Huge commitment: Eric Mack pulls the trigger
Eric Mack, the nation's No. 5 rated offensive guard on Scout.com, has been a top priority for recruiter Shane Beamer and the Gamecocks since early in the process. Mack had previously said that he hoped to wait until national signing day next February to announce his college decision, but sources close to the premier lineman informed GamecockAnthem.com in recent weeks that the rising senior was growing tired of the recruiting process. That, combined with his good friends A.J. Cann, Alshon Jeffery, and Brandon Golson all electing to play their college ball at South Carolina, helped Mack decide to go ahead and pull the trigger on a commitment to the Gamecocks this evening.
Mack, who has developed a great relationship with USC offensive line coach Eric Wolford, told several close to him that he feels at home at South Carolina. The standout lineman chose the Gamecocks over offers from major programs like Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Clemson, North Carolina, NC State, Georgia Tech, and others.
He becomes the 14th commitment in South Carolina's 2010 recruiting class and joins fellow offensive line commits A.J. Cann, Tramell Williams, Cody Gibson, Ronald Patrick, Corey Robinson, and Elliot Williams to form what could be one of the best line classes in America this recruiting cycle.
Stay tuned to GamecockAnthem.com for complete coverage of Mack's decision to play for the garnet and black.
