It's been a good year for Ohio State 2016 commitment Austin Mack

He committed to Ohio State in June, a week after earning an invitation to play in Nike's The Opening. Two weeks later he won a 7-on-7 national championship in Florida, then he and his teammates at The Opening dominated, winning the 7-on-7 title there as well.

Since then, the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder has risen up the national recruiting charts, elevating himself all the way to being pegged as the country's 4th-ranked wide receiver according to 247Sports.com. His play throughout his senior season was chock full of explosive highlights like this and today he was recognized once again for his efforts.

Mack, who will enroll at Ohio State in January, earned the distinction as a result of his all-around excellence at Fort Wayne's Bishop Luers' High School. He scored 24 total touchdowns in his senior season, finding paydirt as a running back, wide receiver, kick returner and defensive back.

The Ohio State commitment was one of 16 semifinalists selected from around the country. Former Buckeye quarterback Terrelle Pryor won the award in 2008.
