Frank Mason commits to Kansas Jayhawks basketball

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Frank Mason, a top 50 ranked point guard, has reportedly committed to Kansas.

Frank Mason, a point guard from Massanutten (Va.) Military Academy, has committed to play basketball for the Kansas Jayhawks, reports Adam Zagoria. The 5' 11, 160-pound prospect had originally committed to Towson but changed his plans when he did not qualify academically.

In discussing his decision, Mason praised the Jayhawks program:

"I chose KU because of its tradition, coach (Bill) Self's winning percentage and the type of players they have there. I want to align myself with players of that ability and character. They are all the type of people I want to be around.

"It's a great program, from academics to basketball. I talked with the players (on official visit last weekend) a lot and knew it was the right place for me. It's a great program. They've won a lot of Big 12 championships, made a lot of Final Four appearances and have multiple national championships. It's a dream come true."

Mason is a three-star prospect according to Rivals.com, who rank him 131st nationally and No. 28 in their ranking of point guards. He played on varsity starting in his freshman year, and averaged 24.2 points per game in 2012 and was named the Central Region Player of the Year, according to TowsonTigers.com.

In addition to Towson, Mason had received interest from Tennessee, Louisville, Seton Hall and UConn.
