North Cobb (GA) enjoyed its best season since 1979, compiling a perfect regular season and a 10-1 record overall. One of the biggest reasons for the Warriors success was the playmaking abilities of wide receiver Rico Mack. Mack accounted for close to 2,000 yards of total offense and 13 touchdowns. Mack's exploits have attracted the attention of several colleges and he discusses his recruiting here.
Mack is a 5'9, 165-pound athlete that made plays all over the field for North Cobb last season. Several colleges have liked what they've seen from the talented athlete.
When asked if he has received any offers yet, he responded, "No sir, not yet. It's been a lot of schools talking to me and I've been going on a lot of visits, but none have offered yet."
Among schools showing interest are Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Louisville, Kentucky and Wake Forest.
Mack may not hold any offers at this time but thinks that may not be the case for long.
"I'm pretty sure once I go to a Nike Combine this summer or a couple of them coming up, they're going to offer-as soon as I do my tests and stuff, they're going to offer.
What can the stud receiver offer colleges at the wide receiver position?
"I'm very quick and fast. I run crisp routes and I got great hands. I can jump a little bit for my size. I got some ups," he said.
Mack discussed some of the factors that will come into play when making a decision.
"Probably the coaching staff, the location and just how I fit into their offense."
Does he have a current list of favorites?
"I like Georgia, Georgia Tech and Kentucky. I like the SEC schools, but it really don't matter. They're pretty much the same. [I'm] still wide open right now."
Mack is also in no hurry to make a decision.
"No, I'm not in any kind of hurry. It just depends. If I get a good offer and I like the school and I like the coaching staff I might go ahead and commit, but if not, I might wait until after my senior season.
Despite North Cobb's best season in 28 years, the Warriors season ended with a first round loss to Peachtree Ridge. Mack likes his team's chances for next season.
"Yeah we got a very good chance of coming out next year. We got me and the other slot back, number 14 and that's basically what our offense is going to revolve around so we got a good chance. We got a lot of people coming back so we should have a good team."
