Bay Area Tour for Friedline

Seattle (Wash.) King's offensive lineman Mason Friedline is headed south to check out California and Stanford this week…

Seattle (Wash.) King's offensive lineman Mason Friedline continues to be one of the most sought after linemen in the Northwest.

"Since we talked last, I have added California, Harvard and Cornell," said Friedline. "Cal just contacted me and said they really liked the way I moved and offered."

Excitement over Friedline's athleticism seems be a common thread among the schools that have offered.

"Yeah, you know everyone seems to make a big deal about that (laugh)," said Friedline.

That elite athleticism, on a player tipping the scales at 6'5" 275lbs, has earned him offers from a long list of programs. So far, Friedline holds scholarships from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, California, Colorado, Cornell, Harvard, Washington, Washington State and Yale.

This spring, Friedline has been out trying to see as many of the schools as possible first hand.

"I have been relaxed on going to camps this year, I have mainly been taking visits," said Friedline. "Tomorrow I am going down to see Stanford and Cal, a Bay Area visit."

Friedline doesn't have a favorite at this point, but is starting to put together a timeline for making a decision.

"I am kind of even still I guess. I am hoping to get a Stanford offer, if they have space for me," said Friedline. "I have no favorite at this point."

"Probably after the summer I will narrow it down," said Friedline. "Obviously if a school I really want is pressing me, then that could speed things up."

Friedline is enjoying the process and talked about how far things have come in the last two years.

"Flash back a couple years and I didn't see it coming, I thought I would be a baseball player (laugh)," said Friedline. "I'm relaxed, I don't want to push any schools away."
