Three-star defensive lineman/offensive lineman Matthew Masifilo (6-3, 265, 4.8) from `Ewa Beach (Hawai'i) Campbell senior season was slowed down due to an injury.
When Masifilo was playing he, and his Campbell teammates were off to a 2-0 start and were 0-3 until last Friday Night when Campbell got back on the winning track with a 20-6 victory over Honolulu (Hawai'i) Radford.
It was a must win for Campbell to stay in the playoff hunt and now starting this week Masifilo will be back in action for their playoff run.
The downside of Masifilo's injury is he hasn't been able to play much defensive line like he had hoped and when he returns he will be anchoring the offensive line.
Though Masifilo hasn't seen any action on the gridiron in a month, he is still being recruited by most of the Pac 10.
"Stanford, Cal and Oregon are still my top three," Masifilo said. "Navy is beginning to recruit me heavily, too. I'm getting a lot of packets with handwritten letters from everyone on their coaching staff."
"Right now though I can't wait to get back on the field to help my team win," Masifilo said. "I won't decide on what schools I will visit until after the season."
"I have received phoned calls from Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Stanford, Cal, Boise State, Utah, Colorado and others," Masifilo said. "I was honest with all the schools that have called me.
"I told them I had three top schools. The four schools that call me the most are Oregon, Washington, Stanford and Cal."
Masifilo saw his stock rise because of a standout off-season. He competed and worked on his skills at the NIKE Camp held in Palo Alto, the Stanford football camp and the Just Win Camp held the Hawaiian Island of Maui.
Masifilo played primarily offensive line as a junior and earned second-team all-league honors.
Rivals.com rates Masifilo as the nation's No. 22 strongside defensive end prospect for the class of 2007. He also made the Rivals.com Hawaii top 20 team landing as the Aloha State's No. 2 prospect at any position.
