I love USC football but I also love what Marcus Lattimore has meant and continues to mean for our program. I would tell him to declare early as long as he will be 100% by the combine.
Why? he is such a class young man and has done everything the right way. NFL RB's have a very short "shelf Life". I want him to be amazingly successful in the NFL. I want him to make tons of money. if he's 100% for the combine, he'll be a 1st round pick. You simply cannot turn that type money down and go back to college knowing another hit to his knee could ruin his carrer and earnings potential.
That's the counsel I would give my own son. That's the advice I give to Marcus.
Regardless of whether Marcus stays or goes, I can't wait to hear his announcement. If he stays, his reasons will be awesome to hear, yet likewise if he goes. It's great to have such an awesome young man here at USC!
