Santa Monica DB Mason Stone has two walk-on offers to consider as he nears a decision on where he will play in 2016

Santa Monica DB Mason Stone (6-0, 180) had a solid freshman season for the Corsairs and was poised to be a breakout player at the JUCO level this coming fall. However, some new opportunities have presented themselves and he is contemplating those choices as we get closer to Signing Day...

Stone, who totaled 27 tackles, two inteceptions and eight pass breakups as a safety for Santa Monica last season, has seen interest in his skills pick up and he currently holds walk-on offers from Washington and Washington State.

"I have offers right now from Northern Colorado and Idaho State," Stone, a bounceback from Idaho, told "(Washington) is my hometown school, so that may win out of a scholarship honestly."

Stone actually visited Washington relatively recently and he said he talks to the Husky coaches quite often.

"I have had conversations with coach (Jimmy) Lake," Stone said. "They haven't told me where they see me playing, just that it would be somewhere in the defensive backfield."

As a freshman this past season with the Corsairs, Stone played both safety spots.

"In our defense, we really didn't have a free or strong safety," Stone said. "Both safeties had to do both jobs and we would just be interchangeable and swap responsibilities. 

"I believe I read the field really welland I fidn the quickest route to the football and make sure I make the play when I get there. I also have good range and I can cover a lot of the field."

Stone signed with Idaho after graduating from Mountlake Terrace (Wa.) High School back in 2013. He greyshirted there and then sought other opportunities, so he headed to Santa Monica and redshirted in 2014 before playing this past season for the Corsairs.

Stone will have three years to play three should he decide to leave this spring or he could return, even though he already has his two-year degree, and be a recruitable athlete this coming fall, however, that seems unlikely. will continue to keep tabs on Stone and his progress in making a decision and we will update news on him as it happens.
