Since then Masifilo picked another offer and is receiving serious interest from one the nation's top programs.
"I just received another offer from Utah and USC is now starting to recruit me," Masifilo said. "USC asked me to send out film and to attend their Rising Seniors Camp."
"I don't know if I'll be able to attend," Masifilo said. "I have to talk to my parents and see if it is feasible."
"It was exciting hearing from USC," Masifilo said. "They are the biggest West Coast football program."
Masifilo played primarily offensive line as a junior and earned second-team all-league honors.
Besides the recent offer from Utah the also has talented lineman has offers from Cal, Stanford, Oregon, Oregon State, Houston, San Diego State, UNLV, Nevada, Boise State and Hawai'i.
Masifilo is also being heavily recruited by Tennessee, Arizona, Washington, and Colorado.
Most of the colleges are recruiting Masifilo as a defensive lineman, but some like him on the offensive side of the ball.
In an earlier interview with Rivals.com Campbell coach Tumoana Kenessey had the following to say about Masifilo.
"Matthew is a very well-rounded athlete who participates in several activities such as the Science Fair, Drug Free Schools Program, No Child Left Behind and programs like that," Kenessey said. "He's a special young man and whoever gets him will be one lucky college."
"Matthew brings all aspects you want in a football player" Kenessey said. "He's very knowledgeable and he can play all five offensive line positions."
"Matthew has great explosiveness, great feet and great technique," Kenessey said. "He gets downfield in a hurry making blocks."
"Matthew has a lot of upside and has the work ethic to fulfill that upside," Kenessey said. "He pushes himself to the limit. Many times we have to slow him down."
