It's a busy week for Byrnes RB Marcus Lattimore. Not only is he preparing with his team for another state championship game, he's got a line of recruiters scheduled to make in person visits with him.
Lattimore said North Carolina will be at his school and his home today. Penn State will be in on Tuesday, Georgia Wednesday and Oregon Thursday. Auburn coaches plan to be at the state championship game Saturday. USC recruiter Jay Graham will have an in home visit with Lattimore Sunday.
Lattimore said nothing has changed with his six finalists at this point though he did leave open the possibility of an official visit with USC in place of North Carolina. Lattimore has taken officials to Auburn and Penn State. He is scheduled to visit Oregon, North Carolina and Georgia in January. He's taken several unofficial visit to USC including this past Saturday for the Clemson game.
"The stadium was rocking and I loved it," Lattimore said. "They ran the ball 58 times and that really impressed me a lot. I got time to speak with coach Spurrier and he was just telling me that he needs me. That made me feel good."
Never miss a local story.
Lattimore said the plan right now is for him to announce a decision at his church the day before signing day. He said there is no frontrunner at this point. "I really would tell you, but I really don't," he said.
As for what he's looking for in a school, Lattimore said, "It's going to be how they use their running back this year. And basically how comfortable I felt there, with the coaches and the players basically in that city."
