To say Simi Fehoko was dominant in 2014 would be an understatement. The wiry wide receiver was arguably the most dominate athlete in Utah this past season. Hauling in 65 receptions for 1,644 yards and 24 touchdowns, the talented junior smashed a number of state records. He also chipped in 28 tackles and 3 interceptions playing free safety for the Brighton Bengals. The scary part is the four-star athlete is just scratching the surface of his ability.
"This past season was fun," Fehoko explained. "But there is a lot of work to do this off-season. I am not satisfied. I can get faster, stronger, and work on my route running. Truly, there isn't an area where I can't greatly improve. That's the game plan these next few months. I want to become a better leader for my team and really take some initiative this off-season. Osa (Masina) is gone and we need some guys to step up. That's what I plan to do."
The talent and potential of the rangy receiver/safety is bound to bring in more than a few P5 schools to Utah during the spring evaluation period coming up. Fehoko's offer sheet has been growing in the past few weeks.
"I've picked up offers from Oregon State, Stanford, and Washington," Fehoko claimed. "It's pretty exciting. I have a number of quality programs that have extended an offer my way and I am really grateful to every school."
"Stanford is one of the dream schools. Academics mean a ton to me and Stanford has such a great blend of football and academics. I went out there last summer to visit campus and I love it. They will definitely be one of my top schools."
"I also really like Washington. I went up there for their junior day this weekend and loved it. The coaching staff, campus, and atmosphere up there is special. I love UW."
The in-state programs are also in consideration for the talented receiver.
"I actually went up to Utah tonight for an unofficial visit," Fehoko shared. "That was pretty cool. It was like a junior day, just for me and my family. I like the Utes. Coach Scalley has taken over my recruiting and he has been in contact with me a lot. I'm also really high on BYU. They've been recruiting me as hard as anyone. I've been down to Provo for a number of unofficial visits and really like it down there. I could really see myself staying home for college or leaving the state. It's hard to go wrong."
Fehoko has a few other schools that he is hoping to land offers from.
"Notre Dame, USC, and UCLA are a few schools that I'm hearing from that I'd love to pick up offers from," Fehoko said. "They have a great blend of academics and football. I'm just in the process of building relationships with coaching staffs and learning as much as I can about the different programs. I am in no rush to make my decision. I watched Osa go through the process and really learned a lot from him."
