Coaches are knocking on Mack's door

Louisiana is not as deep at the receiver position for 2003 as it has been in the past but one of the state's top wideout prospects has recently seen his stock rise since he made a qualifying test score.<br><br> Chijuan Mack (6-2, 190, 4.4) of Woodlawn-Baton Rouge has the size and speed to play major college football but his academics were holding him back. All of that should change now that he is on schedule to graduate as a full academic qualifier.

"He is on pace to qualify," said Woodlawn coach Dru Nettles. "With the classes he is taking and the sliding scale they can use he is on schedule to qualify. He has the ACT score but he needs to make a couple of A's in some classes he is taking."

Mack is visiting Tulane this weekend and he is set to go to Oklahoma State next weekend. The Cowboys offered him a scholarship on Monday and Indiana is coming down to visit him early next week.

LSU showed interest early in the recruiting process but his grades were a big deterrent. There has been some indication that the Tigers could get back in on him but nothing has developed yet.

"Not that I know of," Nettles said. "I heard they were going to come back on him but I haven't heard anything from them. The coaches said they offered some receivers from Florida and they are waiting on them right now."
