SG Tevin Mack Profile

Dreher High School junior Tevin Mack was on the Clemson campus for the football games against Georgia and Florida State.

"It was good. I loved the atmosphere," he said of the Florida State visit. "The game wasn't that good, because of the score. But it was a pretty good atmosphere. I got a chance to meet some of the new basketball players I didn't know before."

As for the Georgia trip, "It was a better game. It was more close and more intense."

Mack's been to Clemson several times over the years. He's been to Brad Brownell's elite camp for each of the last two summers.

"I think they know what they're talking about. They pretty much know the game pretty well," Mack said. "They do a lot of teaching. They'll probably develop you pretty well. That's why I think, if I was to go there, I would develop really well, and get bigger, stronger, stuff like that." Mack hears regularly from Brownell and Earl Grant, who runs the point on Mack's recruitment for the Tigers.

"It's cool. Because, actually, coach Brownell came down to the school and watched me work out during the fall, so we started building a relationship," Mack said. "He texts me sometimes, but it's most coach Grant texting. It's probably about everyday. He's keeping up with me, making sure I'm doing the right things in school and on the court."

The 6-foot-4, 185-pound prospect likes the direction the Clemson hoops program is headed.

"I feel like they've got a bunch of good young guys on the team, a bunch of freshmen, a bunch of redshirt freshmen and sophomores," he said. "They're pretty young. So, if they stick together, stick together for a few more years, they could end up being pretty good."

Georgia, Virginia Tech and several mid-major schools have offered.

"I think Clemson is close. Also, VCU will probably offer me soon, too," Mack said.

Regarding an offer, what's the message from the Clemson coaches?

"They told me that they're going to offer me, but they want my mom to be there with me," Mack said. "Because, every time I went I'm always with my teammates or something like that. We just go together.

"My mom didn't really have time to go, so she's going to have to come up there and visit the campus, sit down and talk with them. Then, they'll offer me."

Mississippi State, Georgia Tech, Florida State and Virginia are also in contact.

As a sophomore at Dreher, Mack averaged 20 points, eight rebounds and three assists. Top Stories
