Lattimore one of 18 Gamecocks set for pro timing day

COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) -- Injured running back Marcus Lattimore is one of more than a dozen players slated to take part in the South Carolina football program's annual pro timing day at Williams-Brice Stadium on Wednesday.

Draft-eligible Gamecock players are scheduled to work out for NFL coaches and scouts.

Last week, Lattimore said he plans to talk with interested NFL teams, perhaps catch a few passes and lift weights at the yearly pre-draft workout.

Lattimore injured his right knee against Tennessee last October. He had surgery to repair torn ligaments and has rehabbed in Pensacola, Fla., since giving up his senior year this past December. Lattimore says he's jogged some but won't be cleared to run all-out sprints for another month.

The players will be tested in the standing broad jump, vertical jump, and the bench press in the USC weight room. Measurments in the 40-yard dash, the short shuttle and the three-cone drill will take place on the field at Williams-Brice Stadium.

Individual workouts will also happen in groups when players break off into defensive backs, defensive/offensive line; wide receivers/running backs/tight ends, linebackers and kickers.

Other players expected to particpate Wednesday include Akeem Auguste, Reginald Bowens, Justice Cunningham, Aldrick Fordham, Qua Gilchrist, DeVonte Holloman, Damario Jeffery, Byron Jerideau, T.J. Johnson, Kenny Miles, D.L. Moore, Ace Sanders, Quin Smith, D.J. Swearinger, Devin Taylor, Shaq Wilson and Adam Yates.

Wednesday's time day event starts at 10am at Williams-Brice Stadium and is open to the public. However, fans are not permitted to bring video cameras.

If bad weather arises, the field activities will be moved to the indoor practice facility. Due to space limitations, that workout would not be open to the general public, agents or families.
