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.
MY TOP 5 NO ORDER #Ucla #Michigan #Wisconsin #USC #Arizona State Thank you to every other school. Blessed for the opportunity.— OSA (@OS_tertag) July 10, 2014
Expect a more complete write up on recruiting in the next few days.
