AUBURN, Ala. — Four-star offensive lineman Eric Mack committed to Auburn on Wednesday, a day after he de-committed from South Carolina.
The 6-foot-4, 315-pound recruit from Calhoun County High in St. Matthews, S.C., is ranked as the No. 2 guard nationally by ESPN and No. 6 by Rivals.com.
Despite committing to South Carolina in the summer, Mack continued looking at other schools in the fall. He visited Auburn in September. After de-committing from South Carolina, his finalists were Auburn and Florida.
Mack is Auburn’s 23rd commitment for 2010. That does not include the five January enrollees who count against last year’s class. The Tigers can sign up to 28 players on the Feb. 3 National Signing Day.
Mack is the fourth high school offensive line recruit in the class, joining five-star Shon Coleman of Olive Branch, Miss., four-star Ed Christian of Valdosta, Ga., and three-star Chad Slade of Moody, Ala.
The Tigers already signed two junior college players — Roszell Gayden and Brandon Mosley — expected to play on the offensive line.
