Monday night CJ’s recruiting writer Steve Jones reported that 4-star running back Marlon Mack committed to Louisville. CardNation rejoiced and praised the coaching staff. About 30 minutes later reporters for Rivals and 247Sports.com reported that Mack committed to South Florida, making CardNation sad and confused.
The later in the night Tampa Bay Times writer Joey Knight reported that Mack’s coach says he has not committed anywhere yet.
Football recruiting is strange. It is best to just wait until signing day to pay too much attention, but if you love drama from 17 to 18-year old kids then pay for a subscription to Scout, Rivals, 247Sports or whoever else has a site devoted to the practice.
Mack is pretty darn good though.
