Lathan Ransom attended Salpointe Catholic High School and was rated a 4-star prospect by 247 Sports with a scout's rating of 0.929, going unranked by ESPN. Following high school, Ransom opted to join Ohio State after being heavily recruited.

In 2020 as a freshman Ransom saw action in 6 games and played a total of 62 snaps at Cornerback for the Buckeyes. He recorded just 7 tackles, no assists, while adding one stop. In coverage Ransom notched up one pass breakup, no interceptions, and QB rating when targetted of 92.7.

As a sophomore in 2021 he played in 13 games and logged 435 snaps for the Buckeyes. He made 24 tackles, 8 assists, and had 6 stops. In coverage he totaled 4 pass breakups, no interceptions, and a disapointing QB rating when targetted of 116.4.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Can get up on the line of scrimmage and deliver a solid punch early in routes, then use that quickness to shadow, or back off and close quickly when the ball comes out
  • Great on route recognition and has click-and-close ability
  • Has the quick, agile feet and fluid hips to mirror quickness and change direction underneath. But he’s at his best facing the action.
  • On the boundary, Ransom has the strong core and hips to latch on to receivers and escort them to the sideline.
  • He’s long and strong enough in his core to steer receivers to the sideline without getting grabby with his hands when playing inside technique.
  • Tracks the ball well and has the natural ball skills for forcing turnovers.
  • Flashes good ball skills. Ransom has the fluidity and change-of-direction ability to mirror quicker receivers underneath.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
  • Needs to develop a better understanding of route combinations and better overall vision.
  • Has only average long speed and body flexibility.
