Friedline already receiving interest

Mason Friedline ( spoke this week with King's (Shoreline, Wash.) Head Coach Jim Shapiro, and 'Coach Shap' had nothing but glowing remarks when asked about his 2013 offensive lineman, Mason Friedline. According to Shapiro, Friedline is the perfect blend of brains and brawn, and because of that he's hearing from colleges from all over the country.

"The Ivies are drooling over him," Shapiro told Scout about Friedline, who has a reported 3.87 GPA while taking honors courses. Friedline has a lot of physical upside, and obviously he's a smart kid. "Add in his leadership, and it's like the icing on the cake," Shapiro said.

Yale has apparently been recruiting Friedline since his junior year, and Harvard has also expressed a lot of interest. Cornell has shown interest in the past month or so.

Because of his academics, it's also not surprising that schools like Duke, Stanford and Notre Dame are also inquiring about Friedline. In fact, Shapiro said that the junior lineman is already starting to go through the Stanford application process.

When asked about Friedline's potential, Shapiro believes he's every bit as good as former O'Dea OL Sam Flor, who recently signed with Washington State. "(Friedline) is easily that caliber," said Coach Shap.

Shapiro added that even though Friedline hasn't set up any unofficial visits yet, he definitely wants to trip back east over the summer to visit the Ivy League schools, as well as Duke - and a summer trip to Stanford also seems likely at this point.
