If Mason Friedline and WSU are to ultimately come together, it looks like it's going to take a big shake-up. Friedline said he was unable to visit WSU unofficially this spring and summer, a key component of his decision making process. And he plans on making his verbal commitment soon.
"I haven't visited (WSU and others) so it's hard for me to have an impression of them when I haven't visited," said Friedline, who added that he's leaning towards making a decision before school starts -- and as soon as two weeks out.
On Tuesday, Friedline will begin a weeklong visit to the East Coast – something he said will go a long ways towards deciding his college home for the next 4-5 years. Yale and Harvard will be chief among the unofficial recruiting stops, he said. Friedline plans for the East Coast swing to be his final round of unofficial visits.
"It's decision making time, it's time to stop seeing and time to start deciding," said Friedline. "I'll probably make it very soon, I'm going to talk with my family.. and most likely it will be before school starts, but I'm flexible."
If Friedline were to decide to stay on the West Coast and in the Pac-12, a couple schools he was able to visit unofficially look to have the inside track at the moment.
"I like Cal a lot," said Friedline. "And then Washington is always there because they're the hometown school and I've been able to visit them. I'm really impressed with the Ivies, it's a different brand of football and it's not Pac-12 football. But football opened the door for me to get to their schools."
Friedline has drawn a lot of recruiting attention this cycle despite playing Class 1A football at King's. He holds six Pac-12 offers.
