Focus '08: J.D. Mason
"I don't have great timed speed at all which has really hurt me with some programs because they look at that and are dismissive of me right away, however I do have good field speed and run good routes," Mason explained. "I can get off the line well and use my body to create separation and also think I have pretty good hands. Right now I have had a lot of interest from Ivy League schools and the MAC and have been to three camps, so we'll see what happens from here. I camped at Penn, Temple and Pitt already and plan to go to Princeton and Columbia this weekend."
Temple - "I really liked the staff a lot there and they really seemed to like what I brought to the table at camp, so there is definite mutual interest there and they told me they would get back to me when their camps had concluded. While I was down there I took a quick tour of the campus while we had a break and while the surrounding areas are not great the campus itself is really nice."
Pittsburgh - "My father actually went to law school at Pittsburgh and they are a great school with excellent facilities, however I don't think that I am their type of player at wide receiver and don't really feel comfortable on campus there."
Connecticut - "I was supposed to camp there, but I am also being recruited for baseball as a pitcher and my team had an important game, so I did not want to let them down by not coming to the game. I have been to Connecticut twice now, once for a junior day and then again for a practice and tour and really liked Coach Matt Cersosimo and Coach Randy Edsall who has ties to this area. The facilities there were absolutely insane and I was really impressed with what they had to offer, but there has been a lack of contact from them lately, so I have shifted my focus onto other programs at this point."
As a junior, Mason caught 28 passes for 620 yards and three touchdowns. He also added 55 tackles, four tackles for loss, nine interceptions and returned an interception for a touchdown from his cornerback position. For his efforts he was named first-team All-League, All-Area and Class AA All-State.
As a sophomore, Mason caught 20 passes for 375 yards and four touchdowns. On defense, he made 49 tackles, five tackles for loss, intercepted nine passes and returned one for a touchdown. He was named first-team All-League, All-Area and was an honorable mention Class AA All-State selection.
