Stephen Davis plays a role in Lattimore's decision
Davis also played a role in today's announcement. Immediately prior to Lattimore announcing a decision, Davis brought to him a cloth bag. Lattimore first pulled out an Auburn hat. After a momentary pause, Lattimore pulled a second hat, this one fashioned with a USC logo, to complete the gag.
Davis said he didn't advise Lattimore to choose a particular school, but provided some insights that resonated with the young tailback.
``My heart is at Auburn. I love Auburn," Davis said. ``The only thing that I regret about playing at Auburn is that a lot of people from here didn't get to see me play. I told him that."
