After a drama-filled 24 hours, Sarasota (Fla.) Booker running back, Marlon Mack, has decided to play his college football in the Sunshine State for Willie Taggart and the South Florida Bulls.

In one of the more bizarre recruiting stories you'll witness in quite some time, 2014 3-star Sarasota (Fla.) Booker running back, Marlon Mack, has officially committed to the University of South Florida over the Louisville Cardinals.

On Monday afternoon, a report surfaced saying that Mack committed to Louisville, but that was not the case. Fast forward just a few hours later, another report stated that the running back has decided to stay instate and play his college football for Willie Taggart and the Bulls.

Good news for Bulls fans, that report is absolutely true and Mack Attack will be suiting up in the Green and Gold this Fall.

"Yes (he committed to USF)," Sarasota Booker Head Coach, Johnnie Jones, told USFNation.com.

The 6-foot, 195-pound Sarasota native was named the HTpreps.com Defensive Player of the Year after recording 110 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and four interceptions in 2013.

The 3-star running back amassed 1,527 yards and 19 touchdowns on the ground, while snagging eight passes for 139 yards and three touchdowns through the air as well.

Mack is fresh off an official visit to the University of South Florida, which he rated a "9" on a 1-10 scale.
