Hawaiian DE stock is lava hot

Defensive end/linebacker Sam Fehoko (6-2, 215, 4.65) from Honolulu (Hawai'i) Farrington has seen his stock start to boil after a great camp performance at the Just Win Camp recently held in Maui.
Fehoko's performance saw him earn the camp's defensive MVP award and he also garnered two offers due to his strong camp showing from Arizona and Weber State.
Oklahoma was also very impressed with Fehoko will will keep tabs on him during the season.
One thing that the Just Win Camp showcased for Fehoko was that he plays with great energy and has a non-stop motor. He is always going full speed and leaves it all on the field.
The news was getting out on Fehoko's talent because even before the camp he had offers from San Diego State (his brother Whitley Fehoko plays for the Aztecs), Utah, UNLV, BYU, TCU, Houston and home state Hawai'i.
The word is Colorado has a pending offer and could be the next school to join the ranks with an offer.
Some schools like Fehoko as a linebacker while others like him better as a guy who will play with his hand down.
What is Fehoko looking for in a school?
"I'm looking for academics first then how the football program operates," Fehoko said. "The college I chose should be strong in my major.
"I plan on majoring in communications and hope to play close to home somewhere California."
"I know offers don't come easy and want to say first all the credit goes to God," Fehoko said. "I also give a lot of credit to my brother Whitley.
"We do some crazy stuff to gain strength. We wake up early and go to UH (University of Hawai'i) and lift weights. Then we pull cars or anything we can do to gain strength. I've been pulling cars since I've been eight."
"My Dad has also been very helpful," Fehoko said. "He pushes me hard to be the best I can be..
"Even if I have 10 tackle, four sack game. He will still break every single thing down. Some might take that as criticism, but I take it as a motivational tool to become better.
"I also have to give a lot of credit to my Mom. She has always been helpful and supportive.
"You guys better look out for my younger brothers. The next in line is an incoming freshman and he is already getting looks from Boise State.
As a junior, Fehoko was an all-conference selection after racking up 77 tackles, 30 tackles for loss, 13 sacks two fumbles caused, two fumble recoveries and one interception.
