Brighton linebacker Uaea Masina was tempted by the offers from BYU and San Diego State, but in the end it was his love of Utah football that won out as the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Masina committed to the Utes on Sunday. "I loved the coaches and staff and it just seems like the right place for me," he said. Masina said his commitment is firm and he hopes to enroll at Utah early if possible. "I'm going to meet with the coaches this week and figure all that out," he said. Masina has formed a close relationship with Utah defensive coordinator Kalani Sitake, which helped sway his decision in going with the Utes. "I was just talking to him tonight and he didn't even know I'd committed," he said. "He was excited. I'm excited too. It's a 100 percent commitment."Masina is the 10th commitment for the Utes for 2013 and the fourth from Utah, joining Cottonwood High tight end Siale Fakailoatonga and his teammate and offensive lineman Haile Falemaka in committing to the Utes along with Woods Cross linebacker Filipo Mokofisi.
