OL Eric Mack (6-4 310) of Calhoun County was among the 20 or so prospects in attendance at Auburn over the weekend for the Big Cat Weekend on the Plains. The Auburn staff invited some of their top targets in for the weekend. The idea was to bring the players in to show them what it would be like to play together at Auburn.
The weekend certainly helped Auburn's chances with Mack. "If I had a top five, they would be number one," said Mack who added that he doesn't have an official top five. "I enjoyed myself. Everything stood out. I felt like I was a home. We did the Toomer's Corner thing. We rolled Toomer's Corner. That was the best experience I've ever had."
Mack also talked some football with the coaches and they are selling him on early playing time. "They said I could come down there and big a big impact on their offense," Mack said.
This coming weekend Mack will camp at Georgia Tech. He will go to Georgia the following weekend and he will camp at Alabama June 28th. Right now he has no dates set for summer visits or camps with USC or Clemson.
Byrnes RB Marcus Lattimore also attended the Auburn weekend.
