Mack says Michigan is 'Pretty Interested'

Fort Wayne (Ind.) Bishop Luers High 2016 wide receiver Austin Mack talks Michigan, his next visit to Ann Arbor, other schools of interest and more.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- Fort Wayne (Ind.) Bishop Luers High 2016 wide receiver Austin Mack put on a strong performance at the Pylon 7v7 at Youngstown State this past weekend.

Mack showcased why he is generating a lot buzz in his recruitment with multiple catches downfield as he starred for Indianapolis based AWP 7v7 team.

"I want to dominate as a person," Mack said on Saturday. "If we need to get a first down or we need some yards, they can throw it to me every time."

Currently, Mack holds offers from Indiana, Cincinnati and Toledo. He is also planning upcoming visits to Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Louisville. While Michigan has yet to offer, Mack says a strong performance at their camp this June could earn him an offer from the Maize and Blue.

"They are pretty interested," Mack said on the Wolverines. "I just have to go up there to their camp in June, and they will offer me. I just got to find my time and find the coaches and ball in front of them. "Last year I had to get myself on the map, and this year, they know about me. But they just want to make sure that I am right. I just got to make sure to those coaches that I am the right person for them and I'll get that offer."

And if the Wolverines were to offer?

"Michigan, first off – is huge for me," Mack said. "No. 1 thing, is it's close to family, it's close to home. Second off, it's great in academics. It's right up there with Notre Dame. Michigan's medical program is right up there, and I want to become a doctor hopefully. I believe if I get offered by Michigan, they will definitely be my top (offer). I already visited there. I went to a basketball game, not even a football game, and I was so impressed. So they would definitely be up there."

As far as what the four-star wide receiver is looking for on his visits:

"Mainly it's the academics," Mack said. "Second is how the coaches approach players. How would this school help me as a person. How it would help me grow as a young man. Obviously, I want to be on a winning team. But if it came down to it, it would be a decision me and my family would have make on what's the best choice for me."

Mack said he would like to make his commitment before the start of his senior season.
