6-5 Tevin Mack of Dreher continues to roll thru his official visits. He’s knocked off three of his five with Clemson the latest after Georgia and VCU. Mack was at Clemson last weekend. He’d been to Clemson before and already was well versed in the program, but he learned even more on this visit.
“I just had to go around the campus a little bit and get a feel for how that was again,” Mack said. “I had to meet a couple of people in the sports management department because that’s what I want to major in. They’re just trying to make it clear the ACC is the best league in basketball and they want me to come play for Clemson.”
Mack did not stay for Clemson’s first practice Sunday afternoon because of the 48 hour rule for official visits. But before leaving Brad Brownell made it clear to him what his needs are and how Mack can help meet them.
“They were telling me they don’t have any shooters my size that can shoot it anywhere and anyway and they need that,” Mack said. “They need scoring, too, and I can come in there and make shots for them and help the guys out a lot. All the schools recruiting me feel like I can come in and play right away and make an impact as long as I work hard and earn my spot.”
Mack will visit Connecticut this weekend and then wrap up his official visits with a trip to USC. Mack said he may get over to USC this week to watch a practice but that doesn’t mean any more interest by him in the Gamecocks than the other four.
“I just love basketball and I want to go watch them and get a feel for what they do and how I would fit in their practices,” he said. “I kind of put myself in one of the player’s shoes and see what the practice is like. I want to see how they work out and so I can go back and try and do some of what they do and make myself better. I like all the schools. They are all good schools. Everybody is still even.”
Mack said he’ll make his decision soon after his official visit to USC.
