Under Armour All-American Eric Mack (Saint Matthews, S.C./Calhoun County) committed to Auburn Wednesday afternoon at his school after backing out of a long standing commitment to South Carolina on Tuesday night.

Mack was one of the top offensive linemen at the Under Armour All-America Game earlier this month and is the nation's No. 2 ranked offensive guard prospect.

This is the second year in a row a Calhoun County prospect has committed to one school for most of the process and switched at the end. Last year, receiver Alshon Jeffery backed out of a long standing commitment to USC and switched to South Carolina on national signing day. He was a freshman All-American this year.

Mack said on Sunday night that he was shutting down his recruitment and would sign with South Carolina on national signing day and then decommitted from the Gamecocks on Tuesday evening.
