Marcus Lattimore making big splash

By Chris Low

COLUMBIA, S.C. –- I don’t see a lot of hype with South Carolina freshman running back Marcus Lattimore.

Rather, I see a lot of substance.

He just scored his second touchdown, and the Gamecocks are pulling away from Southern Miss in the second quarter.

Lattimore’s 7-yard touchdown run put South Carolina ahead 24-3, and what was so impressive about his run was the cut he made to get into the end zone. He has great vision and anticipates extremely well.

You knew he had great acceleration, but it looks like to me that he’s also going to be terrific down around the goal line.
