Top Junior RB Enjoyed Duke Visit

Marcus Lattimore, five-star running back from Duncan-Byrnes, S.C., is the top prospect for class of 2010 and holds more than 20 scholarship offers. Lattimore has returned from a visit with the Blue Devils.

"I have just returned home from Duke," said Marcus Lattimore. "I had a great time. It was not what I expected."

"I loved going to the basketball game. I loved meeting with the head coach [David Cutcliffe]. They put everything in perspective. They told me about how if I didn't make it pro I would still have my degree from Duke."

Lattimore sports offers from elite programs aross the country, and the Blue Devils made a big impression.

"Overall the visit was just great," he said. "I really can't describe it."

Lattimore will travel next Saturday to attend Florida State's Junior Day.
