Lattimore: "I Can See That They Like Me"

Thursday saw Byrnes RB Marcus Lattimore receive his first scholarship offer. In what would appear to the first of many offers for Lattimore the 2010 prospect talked about what it felt like to get his first offer and what his status is now that it has all set in for him. Come inside for all the details.

It's been a whirlwind 24 hours for 2010 Byrnes RB Marcus Lattimore. The budding star received his first college scholarship offer and will take the field tonight with his Byrnes squad to take on Mauldin High.

"It feels real good to get the offer. They are in my top 5 right now." Lattimore said about his first scholarship offer that from the Clemson Tigers on Thursday. "I appreciate them a lot."

When asked about getting the offer from the Tigers so early on in the process and if it would impact how he felt about them he replied, "It really does before I wasn't really considering them but now I can see that they like me."

With it being so early in his recruitment we had to pose the question if there was any chance that he'd give an early commitment given the right situation. "I'm going to wait because I have to look into what I want to major in when I get to college too."

Lattimore says his top 5 list in no particular order are LSU, Florida State, West Virginia, Clemson, and South Carolina.
