I.C. Norcom (Portsmouth, VA) free safety prospect Kameron Mack attended Virginia Tech’s Spring Game last Saturday, but before that trip he visited the University of Virginia on Friday. Both programs have offered the 6-5, 200-pound junior according to Norcom head coach Larry Archie.
“He said he enjoyed both visits,” Archie said. “He went to UVa on Friday and Tech on Saturday and he had a chance to see both campuses and talk to coaches at both schools. He didn’t say one was better than the other. He’s going to do research on academic programs, narrow down what he wants to major in and things like that. He’s an intelligent kid because he doesn’t say anything one way or the other. He’s still evaluating everything. He said he enjoyed both trips.”
With the Evaluation Period beginning to pick up steam, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if Mack adds to his offer count.
“Tennessee called. Richmond and Liberty have stopped by. The word is out on him,” Archie said. “They will all come through. He’s still being evaluated, so we’ll see what happens.”
Mack does not seem close to making a commitment to any school.
“I’m not sure,” Archie answered when asked if a commitment could come soon. “I don’t know. There is a lot coming at him right now. He’s still a young kid. It’s a lot to happen to a 16-year old. I don’t even know how vigorous it’s going to get for him. I don’t think he is in a rush and I know schools aren’t pressuring him.”
Virginia and Virginia Tech have offered Mack as a free safety, the position he has started at for three seasons on the varsity level. Coach Archie admits, though, that it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Mack at another position down the road.
“With his physical stature, he could possibly grow into playing another position,” said Archie, who plans to play Mack at wide receiver as well as free safety this upcoming season. “He’s a free safety as of now.”
A good athlete, Mack plays varsity basketball as well. He helped Norcom to a Group AAA state championship title this past season, but he has given up playing AAU basketball in order to focus his full attention on the gridiron.
