Chris Lammons

Sophomore

Cornerback

5'10"/183 lbs.

Lauderhill, Fla.

Recruitment:

Lammons was ranked as the 21st best corner nationally in the class of 2014 and the 31st best overall player in the state of Florida. He fielded a variety of noteworthy offers including LSU and Alabama before committing to South Carolina.

College Career:

Lammons played in 10 games last season as a true freshman, starting the final seven of the season. Lammons made good on his freshman playing time, chipping in 21 tackles including a half tackle for loss. He had an impressive showing at Auburn with six tackles out of the secondary.

2015 Outlook:

Lammons is an athletic corner who can run with the best of them. His playing time in his freshman season will serve him well moving forward, as he continues to adjust to man-to-man coverage at the college level. Lammons looks to be one of several players who will benefit from an uncertain defensive depth chart, even though he will begin the season as a backup.

Trivia:

Despite having offers from Alabama and LSU on the table, neither school was South Carolina's main competition for Lammons. What non-SEC school was recruiting Lammons behind the Gamecocks?
