Fehoko 'Excited' to Receive Michigan Offer

Salt Lake City (Utah) Brighton 2016 WR Simi Fehoko talks Michigan offer, where U-M stand in his recruitment, a potential visit to Ann Arbor and more.

Michigan coach Jay Harbaugh reached out on Twitter to four-star wide receiver Simi Fehoko with a message to give him a call.

Fehoko replied right away -- and it's a good thing he did -- because Michigan gave him some unexpected news.

"So I called them and they said basically they like my film," Fehoko said. "They think I have a huge upside and that I can fit in there at Michigan."

Then, of course, Harbaugh extended an offer to Fehoko.

"I was excited," Fehoko said. "Michigan is a great school. [They have] big academics, big football program. it was exciting. One of the big offers.

"You know it's far from home, but I know they have a great program. A new coaching staff, which is good. Jay Harbaugh coming from the NFL (Baltimore Ravens), he's a good coach. I know they have a great program and they are great academic wise. That's one of my main interest is to get a good education."

Next up, the Great Salt Lake (Utah) Brighton standout plans on taking an unofficial visit to Michigan this spring/summer.

"Probably in the summer, yeah," Fehoko said. "Maybe in the spring. They were going to shoot me some [information] on spring practices and see if I can make it down there to check out their practice and stuff like that.

"I would like to connect with all of the coaches. just know where I fit in and feel the best. If I feel like I can really fit in there and see myself playing in Michigan, I would be excited to go up there and check it out."

As far as other notable schools of interest, Fehoko named Arizona State, BYU, Clemson, Stanford and Washington State as schools showing interest. He also said he has been on visits to BYU, Washington and USC, and plan on taking a trip to Stanford some time soon.

Fehoko says he plans on taking all five of his official visits and will commit close to signing day 2016.
