Mason Friedline had been hearing from numerous Pac-12 schools but Colorado wasn't one of them so he was surprised when the Buffaloes decided to offer earlier this week.
It was the first offer for the Shoreline (Wash.) Kings offensive guard and he was definitely thrilled to get on the board. On Friday, the 6-foot-5, 275-pound prospect added an offer from Washington as well.
"It was kind of a surprise," Friedline said of the Colorado offer.
"I've been talking to a lot of schools but Colorado wasn't one of them. I guess my coach sent out the film and I was kind of unaware of it and they called me up and said they were really impressed."
Friedline admitted he doesn't know a whole lot about the Colorado program but is hoping to visit for its junior day next month. He has talked with offensive line coach Steve Marshall and things have been moving along well.
"Coach Marshall said it's a pro-style offense, they're new to the conference and they said they need to rebuild their offensive line and hopefully I could be part of it," Friedline said. "That was really cool.
"I'm feeling great. Once you get one offer I've been told they come quicker. I'm looking forward to many more hopefully. Colorado invited me to their junior day in mid-April. I'd like to take my family out there if we can afford it."
Other than the offers from Colorado and Washington, Friedline said he has been hearing from Stanford and Utah, a little from Notre Dame and some Ivy Leagues schools mainly Princeton, Cornell and Brown.
Since he's just picked up his first two offers, Friedline said he wants to remain patient in the recruiting process and see what else happens before making any decisions.
