Fehoko is the No. 245 player in the ’16 class, the No. 44 receiver, and the top player in the state of Utah per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He amassed seven offers in total with Clemson, Colorado, Michigan, Nebraska, Stanford, Utah, and Washington all doing the honors.

On the Stanford front, he was recruited by Lance Anderson, who pulls double duty as the linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator, while running backs coach Tavita Pritchard served the role of secondary recruiter.

Fehoko is the fourth four-star recruit in the Cardinal ’16 class, one that ranks No. 13 nationally and No. 3 in the Pac-12 per the 247Sports Team Rankings.

As a junior in 2014, Fehoko put up eye-popping numbers, catching 65 passes for 1,644 yards.

Stanford was the total package as a student-athlete and had everything Fehoko was looking for as he told Trevor Phibbs of the Salt-Lake Tribune.

“Overall, Stanford is a hard to miss package,” he explains. “It has everything that you could want in a college.”

This is a great pickup for the Cardinal. Fehoko’s speed and pass-catching ability will allow the program to be able to open up their offense and give them a playmaker that can stretch the field and make the most out of every reception, particularly in yards-after-the catch opportunities. It will be interesting to see how he will impact the offense when he steps on the gridiron.
