Marcus Lattimore drops Penn State

Updated: 10:10 p.m.

Marcus Lattimore, regarded as one of the top two running back prospects in the 2010 recruiting class, has reportedly dropped Penn State from consideration. He has apparently notified both Penn State and Oregon that both schools are now out. South Carolina and Auburn are Lattimore's final two.

If Lattimore follows through with this decision to drop Penn State, it would really put a crunch on the Nittany Lions' recruiting over the next few weeks. Joe Paterno was supposed to visit Lattimore--a very rare in-home meeting by Paterno--on Jan. 28. It does seem a bit surprising that Lattimore would cut a Penn State at this stage. College football's all-time winningest head coach is willing to travel a thousand miles for Lattimore.

Until this is confirmed by at least one more media source, Penn State fans can hold out a little sliver of hope that Lattimore will still give Paterno and the Nittany Lions a chance.
