Interest is coming in for Mack

He was a complete unknown heading into the spring, but the secret is beginning to get out about Tevin Mack.

One of the breakout stars of the spring was class of 2015 shooting guard Tevin Mack. The Columbia (SC) Dreher standout was excellent all spring long showing that he is one of the top scorers in the class. Now college coaches are beginning to find out about Mack.

He proved himself event after event as someone who can flat out put the ball in the basket, and overall Mack feels the spring went very well for him.

"I think I played pretty well at Augusta in the Ice Breaker and then I went to Pittsburgh and played pretty well and a lot of different letters and calls started coming in," Mack explained. "It has been a big spring for me so far."

While there is no doubt that Mack is someone who can really score the basketball, he says that he feels his game is very well rounded.

"I think the best thing I do is score," explained Mack. "Also I can rebound the ball, and I really like to play defense, especially on ball defense."

After a bit of a slow start recruiting wise things are beginning to pick up for Mack.

"The most recent thing I got was from Georgia," said Mack. "Also my AAU coach told me Houston called about me. I have gotten letters from Mississippi State, Wichita State, Georgia State, Nevada, UNC-Greensboro, and Missouri is interested as well."

Mack has a tie to Georgia as his brother played for Mark Fox when he was the head coach at Nevada, and he says hearing from the Bulldogs is big.

"That was big," said Mack of hearing from UGA. "It is an SEC school and it is kind of close to home, so it was big to hear from them."

One school that has been very active in recruiting him is Mississippi State, and the Bulldogs have indicated that a scholarship could be coming his way.

"Really I have talked to one of the coaches and they said they are going to keep watching me play and looking at me," said Mack of Mississippi State. "I think they might end up offering me a scholarship."

For now Mack is just taking things one step at a time, but he has some goals set for the rest of the summer.

"I want to at least get three scholarship offers by the end of the season, and I just want to show people that I am a really good player," said Mack.
