Mason Richman performed so well at last week’s Iowa camp that the coaches asked him back to campus for an official visit this weekend. The Kansas lineman took them up on the offer.

During the stop, Richman found out what was most important to him lived in Iowa City. He also was offered a scholarship.

“What I liked most was all of the things we were able to talk about in the short times in between the itinerary, which helped show just who some of these coaches were. They’re great, down-to-earth people, who genuinely cared about me and my family being there,” he said.

Richman spent time with his lead recruiter, Kelton Copeland, his would-be position coach, Tim Polasek, and head coach Kirk Ferentz.

“What I liked best about my meeting with those coaches was that they had the same things to say about one another and what they preach at Iowa everyday, which is consistency in all phases of the program,” he said.

Some schools like Richman (6-5, 260) as a defensive end, but the Hawkeyes see him on the offensive line. He reports scholarship offers from home-state Kansas, Air Force, Ball State and others.

Redshirt freshman defensive end John Waggoner played host to Richman during his Iowa visit. They hit it off.

“He was awesome, showing me a good time on Saturday. I only hope for the best for my guy,” Richman said.

Richman did not commit on his visit, but felt like Iowa was a place he could see himself playing.

“If I chose Iowa, I would fit well because I think I have a lot of room to grow and prosper in college. This place is home to blue-collar guys who all have the exact same mindset to break the rock. I think I could add something to the room in that regard,” he said.

Richman plans on camping at Kansas State, where he also may take an official visit.

“Although, anything can happen between now and then,” he said. “And then I will be coming up to the decision point in the process.”
