Oklahoma State is the latest big time program to make an offer to 6-5 Tevin Mack of Dreher who has seen his recruiting value rise with a strong showing this month at camps and tournaments. Some of his more recent offers include Auburn, VCU, Wake Forest, East Carolina and Mississippi State.
“I knew going into it I was going to have to play good to get some more offers,” Mack said. “I just started playing harder and I think I’m doing a pretty good job of playing harder and being a leader. I think I led my team pretty well. We were undermanned because Seventh (Woods) is hurt now (wrist) so I had to play point guard, a position I don’t normally play. So I just jumped up to be more of a leader. That’s the best thing I did.”
Mack said it’s pleasing to him to receive the new offers, evidence that his hard work is paying off. Clemson has been one of his long time offers and he was in touch with the Tigers Tuesday.
“They just told me they will be at all my games next weekend in North Carolina,” Mack said. He’s also in touch with USC and though the Gamecocks have not yet offered, he’s optimistic they will. “I talk to those guys a lot. I talked to coach Martin the other day. We have a good understanding. I talk to those guys a lot.”
Mack said he plans to visit Clemson and USC again this summer and he also plans to visit Wake Forest in August.
As for a decision time frame, Mack doesn’t plan to sign in November and wants to make his decision between December and February. He does not have a favorite.
