Scouting Report on Tre Mason

by Barry Every - 11/16/2010
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • ElusivenessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Solidly built with the frame to add more weight. He definitely looks like a back that can carry the ball 20 times in a game. Physically, he is similar to Miami running back Eduardo Clements.
Needs Improvement: Mason needs to work on lowering the shoulder pads just before contact thus reducing the number of hard hits he takes. Has a tendency to stretch the play, looking for the home run, instead of taking what is given to him. He needs to make more runs between the tackles.
Most Impressive: His top-end speed is excellent as he can pull away in the open field from most defensive backs. He is also an excellent receiver coming out of the backfield. But his forte is that one cut to make the initial tackler miss and cutting it back across the grain for big yardage.
Conclusion: Look for him to outperform more highly recruited backs. But before this happens he will need to improve his pass blocking. I look for him to be a surprise performer similar to Montel Harris of Boston College.
