Mason, listed at 6-foot-1 and 212 pounds, has impressed teammates in the preseason. A-back Qua Searcy touted him as “a baller” and said that he thought he gained more than 200 yards in the team’s scrimmage against the scout team last Friday.
“He’s a tough runner,” quarterback TaQuon Marshall said. “He’s a big, physical dude. He’s just hard to bring down. Just every time I see him run, I’m like, dang, that dude, he’s really big.”
