Calhoun County OL Eric Mack (6-4 310) spent part of Tuesday at Clemson with his mother and some of his coaches. Mack said it was a very productive visit.
"I got a better feeling for Clemson," he said. "When the recruiting first started, I didn't know much about Clemson and I was pushing them off. The more I go up there, the better feeling I get for their coaching staff."
Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney was on vacation, so Mack spent much of his time with offensive coordinator Billy Napier.
"He got to know me better," Mack said. "He talked a little bit about recruiting, how badly they need me. He talked about if I worked hard, and if I pick them, how I might be starting and be an all-ACC player."
Mack also said his mother enjoyed the visit.
"She got a chance to see everything and get a feeling for all that stuff," he said.
Mack plans to be at USC on Wednesday, not so much to see the school or the coaches but to see his good friend and freshman receiver Alshon Jeffery.
"I'm going to watch him work out and then go back to his dorm room and chill a little bit," Mack said. "He said the workouts are really killing him right now. I also want to watch the linemen work out."
Mack also plans to take visits in the coming weeks to North Carolina, N.C. State, Florida, Florida State and Miami.
He has not cut his list and doesn't have favorites.
"Everything is pretty much wide open," Mack said.
