Ex-Cal DE Sione Sina officially added to Utes

Nearly two weeks after reports surfaced that Sione Sina was leaving one Pac-12 football program for another, that move has officially come to fruition.

Utah confirmed Monday that Sina has joined the Utes’ camp as part of the “105" roster last week after the senior decided to leave Cal. Because the defensive end comes in as a graduate transfer, he’ll be eligible to play immediately in 2015.

Provided he’s healthy enough to take the field, of course.

A three-star JUCO signee in the Class of 2013 and mid-year enrollee, Sina neither participated in spring practice nor played that season due to unspecified injuries. Injuries, again unspecified, kept him out of spring practice, specifically the contact portion, the following year as well.

Then, he played in the second game of the 2014 season against Sacramento State, but did not play again last year because of injuries. Sina subsequently left the Cal football team prior to spring practice earlier this year and joined the Cal rugby team, taking part as a starter in the national championship game of that sport this past May.
