Gary Mason Jr.: Ready For Primetime
"I am proud to be going to Baylor. I am going to do my best to make them a better football team."
At his signing day press conference, Baylor head football coach, Art Briles, described Mason Jr. as "an explosive player." Mason Jr. talks about his style of play.
"I try to beat the offensive player out of his stance. I try to use my hands to get around him. I just got to get stronger and faster. I will bring a lot of energy, and I am going to try and make a lot plays."
Mason Jr. sports a 4.7 forty, and a 6-7 high jump. That type of athleticism is what turned the heads of plenty of college suitors such as Kansas, SMU, and New Mexico.
Mason Jr. explains he is ready to suit up for the Baylor Bears and wants a chance to compete during his true freshman year. He also adds that he does not mind redshirting if that is what the coaches feel is best.
