Emerging junior wide receiver Cody Latimer was honored as Indiana University's 2013 Most Valuable Player at the Hoosiers annual football banquet on Sunday.

Latimer, who faces a tough decision on whether to turn pro or return to Bloomington for his senior year, became the fifth Hoosier to surpass 1,000 yards in a season and his total of 1,096 ranks third all-time at IU. His 72 receptions are fourth and his nine scores are ninth. He possesses nice size, dependable hands, and run after the catch skills which could make him a potential second day NFL pick, according to The Slant Draft Guide, www.theslantdraftguide.com

The Dayton, Ohio product stands among the leaders on IU's career records lists. Latimer’s 135 catches and 2,152 yards are seventh, and his 17 touchdowns are tied for fifth. The Dayton, Ohio, native recorded five 100-yard games in 2013, which is tied for third in a single season, and owns seven in his career, which is tied for fourth.

Latimer finished third in the Big Ten in yards (25th nationally), fourth in receptions (T-32nd) and tied for fourth in TDs (T-28th).

Extra Points: Highly regarded Indianapolis Pike High School WR Dominique Booth announced via Twitter that he had signed financial aid agreement with Indiana. However, that doesn't mean that Booth is signed, sealed, and delivered for the Hoosiers. It is a binding commitment by the school, but not the athlete.

Booth, who plans to graduate from high school this month, is considering both IU and Missouri. He plans to enroll in January at the school of his choice. Landing Booth would continue some positive recruiting momentum for the Hoosiers, who may need a wide receiver if Latimer elects to forego his final year.
