Columbia is home to two of the nation’s top uncommitted 2015 basketball prospects in 6-7 PJ Dozier of Spring Valley and 6-5 Tevin Mack of Dreher. With the basketball early signing period coming up Wednesday, both are in the final stages of making their decisions. But first, there was practice for both on Sunday afternoon.
Dozier’s father and coach Perry said Sunday afternoon from practice his son had “somewhat” made his decision and will announce it on Wednesday. Dozier has been considering USC, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgetown and Louisville.
Mack and his mother Paula visited with the USC coaches Saturday afternoon for about an hour after their practice. And over the weekend she said she heard in one form or another from all of the other head coaches in contention… Brad Brownell of Clemson, Shaka Smart of VCU, Mark Fox of Georgia and Kevin Ollie of Connecticut. Georgia is the first of the schools to send an LOI to the Macks.
Paula Mack said she and her son were discussing the decision Sunday morning when they were interrupted. She had to head off to work and her son had practice, so she doesn’t expect the two of them to reconvene until Monday night. She said Tevin does plan to make his announcement sometime Tuesday and will sign during a ceremony at Dreher at noon on Wednesday.
“We are getting close to a decision, we’re getting close to it,” Ms. Mack said. “It all boils down to where he feels comfortable. All five, we like them all.”
