The Cats have made the final seven of a 3-star running back out of Melbourne, Florida. Lavonte Valentine is the number 13 all-purpose back in the class of 2018. An all-purpose back is one who has success as both a runner and a receiver. He currently does hold an offer from the Cats. His final seven includes: LSU, Florida, Louisville, South Carolina, USC, Notre Dame and Kentucky. Right now, his Crystal Ball projections are set at 50% Florida and 50% South Carolina, but as we have learned, you can never count out Eddie Gran and company.
