Mack, a three-star defensive end from Jefferson Davis High School in Montgomery, Alabama, originally committed to Pitt in June after coming to Pittsburgh as part of a big group of official visits that netted the Panthers a dozen commitments.
But it became clear as the season went on that Pitt was going to have a hard time holding on to the 6-foot-4, 240-pound defensive end. LSU and Ole Miss were the two SEC schools that were leading the charge, and he announced before the early signing day that he intended to wait and take his official visits in January.
One day later, Mack announced that he was de-committing from Pitt. It appears that Pitt was well prepared for his departure, with the Panthers adding Nate Temple to give them four defensive ends in the class.
Mack also had offers from Florida Atlantic, Kentucky, Louisiana, Louisiana Tech, Louisville, Memphis, Middle Tennessee State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, Toledo, Troy, Tulane, UAB and Western Kentucky.
