Honolulu (Hawaii) Farrington defensive lineman Sam Fehoko said a week ago he would be taking an official visit to Hawaii. A high school all-star game ended those plans and now the rush end will take his visit this coming weekend.
Fehoko, 6-1, 215 pounds was just named the state Gatorade Player of the Year after a big senior year that saw him rack up 23 quarterback sacks. The athlete will play defensive end in college but could also see time as an outside linebacker.
On the recruiting front, Fehoko postponed his visit to Hawaii although he still spent quite a bit of time on the UH campus.
"I still went to the game Saturday night and was also at the football banquet on Sunday," Fehoko said. "I had all-star activities going on so I wanted to wait and take my official visit on a weekend where I didn't have anything else going on. I'm going this weekend (Dec. 8) and then will visit San Diego State (Dec. 15).
"It was a great game with Oregon State and they almost pulled it out in the end. I met a lot of the recruits that were there and had a really good time. The banquet was fun too. I'm really familiar with the football program at UH because I've been around it so much and I've really developed a good relationship with all the coaches, especially Coach Reinebold, the defensive line coach.
"I also talked with Coach Wilson from Oklahoma last week and we talked about setting a visit date for sometime in January. Then I'm going to keep those last two visit dates open and see what develops after I play in the Max Emfinger All-American game. My brother picked up a lot of new offers after the game and I'm hoping to do the same."
