Offensive lineman Eric Mack (6-4 310) of Calhoun County, who committed to USC earlier this summer, says he is now thinking of decommitting.

Mack made an official visit to Auburn last weekend, and that visit apparently gave him something more to think about.

"I think I may have committed too early," he said. "Me and my dad started thinking when we visited Auburn that I didn't take the time to see what other schools have to offer."

Mack did say that if he does decommit, it will not eliminate USC from his choices.

"I like USC and it's a good school," said Mack. "I just want to make sure."

Mack plans to attend USC's game Thursday night against Ole Miss.

He plans to take all five official visits and says USC, Clemson, North Carolina will each get one.

"I might go to Florida, too, but I haven't decided on the other one yet," he said.

Mack also said he will talk to the coaches at USC before deciding on whether he will decommit right now.

"It's nothing they have done," he said. "I just rushed into my commitment."

Auburn tops his current list.
