MENOMONIE, WI-- The Blue Devils of UW-Stout landed a commitment from one of the most solid defesnive linemen in the metro last week. We caught up with Jackson Mack to see what made him commit to the WIAC program in northwest Wisconsin.

What Went Into Mack's Commitment to the Blue Devils

It all went into when Jackson Mack took a visit to UW-Stout and the great city of Menomonie, Wisconsin. "When I visited, it just felt like a place I could live for the next 4 to 5 years," Mack told Northstar Football News. Talking to the Blue Devils coaches about his will to win and doing whatever it takes sold him on UW-Stout.

Other College Options Mack Considered

In the end, it came between, UW-Stout and Hamline University in St. Paul in which Mack told us was a "very hard decision" to choose Stout over the Twin Cities MIAC program in the Hamline Pipers.

Adjusting to the College Game

Mack told us that the biggest change he will have to make is his speed. "The college game is a lot faster, so I need to use my feet and get more agile." he said about college football vs. high school.
