Previous Posts Feb. 2: Georgia WR Demetrios Mason commits to Mizzou

From SEC Country, a pretty cool story:

"I had verbally committed to South Alabama. (Missouri) thought I was done for, already committed," said Mason. "So, (on Tuesday), South Alabama had gotten someone else, I guess. They just dropped me, left me for nowhere."

Prior to the verbal declaration of joining USA, Mason had been heartily recruited by schools like Indiana, Maryland and Georgia State. But those programs had also moved on from the Loganville, Ga. native once he committed to the Jaguars. [...]

"(The Missouri coaches) said, ‘We thought Demetrios was already taken,'" recalled Mason on Wednesday, just moments after announcing his college choice at the College Football Hall of Fame. "The Tigers coaches were like, ‘Yeah, we’ll take him’ … it’s just a blessing for me, and I thank God that it (worked out this way)."
