Mack has "great" visit with TCU coaches

TCU coaches visited with Gladewater (TX) 5-star DT Daylon Mack on Thursday.

TCU has already built a very impressive 2015 class; with 22 commitments the Frogs’ sit at No.18 in the latest Scout.com team rankings. In fact, the class is on pace to finish the highest ever under head coach Gary Patterson.

But, it’s not quite finished.

The TCU coaching staff continues pursuit of a few select prospects on their list. While landing each player would give a boost, none would be larger than securing a commitment from one of the nation’s premier players; Daylon Mack.

TCU’s in-home visit with the 5-star proved how much the Frogs would love to add the dynamic defensive lineman to the fold. They sent an arsenal of coaches to Gladewater on Thursday night; head coach Gary Patterson, defensive line coach Dick Bumpas, offensive line coach Jarrett Anderson and running backs coach Curtis Luper.

Mack has built a strong relationship with the coaching staff throughout his recruiting process. He reiterated that fact following Thursday’s visit.

"It went great!” Mack said via text on his in-home visit. “Me and my family think real highly of the TCU staff."

Through two years of getting recruited by the staff, there isn’t much Mack hasn’t heard from the TCU coaching staff. That could be said about other programs as well, but Mack admits TCU has one thing that stands out above the others.

"(There was) nothing in particular. But, TCU has the best recruiting sales pitch I've heard throughout my whole process,” he said. “I really like being around them."

And what’s the secret pitch?

"Haha, can't really say what the pitch is but it's a good one,” he said. “Trust me!"

Mack will visit TCU unofficially on January 30th. It will be his last visit before signing day. Will Patterson and Co. reel in their first five-star prospect? They’ll have to wait until signing day to find out.
