South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore has announced he will enter the 2013 NFL Draft. An official announcement will be made this week, and possibly Wednesday.
Lattimore is currently rehabbing his knee after suffering an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament and lateral collateral ligament in October. He says that rehabbing with NFL team doctors will help him recover the fastest. Lattimore isn’t on crutches anymore, either.
Lattimore also missed half of the 2011 season, but began the 2012 season. Lattimore is 6’0″ and 218 pounds, and burst on the scene his freshman year after rushing for 1,197 yards and 17 touchdowns while averaging 4.8 yards per carry. Before he got injured this season, he rushed for 662 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Lattimore has rushed for 2,677 yards, and 38 touchdowns in his career at South Carolina.
