Mack talks offers

It has taken a little while, but college coaches are beginning to figure out how good Tevin Mack is.

Four-star wing Tevin Mack is starting to build more buzz. The 6-foot-5 scorer has had a very good AAU season with the Carolina Wolves. Recently a pair of high-major offers came his way, and several other schools are picking up the interest.

For Mack it started in the spring with strong performance after strong performance, and he feels he has continued that during the month of July.

"I think I played pretty good in Aiken at Peach State and we had a good run," said Mack. "After that I had a good bit of coaches tell me they liked what they saw, and many of them came out to Milwaukee where I played well again, and I picked up an offer from Georgia."

Recruiting wise now the offers are coming in from all levels.

"I now have offers from Georgia, Virginia Tech, Houston, Miami-Ohio, Jacksonville, and Stephen F. Austin," said Mack.

Along with those schools, Virginia Commonwealth, Mississippi State, Georgia State, Nevada, and Wichita State have all shown varying degrees of interest.

Georgia boss Mark Fox coached Mack's older brother at Nevada, and Mack was excited to get the offer from the Bulldogs.

"It felt good," said Mack of the offer. "I was in the airport when Coach Fox called me. He was talking to me and telling me that he liked how I played, and just that he wanted to offer me a scholarship to go there. I was real happy about that."

Mack's other high-major offer is from Virginia Tech, and it came as a bit of a surprise.

"I didn't even know they were looking at me until after they offered me," said Mack. "They were at one of my games in Aiken, and they told me they liked the way I played and offered me a scholarship. They have told me about their program, and it is a school I am looking into."

As of now Mack has no specific visit plans for after July, but there are a few places that he hopes to see.

"I don't have any plans yet, but I am trying to visit Georgia and maybe a few other schools," said Mack. "I think VCU is trying to get me to come up there as well, so I will probably visit them."
