Breiden Fehoko spent three days at Alabama, landed an offer before he left Tuscaloosa, and is leaving with one thing on his mind: The Crimson Tide could be the team to beat.
"It was a great three-day camp," Fehoko said. "I got to work with some amazing coaches and I worked with a lot of amazing prospects. It was awesome.
"At the end of today I met with coach (Nick) Saban and we talked. He gave me that verbal. They're going to go and watch more film on me from the camp and then hopefully they're going to make that official on the first day of my junior year."
The 2015 prospect from Honolulu (Hawaii) Farrington has had a big off-season with many offers coming his way but Alabama stands out for many reasons. He loved working with the coaches. He loved competing against some top prospects.
It sounds like everything stood out about his visit.
"I enjoyed it, had a great time," Fehoko said. "I killed it out here. All the coaches had nothing but good things to say about me so I loved it.
"Getting (the official offer) would be huge for me knowing the kind of guys they recruit and kind of give me that sense of comfort that the things I'm doing are up to their par. It's such a great feeling for me.
"It was so awesome. Just to sit down with all these good prospects and just to work, it's such a different atmosphere out here. It really is."
The 6-foot-3, 275-pound prospect has now landed offers from Alabama, Cal, Clemson, Hawaii, Oklahoma, Pitt, San Diego State, Stanford, Texas Tech, Utah, Utah State, Washington State, Wisconsin and others.
Fehoko said he wants to keep all options open in his recruitment but when he talks about his new Alabama offer, the Crimson Tide seem to stand out at this point.
"I want to go through the recruiting process and at the moment I'm treating it all the same but Alabama, I'm definitely considering them," Fehoko said.
"Not only because they're national champs. What I went through these last three days has really opened my eyes up about their program. They're such hard workers over there. It's no fluke why they're national champions so I'm really considering them."
