RB Lattimore now down to Gamecocks, 3 others

Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes running back Marcus Lattimore, possibly the top player at his position in the nation, has trimmed his college finalists from five to four.

Last time, it was North Carolina that got dumped. Now it’s Georgia.

After starting with 32 offers, Lattimore’s Final Four are South Carolina, Auburn, Penn State and Oregon.

If I had to guess, I’d give the Gamecocks a slight, slight lead over Auburn. But Lattimore isn’t giving out many clues.

At the Shrine Bowl, he said he would make his announcement on Feb. 2—the day before National Signing Day—at his church.

Lattimore has already taken official visits to Penn State and Auburn. He’s scheduled to visit Oregon Jan. 15 and South Carolina Jan. 22. He had been planning on visiting the ‘Dawgs Jan. 29, but that trip—and Georgia’s chances—have been deep-sixed.
