Osa Masina cuts Utes from consideration

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The highly rated Utah high school linebacker cut the Utes from his consideration list Thursday.

Utah recruiting took a huge blow today when top in-state recruit Osa Masina did not include Utah in his top five (they were in his top eight). Masina is currently a four star rated recruited out of Brighton High School that has a very impressive offer list.

Masina's older brother, Uaea, is expected to be a contributor at linebacker this year for the Utes, leading many to think Utah had a great chance to land Osa Masina.

His top five in no particular order are Arizona State, Michigan, UCLA, USC, and Wisconsin. Losing Masina hurts even more since Utah plays four of those schools the next two years, and three are in the Pac-12 South.

Expect a more complete write up on recruiting in the next few days.
