Tevin Mack

Columbia native 6-6 Tevin Mack, a grad transfer from Alabama, has committed to Clemson according to Jon Rothstein of CBSSports.com. Mack took an official visit to Clemson last week. He told The State over the weekend he was also looking at an official visit to Oregon this week, but that visit will not take place.

Mack starred at Dreher High School. He was strongly recruited by Clemson and USC but signed with Shaka Smart and VCU in 2015. He never played for the Rams, however. When Smart left for Texas, Mack got his release from VCU and followed Smart to Austin.

In two seasons with the Longhorns, Mack played in 48 games, starting 10. He was the team’s leading scorer over the first 15 games of the 2017 season at nearly 15 points per game, then in January he was suspended by Smart for a second time in the season for a violation of team rules, and in late February he was released from his scholarship.

Mack landed at Alabama where he sat out the 2018 season as a transfer then averaged 9 points per game last season in Avery Johnson’s final season as coach. He had a season high 25 points against Georgia. Mack shot 42% from the floor, 33% from three, and 56% from the line.

Mack will take the final scholarship available on the roster for the 2020 season and will be one of five transfers in the program.
