ESPN.com says South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore will enter the 2013 NFL Draft, and an announcement is expected this week.

Here’s a portion of the report from ESPN.com:

Lattimore understands he may have to sit out this season, but has a goal of jogging and catching passes at the end of March for NFL executives and plans to visit with them at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.

Since the injury, Lattimore has spoken with other running backs who came back from knee injuries such as Willis McGahee, Frank Gore and Eddie George. Lattimore believes the time is right to enter the NFL draft, in part to have as long a professional career as possible.

Hopefully this young man makes a full recovery and has a shot to play in the NFL. He finished his career with 2,677 rushing yards and 38 touchdowns. In 2012, Lattimore rushed for 662 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Good luck, Marcus. We’re all behind you.
