We're third on his list right now. He's going to make it in for an official. There are a lot of things working in our favor right now. UGA is first because they have been on him longest. VCU is second because they've recruited him the hardest. I don't really know what the hold up was, but the USC offer seemed to be one he wanted pretty bad. Once he's on campus anything could happen.

6-5 Tevin Mack of Dreher attended the football games at USC and Georgia and spent time with the Bulldogs basketball staff while in Athens according to his AAU coach. Major Williamson wasn't sure if Mack saw the Gamecock coaching staff while he was at Williams-Brice. But he will see Frank Martin next week.

6-5 Tevin Mack of Dreher was back at USC Tuesday for an unofficial visit. Mack made his first official visit over the weekend to Georgia and got the chance to take a closer look at the Bulldog program under Mark Fox. He toured the campus and spent a lot of time with the players.
“They showed me some film on the wings, especially Caldwell Pope and how they used him, and I kind of got a feel for how I’d be able to play.” Mack’s mother went with him on the visit.
This weekend he goes to VCU followed by Clemson the following weekend. Connecticut is a recent offer for Mack and he might take a visit there, and he is scheduled to visit USC October 17th.
Clemson was down last week to watch him work out and showed him film on their wings like KJ McDaniels. USC also was in last week and they also showed him film of one of Frank Martin’s players at Kansas State. VCU coach Shaka Smart has also been in for his visit and Connecticut coach Kevin Ollie is scheduled to meet with him Wednesday.
Mack said there is no favorite and he plans to sign in November.

he third official visit for 6-5 Tevin Mack of Dreher will take place this weekend as he and his mom will go to Clemson. Mack has been to Georgia and VCU. He visited Shaka Smart’s program in Richmond last weekend.
‘VCU is different from other schools,” Mack said. “It has a different environment, it’s more in a city, and I kind of like that. Coach Smart is saying all the same things all along…come in and play and shoot the ball. That’s what I do.”
Mack talked to Clemson Wednesday night to finalize plans for his trip and he’s hearing similar words from the Tigers.
“They love how I can score the ball and shoot,” he said.
USC coach Frank Martin watched Mack work out Wednesday.
Mack will take his official visit to Connecticut next weekend and wrap up his visits at USC after that. He doesn’t have a timetable for a decision which he ultimately will reveal on Twitter rather than having a formal announcement.

You have to get recruits like this (if he will help the team). You need to lock down your home city, especially a high school that is a 5-10 minute drive from the Colonial Life Arena.

He's 3rd on our board right now. Dozier is the big priority.

Tevin is taking his official Visit this weekend. He's expected to make his decision sometime after his visit.

Btw finally got an answer from te guy at GCC, we only have two spots available for 2015, and he said he can't see anyone being pushed out the door this year. So dozier is our last spot.

So does that mean if we get Dozier, we won't take Nix or Mack? That would be unfortunate, especially considering Nix plays a position of dire need. Obviously I want Dozier first and foremost, but I would hope we could make room for Mack and/or Nix. I believe Mack will be a talent upgrade over a few guys who will be on the roster. For instance, I would have rather taken Mack in this class than taken Sheppard in the last class.

That's the nature of the recruiting game. Sometimes you just wanna pass on a less talented guy to leave room for upcoming classes. It's a gamble either way. What we don't want to do is push an honest kid away to free up a spot for a more highly ranked recruit. That would look bad down the road.

Frank is doing alright. I might have passed on a few of the "no star" recruits over the last 2 seasons, but that is easy to say now that we're here.

If Nix and Dozier want to come, I would be shocked if we turned them down. I don't know what could be done to solve the scholarship situation, but I can't see us turning down either one of those guys.

You would have to encourage a guy to transfer. There's only one player that I think might leave, if he barely gets mins like last year. I don't know what Sindarius Thornwell's plans are at the end of the season. That's something else to think about.

Especially now that we're offering the 4-year scholarships.

At this time, I don't think there is anyone who Frank would encourage to transfer. If Thornwell has a good year, he might go pro. If he did, that would open a scholarship. Maybe one of the guys who are currently on scholarship could pay his own way for a year? I don't know if that would be possible, but if it is, that might be a solution. There is usually more than one way to skin a cat, as the old saying goes. I would hate to lose out on Nix or Dozier. Or even Mack. I'd love to have him too.

Can you have too many good players? Yes. There is only enough playing time for about 9 or 10 players. The other guys are not going to play much. So even if Frank does not encourage someone to transfer, someone still might because they are just not going to play very much.
