The 2016 recruiting class continues to grow in size and talent for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Wide receiver Austin Mack, a four-star wide receiver in the 2016 class, committed to the Buckeyes this morning. The Fort Wayne, Indiana product committed to Ohio State after unofficially visiting Columbus on April 11. Mack is the 24th highest rated wide receiver in the country in the 2016 class according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. He is now the 16th player in the 2016 class for the Buckeyes and the second wide receiver added in the class.

Here’s Mack’s comments on officially joining Buckeye Nation:

Mack stands at 6’2″ and weighs 205 pounds. He was recruited by Kerry Coombs and Zach Smith. Mack had offers from multiple schools. Among the schools vying for him and offering him were Michigan, Alabama, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Wisconsin and many more.

Catching Up With Austin Mack

Austin Mack is a top Wide Receiver coming out of the 2016 class. He is from Fort Wayne, Indiana and stands 6-2 weighing 205. 247 Sports has Austin as the top player coming out of Indiana in his class. He is also ranked the 20th Receiver for the class. He has offers from several top programs such as Ohio State, Notre Dame and Michigan State.

When asked about the recruiting process Mack said “It’s been real good and successful.”. It is important to know that as of know he does not have a list of his top schools. “I’m keeping everything even” he explained.

Austin was able to visit Ohio State for the Cincinnati game. “It was a different night game there is pretty crazy. The whole atmosphere was nuts. And with better competition it was much more fun to watch.”. He along with several other recruits were able to share this experience. When asked about the other recruits visiting Mack stated “I talked to Gibson and that’s about it.” The two of them together on a team could be a very deadly combination.

He plans on committing  next summer at the RAS camp. He is keeping busy with visits as he will visit Notre Dame for the Stanford game. To close up my conversation with Austin he said “I’ll be playing in Columbus on 10/10 against Bishop Hartley so come out and show some love!”. With die hard Buckeye fans I am sure Mack will be satisfied with the love he will get from Buckeye Nation!
