Petersburg native Mason commits to Kansas

Posted: Updated:
PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) -

Almost two years after verbally committing to Towson, Frank Mason now will have a chance to play for a basketball powerhouse.

The Petersburg High graduate verbally committed to play hoops at Kansas Monday.  Before his senior season at Petersburg, Mason committed to Towson.  But he pulled his verbal during his senior season, and decided to Massanutten Military School to bring his grades up this year.

That's when bigger programs started noticing the Metro Player of the Year in 2011-12.  Mason is ranked #131 in the country by Rivals, and he had South Carolina, Rutgers, Providence and Virginia Tech as other finalists.

He'll join former AAU teammate and Chester native Andrew White with the Jayhawks.
