and I know his mom wants what’s best for him.”

Lattin’s mother, Monica Lamb, played with the Houston Comets from 1998-2000 and his grandfather, David “Big Daddy” Lattin, starred for Texas Western’s 1966 national championship team, which was featured in the movie “Glory Road.”

Kansas, Texas, Baylor and Texas A&M, among others, are all hotly pursuing Khadeem Lattin.
