Surrounded by some of the top competition in the nation, 2015 Salt Lake City (Utah) Brighton four-star outside linebacker Osa Masina is looking to make a big splash with his play out at The Opening in Oregon.
Participating in all of the drill portions of the week long camp, Masina already made a significant improvement overall.
“I’ve done pretty good,” Masina said. “I got 108 on the SPARQ score and that’s better than my last score. My last score was 98 so I’ve improved a lot.”
“It’s all fun, it’s all competing,” Masina added. “We’re sweating trying to get better. I don’t know if it’s tough, it’s more of a fun, get better type of deal.”
Following his time at The Opening, Masina says he plans to talk things over with his family and come up with his top five. After that, the plan will be put in place for visits in the fall.
“Once I narrow it down to five those will be my five officials and I’ll probably take those after the football season,” Masina said.
Masina previously made it out to Ann Arbor to further familiarize himself with the Wolverines last year.
Although the Michigan coaches tried to get Masina to return for July’s barbecue at the big house this year, his schedule wouldn’t allow it. Looking back on his visit to Michigan last year, Masina says he felt comfortable.
“I just had a great feeling when I got there,” Masina said. “I liked all the coaches, I like Hoke; he’s a great guy.
“I love the stadium and all of that stuff, all their facilities. I don’t know, me and my family just walked away with a good vibe for Michigan.”
In the heart of Pac-12 country, Masina has paid visits to several west coast schools throughout the recruiting process.
Will distance from home be an issue in Masina’s ultimate decision?
“It’s kind of a factor but nothing huge,” Masina said. “Nothing that’ll make me say no to a school.”
