Marlboro County linebacker Lateek Townsend is in San Antonio for the U.S. Army All-American Game and says he will announce his college choice during the broadcast of the game Saturday on NBC.

Townsend said in an interview with Rivals.com that he's considering South Carolina, Clemson, Southern Cal, LSU and Florida.

He has taken official visits to USC and Southern Cal and unofficial visits to Clemson and Florida. He said he's not been contacted by Florida since Will Muschamp took over but is interested nontheless.

Townsend said he had not made his decision as of Sunday night and did not have a favorite. He added he had no preference about staying in-state or leaving the state.
