Dexter’s Mason NEC Bound
Dexter Southfield senior Jordan Mason made a verbal commitment to Wagner on Tuesday night.
Mason is a 6-foot-4 wing with a story body who is known for his three-point shooting, and specifically his deep shooting range.
He missed a significant portion of his senior season with injury but has since returned to the line-up and is expected to be in action Wednesday when Dexter visits Canterbury in the quarterfinals of the Class B tournament.
Mason is a good fit for head coach Bashir Mason as he has that alpha-dog mentality that should resonate in a Wagner program that preaches defense and competitiveness on a daily basis. He'll also provide some much needed three-point shooting for a team that is currently making just 31.6% of their attempts from behind the arc this season.
“I love the coaching staff,” Mason told Adam Zagoria. “They care about me and really showed that. I also really connected with the mentality that they preach daily. I feel that my ability to shoot the ball is my biggest asset. I can see myself really helping to space the floor for my teammates.”
Mason is the fourth player and second New England product, joining Woodstock Academy's Darion Jordan-Thomas, to commit to Wagner this year.
He also joins his longtime teammate Noah Kamba to become the second Dexter School and WrightWay Skills product to commit in as many weeks.
Below are some of his summer highlights with WrightWay Skills.
