"Arizona offered me a scholarship and I think I'm going to take a visit there," Fellner said. "Arizona has me either going when they play Arizona State or the week after when they are having their big recruiting weekend."
"Colorado has also been showing interest in me and they are evaluating my highlight film," Fellner said. "Oregon was at my playoff game last week and they are still interested.
"I have also been invited by UCLA to the UCLA/USC game and I will probably go to that game, too."
