Three-star weakside defensive end Mack Frost did his part to help his Columbia (S.C.) Spring Valley squad win in the first round of the state playoffs last week. Frost, who is 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, had 13 tackles.
He hopes to repeat the performance again this week against Moncks Corner (S.C.) Berkeley.
“All they like to do is run the ball to the fullback,” Frost, ranked as the nation’s No. 18 weakside defensive end by Rivals.com, said. “They’re going to be a lot of people down there. We’re taking a charter bus of fans down, and we leave Friday afternoon. We’re going to be ready, and I know I’m already pumped.”
Almost as much as he is pumped about the recruiting process. Frost has scholarship offers from Auburn, Florida, Maryland, N.C. State, South Carolina and Virginia. He already has official visits to Maryland set up for December 12, South Carolina on January 17 and Virginia on January 23.
“The other two are going to be Auburn and Florida,” he said.
That means N.C. State isn’t likely to get a visit from the three-star two-time all-region selection.
Frost said when it comes to the weekly calls, the coaches from Virginia standout the most.
“Coach Stephenson and coach Heck from Virginia are the coolest,” he said. “They always talk to me about how I can come in and play really early. They also talk to me about a lot of non-football things.”
Frost said he’s excited to hear the news about Lou Holtz getting another year to his contract today.
“That’s what I wanted to hear,” he said. “I want to play for a coach that’s still going to be there when I’m there.”
