Report: Gamecocks lose top OL Eric Mack

Calhoun County offensive guard Eric Mack, one of the best at his position in the nation, has decommitted from South Carolina and will choose between Auburn and Florida, according to our our sister paper, The State in Columbia.

A source told The State that Mack met with his high school coach, Walt Wilson, to discuss his feelings, saying that he wanted to get away from home to attend college. He told the Web site AUTigers.com he will choose today between between the Tigers and the Gators.

Mack, who is 6-foot-3, 325 pounds and The Observer’s No.9 prospect in SC, called South Carolina recruiter Shane Beamer Tuesday and told him of his decision.
