Auburn gets Mack-tacular commitment
Six months ago, the South Carolina native said he'd play for the Gamecocks.
He broke that pledge yesterday.
Now he says he's with the Tigers -- and that's final. Mack, a four-star prospect according to Rivals.com and Scout.com, adds significant allure to coach Gene Chizik's recruiting class. Auburn now has commitments from two major OL recruits (Shon Coleman and Ed Christian) and signed a pair of junior-college guys (Roszell Gayden and Brandon Mosley) last month.
There could be aftershocks from this development. Auburn is working against the Gamecocks for the nation's No. 1 tailback, Marcus Lattimore. He lives in Duncan, S.C. Will Mack's decision affect Lattimore's thinking?
We'll find out soon.
