High school recruiting rankings: 

Did you know?: Latu was a top defensive end prospect coming out of high school and converted to tight end while at Alabama.

Scouting report: “Latu’s lean legs and angular frame aren’t made for drive blocking or neutralizing bigger players, but he does a nice job of sustaining move blocks in space. He changes route speed to open throwing windows over the first two levels. There are some issues with focus drops at times, but he plucks throws with good hand extension when possible.” — Lance Zierlein,
