Utah sophomore linebacker Uaea Masina faces his brother, five-star recruit Osa, this weekend vs. USC.

Osa has recorded 22 tackles and recovered a fumble for a 46-yard touchdown in his first collegiate game. His older brother has recorded two tackles this year, but could expect more playing time with Jared Norris perhaps unhealthy for Utah this weekend. 

Uaea also faces against one of Utah's top in-state football recruits, linebacker Porter Gustin — who also committed to and now plays for USC. 

“It's hard to explain, because in high school, we were on the same side, and now we'll face each other,” said Uaea, according to Salt Lake Tribune

“Mom's happy because she can cheer for both of us. She'd probably be more mad if one of us blew out the other.”
