You can never get enough talented linemen. If your school is looking for one take the 101 to Santa Barbara, Calif., and visit San Marcos high school. There you will find Alex Mack (6-4, 255, 5.0). Mack is a standout on both sides of the ball as an offensive and defensive tackle.
Though Mack is an outstanding tackle on offense most colleges are recruiting him as an offensive center while a few like him as a defensive tackle.
Mack was selected all-CIF as a junior while he all-county and all-league both his sophomore and junior seasons.
A known hard worker, Mack is going to be very busy this summer working on improving his skills while camping at Stanford, Cal, UCLA and possibly USC.
Mack doesn’t have any offers yet but if has strong showings at the camps he attends look for that to change. With his upsides he could easily pick up an offer or two.
Mack is very athletic on both sides of the football. He has tremendous leg drive. Another thing that the D-I’s like about him is he is a great wrestler who ended up fifth in the state as a junior.
“Alex does a great job as a run blocker and his hands incredibly well,” San Marcos head coach Will Gonzales said. “When we need a tough yard we run behind Alex.”
Another thing to like about Mack is he is an outstanding student with a 4.2 GPA and 1180 SAT. He took his SAT as a sophomore so he’s going to retake the test.
Is it any wonder that academically strong teams are all over this guy?
Northwestern and Cal like him on either side of the ball. Stanford and UCLA are looking at him as an offensive lineman while USC thinks he would make an ideal offensive center.
