"Everything is going good right now," Mack said. "I'm still pretty open right now. Auburn is standing pretty good. If something were to happen with A&M then they would be in good position. I'm going to try to get up there sometime this summer."
Keeping in contact with Auburn has meant talking plenty with defensive line coach Rodney Garner. The man who would be his position coach if he chose to play for the Tigers, Garner has already made a big impression on the physical defensive tackle and that's a big plus in his mind.
"I talked to Coach Garner and he wanted to wish my mother a Happy Mother's Day," Mack said of his recent chat. "I sent him a message but I guess he didn't see it. Things are pretty good with him right now. Getting messages like that is big, especially since he would be my position coach. Having a good relationship with him is definitely something important."
Mack is a physical defensive tackle that is also a load at running back
"I have a bayou picnic at LSU on the 31st of this month," Mack said. "June 13 I have an Alabama visit. I"m going to try to work Ole Miss and Auburn in after that."
Playing football in a town located just across the Texas line from Shreveport, La., Mack would be close to home at Texas A&M with a three-hour drive for his family to come see him play. With former Auburn defensive line coach Terry Price back at his alma mater and coaching the Aggies, Mack said the comfort level he has there is what keeps his commitment solid.
"It's just the family environment," Mack said of what drew him to the Texas A&M. "They were my first offer and they are always big on the SEC in Texas. I feel comfortable there."
