Early Offers Stand Out for Fehoko
Breiden Fehoko's family is no stranger to the recruiting process.
The 2015 Honolulu (Hawaii) Farrington defensive end has three brothers who have gone through it before him.
"They keep me humble and show me the ropes," Fehoko told FOX Sports NEXT. "[They've told me] to take it slow and ask a lot of questions."
In the first Scout 300 rankings released for the 2015 class, Fehoko made his debut as a four-star recruit, the No. 12 defensive end in the country.
His current list of offers match his talent level and there's still plenty of time for him to improve and collect more.
"Right now I'm taking the process slow," Fehoko told FOX Sports NEXT. "But schools like Alabama, Clemson, California, Oklahoma, Stanford [and Utah] -- they all just really stand out to me.
"What I like about those programs are the early relationships they've built with me," he said. "That's why I really appreciate those schools is because it shows that they built that trust foundation with me early."
Beyond the relationships built, Fehoko says he'd also like to step into a program where he is able to contribute early in his career and earn a valuable degree.
Two other programs who fit that bill for him include both Los Angeles schools, UCLA and USC. "I feel that they are going to offer soon. Both have phenomenal football programs and academic programs," he said.
Fehoko is a long way from cutting his growing list to a select few as he thoroughly does his homework and checks out a handful of campuses.
Over the summer he made his way to Tuscaloosa (Ala.) to participate in the Crimson Tide's summer camp. "It was such an amazing experience," he said. "I had such a blast meeting all the coaches... the culture is so different, the food is great, they're all about football so I love it down there."
He also made his way to the San Francisco Bay Area to participate in the Nike Football Training Camp. While in Northern California, he stopped by California and Stanford. "I love both schools," Fehoko said. "Both have phenomenal academic programs."
Now in his junior season, Fehoko is focused on improving the "little things," like his hands, feet and getting off his mark.
"Nowadays, it's all about technique," he explained. "Speed, power, but it all comes down to the basics and the fundamentals."
