Local athlete Simi Fehoko picks up his first two offers, including one from Utah
Fehoko Lands First Two Offers
"It all happened really fast. I was shocked and excited by the two offers."
Utah had been monitoring Fehoko for sometime and finally pulled the trigger on Monday.
"Coach Tuiaki called me and told me they wanted to offer. Utah is a great program with great academics. I grew up a Ute fan and am friends with Jackson Barton and his younger brother (who was sitting next to him during the interview). My parents were really excited about the Utah offer."
Fehoko is also hearing from a Pac 12 school that has been a thorn in Utah's recruiting side in recent years, as well as a non-BCS program, but is hesitant to name a leader this early.
"Stanford has been in contact and so has BYU. I don't have a leader right now."
The junior to be is still in early in his recruitment, but know what he is looking for in a school.
"I'm mostly looking for a school that has a good combination of academics and sports."
Fehoko is still a raw athlete who is developing his game, but at 6-3, 175 pounds, he has plenty of upside and could end up on either side of the ball.
"Utah didn't tell me what position they offered me. We'll figure that out eventually."
Fehoko plans on attending Utah's next junior day this spring.
