"I had a great time. The coaches were great, the people are warm and I got a great welcome from the current players," said Mason. "I really liked my host, Charles Sawyer - he's a Miami guy.
"Ole Miss is a very comfortable place. I love the Southern hospitality."
Mason said he'll make a Signing Day decision and it's all even between Ole Miss and Auburn for his services.
"I had a great time at Auburn too. They won the national title and I like their staff too," Mason continued. "I will take some time to think about it and announce on Signing Day.
"What it's all going to boil down to will be where is the best opportunity for me? I am not taking it for granted that I am Ole Miss' top running back prospect. That means something to me, but I enjoyed a lot of the same attention at Auburn."
About opportunity, Tre said RB Coach Derrick Nix shot him straight and that rising sophomore RB Jeff Scott confirmed Nix's words.
"Coach Nix told me that age doesn't matter with him. The best players play, whether they are freshmen or seniors. Jeff Scott backed that up and told me the same thing," Mason continued. "It's a positive to me that I can earn the chance to play as a freshman if I work hard enough and am one of the best on the team. It's a positive that Coach Nix was straight with me."
That's the same impression Tre got on the academic side during his tour.
"The teachers were great. They were real with me. I was impressed. They told me I would have to work for everything I get, but I would have a lot of support," he noted.
Tre was accompanied on his visit by his dad, Vincent Mason, one of the founders of the hip-hop group De La Soul, that was formed in 1987 and has had a long, successful career.
"My Dad loved it at Ole Miss," Tre closed. "He has a great relationship with Coach (Chris) Vaughn. They had a great time hanging out together this weekend."
The Rebels and the Tigers put their best foot forward for the services of Tre Mason and both schools made favorable impressions.
Now it's up to him. . . the waiting begins.
