It's never too early to look ahead, and the Utah coaches have done that with an early offer to 2015 prospect, Breiden Fehoko, younger brother of current Ute, V.J. Fehoko. The young Hawaiian was in town to take in Utah's Junior Day and talked about the experience.
"It was great. Utah is definitely up there. We got to tour the school and spend time with other recruits. I spent a lot of time with Mark Kruger and a few other guys. I liked hanging out with the commits like Filipo Mokofisi. I spent a lot of time with the coaches and really loved it."
Fehoko currently sits on two offers, and is talking to other schools, with more offers likely coming over the next 3 and a half years.
"Utah and Hawaii have offered. I've also been talking to Syracuse, Texas Tech, and UCLA."
With his brother already at Utah, Breiden has high opinions of the Utah coaching staff and is looking for a set of coaches that he can really trust.
"Utah is definitely up there. I talk to my brother almost every day and he tells me to find the school that is best for me and has people there that you can trust. He says that the Utah coaches are definitely people that you can trust. They really care about their players."
Despite still only being a freshman, Fehoko is quite the load at 6-2.5, 240 pounds, with plenty of room to grow into whatever spot on the defensive line suits his future body and skill-set best.
"It really doesn't matter to me which position I play. Wherever the coaches need me is where'll I go. I prefer (defensive) end, but it really doesn't matter."
While Fehoko is still almost four years away from signing his letter of intent, the Utah coaches still took the opportunity to try to get an early verbal out of him.
"I talked to Coach Sitake, Hill, and Coach Whittingham mostly. They were pushing hard for me this weekend to commit. I just need to find the right school that really wants me and when I do I'll commit, but Utah is up there at the top of the list."
