Mack, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound cornerback from North Charleston (S.C.) Fort Dorchester, began hearing from UNC in the middle of his senior football season. The interest increased after the Shrine Bowl.
"I talk to Coach [Sam] Pittman and [Chuck] Pagano – I think I talk to Pagano a little more," Mack said. "They said they like my height and my speed."
Mack's reputation limited passes from being thrown in his direction during his senior season, but he still managed five interceptions as well as 35 tackles. He added three more tackles, including a tackle for a loss, during the Shrine Bowl.
According to Mack, UNC, like most schools, is awaiting his test scores before extending a scholarship offer. Rutgers is the only school that has offered.
Despite the uncertainty, Mack is favoring two schools.
"[My favorites] would probably be Auburn and North Carolina," Mack said. "They are both closer to home. And Auburn you know has a good football program and North Carolina is a program on the rise."
But if UNC were to offer, Mack's recruitment would change.
"They probably would be on top," Mack said. "I'd commit."
In addition to UNC, Mack will attempt to squeeze official visits to Auburn and Rutgers into the final few weeks before National Signing Day.
