Niagara's Antoine Mason To Transfer To Auburn

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Antoine Mason commits to Auburn.

Niagara's Antoine Mason, the nation's second leading scorer, announced on Wednesday morning that he will transfer to Auburn for his final season.

Mason will be eligible to play immediately. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

Mason had no shortage of would-be suitors when news broke that he would leave Niagara, with no less than 20 schools expressing interest in the high-scoring guard. He recently whittled his list to three -- Auburn, Boston College and Providence. But after taking an official visit to Auburn and meeting with Bruce Pearl's ... assistants last week, Mason decided to take his talents to The Plains.

Mason averaged 25.6 points per game for Niagara as a junior, finishing second in the nation in scoring. He leaves the school as the program's third all-time leading scorer with 1,923 points.

Have to think that losing out on the Mason sweepstakes will wrap up the 2014 recruiting effort under first-year coach Jim Christian. After a tumultuous offseason that saw both Joe Rahon (St. Mary's) and Ryan Anderson (Arizona) transfer out of the program, the new staff picked up Old Dominion fifth year SG Dimitri Batten and former Cal commit PF Idrissa Diallo to replace the lost production. Boston College still has one scholarship to give in the upcoming class.

Best of luck to Mason at Auburn.
