Reports are that some of the big name recruits that were in town over the weekend had good visits and plan to sign with the Gamecocks. First of all, some sources have indicated that Marcus Lattimore has said that he plans to commit. Lattimore denies these reports, but you have to admit that his denials have the smell of Marcus just trying to have fun and wanting to wait until the day before signing day to make everything official. I'm fairly confident that Marcus will be a Gamecock in the end.
The Gamecocks also got good news from a couple of verbally committed players that were considering other schools. Eric Mack says he is done. Mack had been hotly pursued by Auburn and Florida, and he had indicated that his commitment wasn't firm. Now it is. Trammell Williams also firmed up his commitment over the weekend.
