Friedline talks recruiting, future

Washington got into the mix early with Kings (Seattle, Wa.) OL Mason Friedline and it's a good thing because schools from around the Pac 12 have him in their sites. Recently, the talented line prospect received his fifth offer, this one coming from Washington State, and he updated about where things stand including how a recent visit to Montlake went...

"I met and talked to all the coaches, but I spent most of my time with coach Cozzetto and coach Sark," Friedline told Tuesday afternoon. "They showed me what the new Husky Stadium is going to look like and after seeing that, it's gonna be sick. They did a really great job with it.

"I talked with coach Cozzetto a lot about where he sees me and he said he expects all of his players to eventually be able to play all of the positions along the line. They really like that I have played center and they love my versatility."

Friedline said he plans to attend Washington's Junior Day on April 28th when a plethora of top prospects plan to be on campus as well.

"I'm hoping to get down there for a couple of the Saturday scrimmages," Friedline said. "I'll take a couple of buddies with me and we'll go down and watch some good football."

On the recruiting front, Friedline received an offer from Washington about four weeks ago and recently he added his fifth when Washington State finally joined the fray.

"I had been talking to coach (Clay) McGuire, their line coach, and he talked about how they are trying to turn around the program and what their plans are," Friedline noted. "He said they had an offer for me and to me it's really exciting to have both instate schools offer me, plus all of the other schools as well."

As he noted, Friedline now has offers from the two instate schools (Washington and Washington State) as well as offers from Arizona, Arizona State and Colorado and more could be on the way.

"I've been talking with Oregon a lot and Stanford is right there too," Friedline said. "Neither of them have offered or anything, but those are two that I have been talking to quite a bit so we'll see what happens with them."

Friedline also continues to assert that he plans to take his time while considering his options.

"I don't really have a timeline, but before my senior season I'll narrow things down a little," Friedline said. "I'll narrow it down, set up visits to the schools I want to see and who want me to visit and then after that I will make my decision."

We will continue to keep track of Friedline's progress over the coming weeks and will update news as it happens with him.
