Former South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore announced on Wednesday that he will retire from Football at the age of 23. Lattimore announced the news himself on Twitter:
Lattimore said he will return to South Carolina, where he majored in public health, to complete his degree. South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier said Lattimore will always have a place at the university.
Spurrier said he, athletic director Ray Tanner or university president Harris Pastides could find a position for Lattimore after football. The coach says Lattimore was among South Carolina's most popular and well-respected players ever.
