Jacarthy Mack remains firm with Louisville

3-star prospect Jacarthy Mack of Lithoia (Ga) M.L. King High School pledged to Louisville in March. The standout linebacker/defensive end prospect gave CardinalAuthority.com on update on senior season and his commitment.

Since 3-star prospect Jacarthy Mack chose to become an early member of U of L's 2013 recruiting last March, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound linebacker has remained focused on accomplishing his goals.

As a junior, Mack helped Lithonia (Ga) M.L. King high school to a perfect 10-0 run through the regular season. His team advanced to the state quarterfinals before tasting defeat and he's hoping to avoid a similar result as a senior.

"I want to do whatever I can to help the team win," he said. "Our team goals are to stay undefeated and win state. My personal goals are to get 100 tackles and set a new sack record."

Current New England Patriot Jermaine Cunningham holds the current Georgia high school sack record with 25, which he established in 2005.

"I want to get more than 25 sacks and break Cunningham's record," Mack continued.

Mack and his teammates are off to another excellent start. Through five games, King remains undefeated and currently ranks 3rd in the Georgia 5A poll. Mack has recorded 28 tackles, including 12 for a loss and 9 sacks.

"We've been balanced," Mack said of this team's performance. "The defense has three shutouts and the offense has been putting points on the board."

While his play continues to attract attention from other schools, Mack told CardinalAuthority.com that his commitment to Louisville remains firm.

"I'm solid. I spoke with the coaches just a couple days ago. We have a really good relationship."

Mack, who also received offers from Kansas State, Rutgers, South Carolina, Wake Forest and others, visited Louisville for it's season-opener and left impressed.

"The fans really show a lot of love and it was a great game. They beat Kentucky pretty bad."

Mack is unsure when he'll make another trip to Louisville, but is looking forward to scheduling his official visit soon.
