"I'm a Gator," Mack told Scout.com. The commitment will move the Gators into the Scout.com Top 25 range for recruiting class rankings as Mack is a likely Top 100 prospect the next time around.
The 6-foot-4 shooting guard out of Statesville Christian took his time and had a rough ordeal in terms of reaching a final decision.
"I was very cautious about it," Mack said. "I have to be there the next four years. I just felt Florida was the best place for me. It was a very tough decision. I just felt it in my heart." Mack said his call to Virginia Tech was a tough one but the Gators were the better match for him.
"In talking to Billy Donovan, they're looking for a combo guard that can play defense, shoot and drive and do a little bit of everything."
Mack said that he'd be perfectly happy playing a supporting role as a freshman. "I'd probably say I'll come off the bench and play my role. I'll do what the coach wants me to."
In the end, expect Mack's role to be a scoring threat for the Gators as he's capable of the big scoring number just like the 41 he hung Monday night.
