USC head men’s basketball coach Lamont Paris and the Gamecocks have landed another significant addition from the transfer portal. On Thursday, Wofford’s B.J. Mack made his intentions known via social media.
Perhaps the top target for USC this offseason, Mack rounds out an experienced incoming transfer class that also includes former Vanderbilt forward Myles Stute, Minnesota guard Ta’Lon Cooper, and Citadel forward Stephen Clark.
Last season for the Terriers, Mack averaged 17 points and 6 rebounds per game in earning All-Southern Conference honors.
Mack is the third commitment of the day for the Gamecocks. Finland’s Morris Ugusuk and Okku Federiko announced their choices Thursday morning. Ugusuk, like Mack, is a member of the 2023 class, while Federiko is the first commit for the class of 2024.
Originally from Charlotte, Mack took an official visit to USC last weekend and chose the Gamecocks over Iowa, Alabama, LSU, and Arkansas. The 6-8 forward began his collegiate career at South Florida before transferring to Wofford.
