2023 4-Star UCLA commit Sebastian Mack: Player Breakdown

By Tim Jones, 11/17/22, 10:45PM CST


Sebastian Mack is a 6’3 shooting guard who attends Coronado in Las Vegas, Nevada. He played his grassroots with the Oakland Soldiers of the EYBL.

Mack is a tough two-guard that never lacks confidence. He’s proven that he can be a big-time scorer and can put the ball in the bucket a variety of different ways. Mack can fill it up from three-point range well beyond the arc. He can also operate in the mid-range and generate shots with ease using either pull-ups or stepbacks.

It is pretty clear that Mack is most comfortable operating with the ball in his hands. He prefers getting his own shot rather than letting others create for him. I think that being more of an off-ball threat is a thing that he needs to work on to maximize his potential as a scorer in the future, whether that is improving his shooting off the catch or being a more effective cutter.

Mack showed out at the Border League in Las Vegas last month. Through three games, he was the leading scorer, averaging nearly 31 points per contest. Coronado (Air Nado) was unable to come up with a win, but Mack carried the load offensively. His weekend included a 23 point performance against top-ranked Montverde, 33 points against Donda Academy, and a 36 point effort against Centennial.

Coronado was handled pretty easily the first two games by Montverde and Donda, but Mack never let up no matter what the score was. A near 40 point outing in the last game against Centennial was almost enough to pull off a win, but they again came up short losing by just five points. The simplest way to put it is – he just competes.

Mack committed to UCLA on Wednesday, making him the third overall commit and the first guard for the Bruins 2023 class. Forwards Devin Williams and Brandon Wiliiams committed a couple of months back and have signed letters of intent. Mick Cronin should be excited about getting a guard who can score in bunches and is one of the most competitive players in the country.
