Visits are going well for Mack
Four-star wing Tevin Mack from Columbia (SC) Dreher has been making numerous visits recently with a few more yet to come. For Mack the trips are going well, and he is looking forward to the rest of his visit schedule. The 6-foot-5 Mack is one of the best scorers around, and with that he is now considering South Carolina, Clemson, Connecticut, VCU, Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, and Mississippi State. Mack’s first visit was to Georgia. His older brother played for Mark Fox at Nevada, and Mack has built a strong relationship with Fox for a while. Overall Mack said the visit went very well. “My first visit was to Georgia and I had a real good time there,” said Mack. “I got to meet the players and I didn’t really know any of them until the visit. Just hanging out with those guys a lot was fun, and we met at Coach Fox’s house, so it was a pretty fun time.” From there Mack checked out VCU, and said he had a good experience there as well. “It was a lot of fun up there,” noted Mack. “It is a little bit different because VCU was in the city. It was fun though. I went up there and met with the players and the coaches and the guys seemed really cool. Overall I had a real good time there.” Most recently Mack had a chance to stay in-state and check out Clemson. About the visit, Mack said, “I have been down there before, so I pretty much saw everything the last time, but this time I got to meet some more people. I met people in the sports management department because I want to major in that.” He continued, “Also I got to talk with the players and the coaches and they were telling me about the power of the ACC, and how it is the best basketball conference, and how I would fit in there.” To this point all of Mack’s visits have gone to schools in the south, but that will change this weekend when he makes a trip to Connecticut. “I’m looking forward to meeting the players and seeing the campus,” said Mack of UConn. “I’ve never been that far north before, so I am looking forward to seeing what it is like. Even though they offered me later than some schools, they were talking to me a lot since the end of July, so I have been talking to them for months and they are one of the top five programs in the country.” Mack will finish up his visit tour at South Carolina, a school right down the road from his house. “I will be going to South Carolina the weekend after Connecticut,” said Mack. “I think it will be fun a time because I am real familiar with their players already. Probably on that visit I will just meet some of the important people there that I don’t know, and it is right in my city so I know it will be a good time.” When it comes to making a decision, Mack has a firm plan in mind. “After I make all of my visits there are a few weeks until signing day, so I will probably decide before signing day and make a decision probably around late October,” explained Mack.
