Marshawn Lloyd

USC RB commitment Marshawn Lloyd, interviewed at The Opening Finals by Kipp Adams of Georgia’s 247Sports site, said Georgia remains on him hard, and he said Georgia RB coach Dell McGee told him he’s not concerned with his Gamecock commitment because McGee does not believe he will stick to it.

He said he hopes to take an official visit to Georgia.
