ESPN: Marcus Lattimore to take shot at the NFL
After suffering serious knee injuries in each of the past two seasons, South Carolina's Marcus Lattimore isn't going to take any more chances in college football.
Lattimore plans to enter the NFL draft, ESPN's Joe Schad reported on Monday.
At this point in his career, having undergone surgeries to repair torn ligaments in both knees, Lattimore didn't have any easy options. It would have been a gamble to stay in school for another year. It's also a gamble to declare for the NFL draft when he's not going to be 100 percent.
