Our news partners at Al.com were with the Auburn junior as he announced his intentions Thursday afternoon.  Mason says going to the NFL was always his dream, and playing at Auburn helped him accomplish that dream.

Mason is the SEC’s leading rusher and holds Auburn’s single-season record with 1,816 yards.  He was also a finalist for the Heisman trophy this season.

    Needs to finish college and get his degree then enter the draft. It does not matter how good he is.

  • John Graddick says:

    How much does the degree pay?

    • Pam says:

      all it takes is a career ending injury and he is on his own. Nice to have a marketable degree to fall back on.

      • John Graddick says:

        He wants to play for some real money, not just tuition, room and board. It is his dream and he has worked hard to create this opportunity. I wish him all the best and so should you.

  • JB says:

    His dad is rich, so i’m sure money isn’t that big of a factor for him. Personally, I don’t think he’ll do that well in the NFL for a couple of years. Gus Malzahn’s plays got him those yards. I do wish him the best though.

  • William says:

    TO GOD BE THE GLORY, THAT HE HAS EARNED AND WAS GIVEN THIS OPPORTUNITY………

  • scout says:

    He’ll be another casualty in the NFL. He should pay the school back the entire cost of his “free” education. Greedy!!!
