Mack Sorts Through Recruiting Process

Myles Mack has a new high school this season. Is the Top 100 point guard the verge of reaching a decision?

Now that the summer is over and in a few weeks, Jersey City (N.J.) St. Anthony point guard Myles Mack will start over at his new school.

The 5-foot-11 Top 100 prospect played three seasons at Peterson Catholic until the school closed last year.

Mack's senior years begins Sept. 13 under the tutelage of hall of famer Bob Hurley. Following a storied AAU career with the Playaz, Mack has few regrets. "It went pretty well, but not what I expected'" Mack said. "We didn't win any tournaments."

Mack likes to win and by now he's used to it. Blessed with a quick trigger and an accurate jump shot, Mack is now a target of a host of big schools. Last summer, they were all front and center but one school and one coach in particular was most visible. Mike Rice is trying to rebuild at Rutgers and he caught Mack's eye last month.

"He was at every one of my games at Peach Jam," Mack said. Mack is set to visit Rutgers unoffibialy Sept. 2. He wil; see Seton Hall at some point this week and plans on taking an unofficial to Miami following his trip to Rutgers.

Rutgers, Miami, Boston College, Connecticut, Marquette and DePaul are strong, according to Mack. Virginia, Penn State and St. John's are in the mix.

Mack will decide when he knows and is comfortable. That could be in a week or a month from now. He knows point guards are flying off the board but he wants to be sure of his choice before making the move.
