Recruiting interest rises for DE Mason

Frederick, Md. defensive end Forrest Mason still hasn't taken any official visits. Despite that, interest is rising in the 6-foot-3, 234-pounder and he may be on the verge of more offers.
"I'm getting a few calls," he said. "I've heard from California, Rutgers, Kansas State and Nebraska.
"I just sent Nebraska my film and they said it looks good. They said they'll show it to the rest of the staff and he'll see what he can do.
"As for the others, Rutgers and Kansas State said they are real close to offering me. Kansas State's coaches are trying to decide whether I'm a defensive end or or outside linebacker. With California, they are deciding on that as well."
In the meantime, the two-star prospect continues to hold offers from Connecticut and East Carolina.
Does Mason have any favorites?
"I have no favorites right now," he said. "It doesn't really matter to me where I go. I'm going to play football.
"I do plan to take visits, but I have no clue where so far."
Mason participated in the Maryland Crab Bowl last month and impressed.
"I did pretty well," he said. "I had my boy J.R. Ferguson on the sideline and he gave me a few tips. I got two sacks, a fumble recovery and about five tackles in the game."
