One of the nation’s top-rated defensive ends currently has eight schools vying for his five official visits.
“I’m mainly looking at Virginia, Maryland, USC (South Carolina), Florida, Auburn, Tennessee and N.C. State,” said Columbia (S.C.) Spring Valley star Mack Frost. “I have offers from all of those.
“I’m also starting to hear more from Virginia Tech. They called the other day and told me they wanted me to come up and visit, that I will have an offer, so I’ve been thinking about them, too.”
Asked if he had developed a leader at this point, Frost said: “Not yet. I’m trying to go to as many games as possible, check things out, see what the atmosphere is like at these schools. I’m also wanting to get to know the coaches a little better before I say who’s up there at the top.”
One hint comes in the form of the only school he’s sure to visit – Maryland.
“I’ll be setting that one up soon, maybe next week,” he said. “I’m not sure about the other four.”
So far this season, he’s made unofficial visits to Clemson, South Carolina and Georgia. This weekend, he plans to attend Georgia’s game at Tennessee.
Frost (6-5, 235, 4.65) is rated the No. 13 weakside defensive end in the country. As a junior, he had 77 tackles, 10 pass deflections, seven tackles for loss and seven sacks.
He’s been slowed by a high ankle sprain this season, but has still managed to record three sacks, three forced fumbles and a blocked field goal in the first six games.
Academically, he’s a 3.3 student with a 1080 on the SAT.
