More than a dozen schools visited Grand Street during spring evaluation, Rutgers included. Mack told Scout that the Scarlet Knights lead in his recruitment.
“Being at Rutgers on some visits has been nice,” Mack said. “It’s comfortable, and right now I can say that’s my No. 1 school.”
Rutgers offered Mack during its 2014 7-on-7 camp.
“Me and coach [Kyle] Flood have a good relationship,” Mack said. “It seems like a lot of coaches say stuff just to get you in their school. When I’ve been around him, it seemed like he kept his word and followed what he was saying.”
Offensive coordinator Ben McDaniels and receivers coach Anthony Campanile are also involved in Mack’s recruitment. Rutgers has two Grand Street players joining the program in June in defensive tackle Kamaal Seymour and walk-on defensive back Alex Badine.
“I like coach McDaniels a lot,” he said. “The biggest part about that is they’re family, and it’s always a growing process. They’re learning from the Big Ten season, and they’re coming back for more.”
“It’s been an amazing process,” Mack said. “The recruiting process has been unbelievable. I have my sister at Rutgers and my teammates going there. They’re all encouraging me to go through recruitment and make the best decision for me. Yes, they’re telling me about Rutgers, but they want me to pick a school for my own reasons.”
