Some Friday Football Notes

RB Marcus Lattimore and WR Nick Jones of Byrnes, QB Dylan Thompson of Boiling Springs and DB Victor Hampton of Darlington were among the top prospects on hand for USC’s game last night against Ole Miss.

Lattimore has made numerous official visits to USC and by all accounts had another positive experience. Lattimore met the team as the players left the field and joined them in the locker room celebration. Jones was said to also have a good time at the game. Thompson is a USC commitment and remains firm.

Hampton is a former Florida commitment who transferred to Darlington from Independence High in Charlotte. One source said Hampton was positive and complimentary about the Gamecocks.

USC commitment OL Eric Mack of Calhoun County may take an unofficial visit to Clemson Saturday for the TCU game along with some teammates. The trip likely will depend on the weather. Clemson is making a strong push for Mack, according to a source.

Mack also is giving Auburn strong consideration again after taking an official visit there last weekend. “They got his attention,” the source said. Mack plans to visit Auburn again for the Alabama game if his team is not in the playoffs.
