Mack to choose Auburn or Florida
One of the top-rated offensive line recruits in the country de-committed from one SEC school and said he will now decide between two others.
Four-star Eric Mack from St. Matthews, S.C., opened his recruitment up Tuesday night after being committed to South Carolina since the summer.
Auburn and Florida are his finalists, Mack said.
The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Mack took an official visit to South Carolina over the weekend, but said he's no longer considering the Gamecocks.
"I just felt like South Carolina wasn't the right fit for me," said Mack. "I just don't feel like that is a place I can focus, get my education and graduate.
"It's now Auburn or Florida for me."
Tiger and Gator fans may not have to wait long to find out Mack's choice.
Mack said he could make his decision as early as Wednesday. He is tentatively scheduled to announce his choice at John Ford Middle School at 11 a.m. CT.
Mack, rated by Rivals.com as the No. 6 offensive guard in the country, took an official visit to Auburn in September. He's been high on the Tigers since.
Mack has not taken an official visit to Florida.
He is being recruited to Auburn by assistant coach Jay Boulware.
