Marcus Lattimore: Reluctant Superstar

Marcus Lattimore is a bit incredulous as to how he got from there to here. “I never, never thought it would be like this,” he said after a weightlifting session during which he squatted 435 pounds. “It just happened.” “I grew up playing with all of these guys, and I never was the star player,” he said. College recruiting analysts disagree. He is listed as a five-star player by Rivals.com and Scout.com. Lattimore has had the luxury of learning from former Byrnes players how to handle being a nationally acclaimed recruit. (The State)
