When Niagara announced in late May that Antoine Mason was leaving the program, Mason immediately became one of the most sought-after transfers in the country. That doesn't normally happen with a player from the MAAC, but Mason is the nation's leading returning scorer -- and will be eligible immediately.

Dozens of schools have reached out to Mason since his transfers, but he has three visits set.

Mason will visit Auburn this weekend, Providence next week, and then Boston College after that.

"I think the official is Auburn and the others [are] unofficial," Mason told CBSSports.com in a text message.

With so many schools showing interest, Mason could take a few more trips.

"I have more, just haven't set them up," he said. "I'm still narrowing the list."

There is no set timetable for a decision.

Mason, the son of former New York Knick Anthony Mason and brother of former St. John's star Anthony Mason Jr., averaged 25.6 points last season. The 6-foot-3 guard finished his Niagara career as the school's third all-time leading scorer.
