Yale standout Makai Mason to transfer to Baylor

Yale standout Makai Mason to transfer to Baylor

Junior guard Makai Mason of Yale has declared that after the season he will transfer to Baylor University for his final year of college eligibility. As a member of the Ivy League, student athletes only have four year of eligibility, even if they take a redshirt season. After sitting out the 2016-17 year due to a foot injury during the off-season, Mason will graduate from Yale after the 2017-18 season is over and utilize his final year of eligibility at Baylor.

The news was first reported by Andrew Slater of 247sports, and BearsIllustrated.com has confirmed. Mason chose the Bears over reported interest from Duke, Gonzaga, and Notre Dame. It is interesting timing for Mason, as he is announcing his decision before his final season at Yale.

A star of the 2015-16 NCAA tournament, where he led the Bulldogs to an upset win over the Bears scoring 31 points, Mason was the preseason player of the year in the Ivy League last year. He averaged 16 points, 3.8 assists, and .8 steals per game during his sophomore campaign. Mason suffered a broken foot during the Bulldogs season opening scrimmage against Boston University.
