It is a potentially very good rally for new Scarlet Knights coach Mike Rice considering a few months ago the 5-foot-9, 155-pound Mack told ScarletReport.com he was not looking at Rutgers.
Now, when asked how much Mack likes the Scarlet Knights, he responded, "A lot. I like the coaching staff and one of my (AAU team) Playaz teammates committed there. … The interest is higher than it was before."
"I talk to (Randall) a lot," said Mack, Scout.com's No. 11 point guard in the 2011 class. "We're very close. I talk to him every day."
Mack said his change in mentality toward Rutgers came after discussion with several people who urged him to give Rice and his staff an opportunity to sell their vision of rebuilding the program.
"Somebody talked to me about the new coaching staff," Mack said. "Now, I know them very well, (assistant) coach David Cox and coach Rice."
Mack plans to trim his list in the next few days, and it hoping to make a decision next month. He has been to Rutgers and received the tour of the campus and the academic presentation. His plans are to visit a few other schools as well
