Mack Talks Upcoming Auburn Visit

Texas A&M got a huge commitment from Daylon Mack in October. The big-time defensive tackle remains committed to the Aggies, but he's visiting Auburn this weekend.

Gladewater (Tx.) 2015 defensive tackle Daylon Mack has racked up 20 offers en route to a No. 3 state ranking and No. 9 Scout300 ranking. Six of the seven SEC West programs are among those offers, including Texas A&M, where he committed in October.

But as's Jason Caldwell reported last week, Mack plans to visit Auburn this weekend.

The 6-foot-1 1/2, 306-pound Mack reiterated Wednesday evening that he remains a "strong commitment" to Texas A&M. He explained his reasoning for the visit to "I did commit pretty early, especially to have this many offers, and so the only schools I really visited were TCU, Texas, and Texas A&M," Mack said. "Maybe it seemed like not a smart idea, but I feel like it was a good idea because I feel like that's where I'm gonna end up in the end."

Nevertheless, Mack added that Auburn's success caught his attention. As reported previously, Mack reached out to Auburn.

"They're the SEC champs. They have a great D-line history. Coming off the season they just had, the direction of the program they have is fantastic," Mack said. "It being my birthday weekend, it seemed like a good time to go down and visit."

Auburn joins Florida, Stanford, and USC as Mack's most recent offers. He also said Ohio State has shown interest in him lately.

But he emphasized that he does not plan to visit anywhere other than Auburn or College Station this spring.

Mack, who had 35 tackles for loss and eight forced fumbles as a junior, is a headliner in the Aggie 2015 recruiting class that includes seven players rated in the Scout300, including fellow East Texans in safeties Larry Pryor and Justin Dunning.
