Ernest Mason (5-11, 176, 4.3) of Dunbar-Fort Worth, Texas is one of the top two-way athletes in the country and a commitment to the Wisconsin Badgers.
Some are beginning to wonder just how solid of a commitment the speedster from the Lone Star State is at this point because he just returned from a weekend visit to LSU.
"It was wonderful," Mason said. "Impressive. It was everything I thought it was going to be and a little more. It was a ‘10'."
LSU running back Ryan Gilbert was Mason's host for the past few days and Mason said they hung out a lot together. Of course, they made their usual trip to T.J. Ribs and to the local college nightclubs. Mason said he is still considering Texas Tech and Missouri but a pair of schools is in a dogfight.
"My top two are Wisconsin and LSU," Mason told Tiger Rag. "One of them kind of is ahead of the other one but I won't say which one."
LSU offensive line coach George Yarno is recruiting Mason, but the Tiger coaches have not decided if Mason will play at wide receiver or defensive back.
"It really doesn't matter to me," Mason said. "I played both positions and I'm familiar with both. Wherever they need me the most is where I want to play."
Sonny's View: Ernest was so upbeat when talking about the Tigers that I would have never thought he was a commitment to Wisconsin. He was very festive during our conservation and I thought it was pretty obvious that LSU leads for him after this weekend. He did not say that but that was the feeling I got.
