Huskies Make Huge Impression On Fehoko

Brighton (Salt Lake City, Ut.) WR Simi Fehoko was in Seattle this weekend for Washington's Junior Day and came away impressed with what he saw. The talented prospect recapped his visit and talked about what lies ahead in the short term for him...

"It was my first time ever in Seattle, so it was really a lot of fun," Fehoko told

"I loved it up there. The facilities were great and the setting, with the lake and mountains, it was beautiful."

One of the things that stuck out for many of the visitors, including Fehoko, was head coach Chris Petersen's presentation on what it takes to be a Husky football player.

"It was good to hear what he's looking for in the players he recruits and what traits he wants in guys that are 'OKGs'," Fehoko said. "He wants guys that work hard in the classroom and in practice and guys who have a passion for what they are doing.

"He definitely wants to set you up for life after football. It's that 'Built for Life' philosophy that they have and it was really impressive to hear them talk about it."

In addition to sitting through different presentations, Fehoko also got a chance to sit down with the position coach he would have if he chooses Washington.

"I've been talking with coach (Brent) Pease for a while, but it's the first time I got to meet him," Fehoko said. "He's produced a lot of great players and he knows what he's doing. I really enjoyed meeting with him and breaking off into our position meeting and going over his philosophy on things."

Fehoko currently holds offers from Washington along with Utah, Utah State, BYU, Stanford, Oregon State and Clemson.

While he'd like to take his official visits before he decides, he's not dead-set on when he will commit to a school.

"I'd love to take all of my trips, but I'm not really sure when I will make my decision," Fehoko said. "If I am ready to decide before my senior season, then I will commit, but if I need to wait and take all of my visits, then I will wait."

Fehoko put up ridiculous numbers this past season as a junior, hauling in 65 receptions for 1,644 yards and 24 scores and he said every school recruiting him likes him at receiver.
