Defensive lineman/offensive lineman Matthew Masifilo (6-3, 265, 4.8) from `Ewa Beach (Hawai'i) Campbell solidified his standing as one of the top three players from the Aloha State after an outstanding spring that saw him compete at the NIKE Camp held in Palo Alto, the Stanford football camp and the recently concluded Just Win Camp held the Hawaiian Island of Maui.
"The Just Win Camp was great," Masifilo said. "I met a lot of talented players from the Islands and it will be fun to see where everyone ends up."
"The Stanford Camp was great, too," Masifilo said. "I was able to get coached up a lot by both the offensive line coach (Tom Freeman) and the defensive line coach (Dave Tipton).

"While in Northern California I took an unofficial visit to Cal and I liked the Cal as well," Masifilo said. "Cal's defensive line coach (Ken Delgado) really impressed me. He presented himself great and did a great job explaining how Cal plays on the defensive line."
"It is making my decision much harder," Masifilo said. "I think I will end up going to a West Coast school."
"I'm for sure going to visit Stanford, Cal and Oregon," Masifilo said. "I'm not sure who I will visit with the other two visits or if I will take any other visits."

"The rest of the summer I'm just going to prepare for my senior season and get a head start on my academics."
