Mack had already been regarded as one of the top players in the Lone Star State, so seeing his name among the tops in the country wasn't a big surprise. However, it still gave him a great feeling knowing that all of his hard work had resulted in him being ranked as a five-star prospect and the No. 3 overall player in the country. It also gives him motivation to continue that hard work.
"I felt really good when I saw that I was ranked that high," Mack said. "It was definitely another reason why I will continue to work hard."
Mack announced on Twitter his most recent top five of LSU, Texas A&M, TCU, Clemson and Texas. He went on to say what he likes about each program.
"(I like) LSU because they are a great D-line school. A&M is in the SEC in Texas, TCU because I like Coach Patterson, Clemson because early playing time and Texas because of coach Bo Davis," Mack said.
Mack made a few visits over the summer to various programs and although he doesn't have a set schedule for games he wants to attend, he knows what schools he would like to see.
"No games yet, but more than likely an LSU game, TCU and an Alabama game," Mack said of schools he may visit this fall.
As for the TCU-LSU battle, will the 5-star be in attendance?
"I'm not sure right now, I will have to see," Mack finished.
