Mason gets offer from Pac 12 school

El Camino OT Miles Mason (6-4, 310) got some good news late last week when a Pac 12 school ponied up an offer. The talented offensive lineman will take an official visit on Thursday and could end up signing if things go well...

"I got offered by Utah last week," Mason told "I just got my flight information (Tuesday) and I'll be officially visiting there Thursday and Friday and then I will leave on Saturday."

Mason has held offers from SMU, Florida International, New Mexico and Utah State and was getting a lot of attention from schools in the Mountain West and the Big 12, but has held off on making a commitment, hoping for an offer from a Pac 12 school.

"Coach (Norm) Chow has known me for a while," Mason noted. "He knew me from when I was in high school and when he was at UCLA.

"I talked to him and he said he needed to bring in a tackle so they were offering me and they wanted me to come out for a visit."

Mason has had a circuitous route to playing football at one of the top JUCO programs in the country.

He prepped at Santa Monica High School and missed most of his sophomore year due to an injury. His junior and senior year were spent playing basketball only and then once he graduated, he took a year off before joining El Camino in 2008 where he redshirted.

In 2009 and 2010 he started every game for the Warriors and was rock-solid as both a run-blocker and pass-blocker.

Mason is on pace to finish up his degree in May and he will have two years to play two once he arrives.
