Sulla is one of the very best in Kentucky in his graduating class. He is getting a ton of D-1 attention and he has the frame and skills to be a factor at that level of play.KPGFootball Central Kentucky Scout
The Associated Press’s ’21 All-State team came out just a few weeks ago. It is hard to make this team as an underclassman as it is largely populated by “Seniors.” It is also hard to make the team playing football in a classification below 4A, 5A, or 6A though the AP recognizes more players from the bottom three classifications than do the coaches.
There was a name on this year’s team as hard to miss as the man to whom the name belongs. Mason Sulla made the 2nd-Team offensive line. He made it playing on a Class 3A, 5th-district team at Garrard County High.
Offensive linemen are hard to judge. There aren’t individual statistics other than games played by which to judge them. I have always looked at how the offense moved the football on the ground as one measuring stick.
The Lions from Garrard County ran the ball well behind Sulla. The team averaged approximately 7.5-yards per rushing attempt, scored a TD every 10 and a 1/2 carries, and gained 2,298-yards rushing over 10-games for 229.8 yards per outing.
Sulla was good on defense too, though he was recognized for his work offensively. Sulla had 40-tackles and 5-TFLs in ’21.
We believe Sulla is an OT, next level. While we can’t tell you exactly what his height is, we feel the picture to the bottom right sort of tells the tale for us, unless the other guy pictured should be inordinately short.
We can tell you there are many other things about Sulla’s physique we can glean from his basketball photo which teams covet in offensive tackles. Sulla looks to have long arms and legs, looks in fine physical shape, and is likely athletic and mobile like most basketball players. In other words he’s mobile with “good feet.”
Sulla also looks to have a frame on which he can stack good weight without losing athleticism. Sulla looks in the 270-pound range right now. We would guess Sulla’s height to be 6-5 or perhaps even a smidge taller.
We can tell you one other thing too. He not only is shooting up the ranks of top-flight linemen in Kentucky’s ’23 class, there are college scouts reading this article right now saying, “How do you spell ‘Sulla?'”
