ESPN has a scouting report now:

Fehoko plays the game fast, physical and with a relentless motor. While he may not project particularly high as a positional prospect it's hard not to like this guy a lot as a total football player. Lacks ideal height as 'tweener outside linebacker / defensive end prospect but is thick, well-built and plays bigger. Has been a disruptive perimeter player throughout high school but actually may project better as an inside linebacker and a pass-rush specialist on passing downs. Has a quick first step off the ball and generates good short-area power. Jolts blockers back at the point of attack and display very strong hands and upper-body strength. Plays with good leverage and a strong, wide base. Lacks great fluid through his hips but can bend and get down the line of scrimmage. Not overly fast but has good chase and football speed. Not a sideline-to-sideline guy but shows good short-area speed and quickness. Shows good closing burst and runs through ball carriers on contact. While he makes a lot of plays near the line of scrimmage, he can struggle changing direction sharply and has a tendency to overrun the play. His stiffness could be masked if employed in the middle or strong side and asked to fill more downhill. We feel he may struggle breaking down and matching up on the perimeter versus quicker D-I skill players as a perimeter 'backer. A better vertical attacker than a lateral pursuer. That said, defensive end is still not out of the question despite his lack of height. He displays good get-off and an initial push upfield as a run defender and can beat blockers to the corner as a pass rusher with his combination of speed and strong hand technique. Overall, Fehoko lacks ideal measurables but brings a lot to the table as a total football player. Could make an impact if used creatively, we like his potential as a 3rd down edge rusher/blitzer and linebacker on run downs. Good prospect and a heck of a football player.

 

But unless they get cracking, it doesn't look good for Nebraska:

Fehoko could be top player on the Islands

 

It was a very strong year for talent in Hawaii last year in both depth and blue chip talent at the top of the board. The class of 2010 doesn't look quite as strong but one player that is making a ton of national noise is Farrington (Honolulu, Hawaii) athlete V.J Fehoko.

 

Fehoko is the third Div I recruit in the family as his older brother Whitley signed with San Diego State three years ago and Sam was a red-shirt freshman at Texas Tech this past season. Neither player received anywhere near the attention that V.J is receiving right now.

 

"It's really incredible what's happening for him," Fehoko's mother Linda said. "He's up to 16 or 17 offers right now with Wyoming being the most recent school. It has been so exciting to watch and we're excited to see how everything works out for him."

 

As a junior, Fehoko racked up 86 tackles, 18 for loss, 19 sacks and forced five fumbles. The athlete lines up at both defensive end and outside linebacker and is moved all over the field. He's a talented pass rusher with a nice burst, is very strong and knows how to get up the field.

 

"Right now, some of the schools that have offered me are Texas Tech, Nebraska, UCLA, Cal, Notre Dame, Washington, Colorado, BYU, Utah and several others. I'm also hearing from Alabama, Tennessee, Auburn and a few others.

 

"My top five would be Texas Tech, UCLA, Washington, Cal and Hawaii. I plan to take my visits though and I'm not going to make an early commitment anywhere."

 

According to Linda Fehoko, there are several factors pulling her son in different directions.

 

"With Texas Tech, V.J is very close with Sam," Linda said. "The only concern is we have no idea what is going to happen with the coaching staff because of the contract dispute going on. Sam likes it there a lot but I think ultimately, V.J knows he has to do what is best for him.

 

"At UCLA, we love Norm Chow and he's a legend here. He has been recruiting VJ for awhile now and we think he's just a great man. Another school that is up there is Notre Dame because V.J and Manti Te'o are very close and Manti is already telling VJ he needs to come and play with him there.

 

"I know that surprised a lot of people when Manti chose Notre Dame but we all thought he was going to pick them just by how much he talked about them. VJ, Manti and Robby Toma have been close since childhood but like I said, V.J will make the best decision for him and won't let what others want him to do influence his decision."

 

Fehoko is carrying a 3.4 GPA and scored an 1160 on the SAT. He'll attend the all-Poly camp in Hawaii as well as the NIKE Camp at Stanford. He may take an unofficial visit to Cal while he's down for the NIKE Camp as well.

Still plenty of time though. And some of the comments note that he is pretty open. Getting him for a visit will be key.

BOUNTIFUL, Utah -- Under Armour All-American linebacker V.J. Fehoko (Kahuku, Hawaii/Kahuku) was already familiar with the recruiting process before it even began for him.

 

Fehoko's older brother, Sam, signed with Texas Tech in the Class of 2007. Another brother, Whitley, signed with San Diego State in the Class of 2006.

 

"When you see the process unfold as a spectator, it's exciting," V.J. Fehoko said. "But when it happens to you, it's sort of a reality check."

 

Hawaii, Nebraska, Tennessee, Oklahoma State, Utah, Texas Tech, Washington, California, UCLA, Colorado and other schools in the Mountain West and WAC have offered Fehoko a scholarship. Southern California is seriously evaluating the hard-hitting linebacker, as well.

 

"I have no favorites," he said. "I am giving every school a chance to recruit me."

 

Fehoko was in Lubbock, Texas, during the spring to watch his brother's spring game and he got an up-close look at the Red Raiders. This caused some speculation that he too would be casting his lot with Mike Leach's program.

 

"The only reason I was there was to see my brother's spring game," he said. "If he had not been playing for Texas Tech, chances are I would not have been at Texas Tech visiting for that long."

 

Still, that certainly doesn't mean the Red Raiders aren't under heavy consideration. One of the things that Fehoko is looking at is atmosphere. He says he wants to go to a place where on gameday, the "town stands still" and says that the atmosphere in Lubbock is like that.

 

"When they beat Texas this past year, they rushed the field like three times," he said.

 

Most of the Hawaiian prospects that talked recruiting at All-Poly expressed a strong desire to head to the mainland to play college football. V.J. has a lot of teams from the mainland in the mix for his services, but has not ruled out the University of Hawaii, where his father Vili is the unofficial mascot for Warriors football games.

 

"I am going to give Hawaii a chance," V.J. Fehoko said. "I like Hawaii. Growing up with my dad there, I was always watching the games from the sidelines and I still feel that is home to me when I watch."

 

Fehoko talked about the things he would be looking for in a program.

 

"The crucial factor for me is my position coach," he said. "That's key because I will be building a relationship with him and he will be the one developing me for the next 4-5 years. I also would like to have a good relationship with the head coach for that same reason. I want to be in a good environment, too. Not some place where I can get in trouble and I can just focus on football and academics."

 

Jeez, those bold parts really, really seem to describe our team to a tee. Imagine if he hit it off with Bo and Ek... he'd be ours to lose...

idk, if you party in lincoln(like most college kids do), its hard not to run into johnny law sooner or later... the fact that Bo & co. have a strong stance on the issue helps, but that can't always stop a kid from going out on saturday nights

True. But I think Manhattan is more of a party town, but wherever you go you know that there will be a party somewhere. I think Bo is doing an excellent job teaching the players to keep their head on straight.

I live in Manhattan now and lived in Lincoln in the 80's. Mancrappin is no where the party town that Lincoln is. Granted, I'm a little older now and don't party much, but I worked at K-State and can tell you that they have nothing on Lincoln here. One of my employees ( KSU student) went to NU's spring game this year and Loved Lincoln because " Lincoln knows how to party!!" :clap

BOUNTIFUL, Utah -- With talent from Utah, the West Coast and the Hawaiian islands all flocking to the All-Poly Camp, it's easy to see why this has grown into one of the most popular and successful events.

 

Despite many of the region's top recruits on the field at Bountiful High School, it didn't take long to pick out one of the premier athletes at this year's camp. After just a few agility drills it was easy to see that Under Armour All-American LB V.J. Fehoko (Honolulu, HI/ Farrington) is a special player. He is extremely agile and much more fluid in his movements than anticipated. Fehoko's feet barely touched the ground as he moved over and through the bags, and when he dropped his hips to change direction. At 5-foot-11, 215 pounds, he might not be the biggest linebacker in the country, but it would be tough to find one with the same athleticism and skill level.

 

[+] EnlargeV.J. Fehoko

JC ShurburttUnder Armour All-American LB V.J. Fehoko stood out among a talented field at the All-Poly Camp.

Fehoko is one of those players who has trouble practicing at thud tempo. Dialing it down just isn't a natural reaction. Even though the teams were just timing up, Fehoko was ready to play. He attacked the first inside run and the crack of the pads on the form tackle echoed throughout the stadium. At the urging of the coaches, he did tone things down, but this guy takes his football seriously. Fehoko was precise in his reads and his movements on every play. He has been coached so well that his reactions and fundamentals are now natural. The little things like not crossing your feet when you shuffle and not taking a false step as you attack the line of scrimmage are instinctive to him.

 

Fehoko proved in the first day of the All-Poly Camp that he is the same intense and high-motor football player who shows up on film. He never quits until the play is over, and he is usually the guy making the play. He is good on the blitz, as his timing and quick first step make him difficult for any offensive lineman or running back to pick up. As aggressive as he is against the run and when blitzing, he can also be a solid under coverage pass defender. He shows the ability to snap the hips open on pass read and immediately get the proper depth to cover the middle hook zones.

 

It is no accident that this guy loves the game. He's from a family of football players, including brothers, uncles and cousins like Class of 2009 No. 1 LB and No. 2 overall recruit Manti Te'o, who signed with Notre Dame in February. Just like Te'o, Fehoko can pretty well pick the school of his choice, with nearly 20 Division I offers already going into his senior season.

 

Maybe the greatest thing about Fehoko is the fact he is just as good a person off the field as he is on it. He has the personality and leadership qualities coaches love to see. Fehoko has great family support and works hard to uphold the family pride and tradition. This is reflected in the fact that he is also an outstanding student with a 3.6 GPA and is considering pre-law as his college major. Like most talented athletes he would like to play early at the next level, but Fehoko is mature enough to understand that the college game is different. He knows the complexity of the game increases at each level of competition and that to reach the goals he aspires to will not be easy. There are no sure bets in athletics in terms of a player being a difference-maker, but the odds are heavily in favor of Fehoko going a long way.

Fehoko would be a great addition to this class... It would definitely get the ball rolling for defensive studs. Rivals had an article about Bo recruiting him personally... probably nothing cuz all I got was the teaser. Probably just dreamin out loud here. We haven't had much luck with getting Poly kids to come to Nebraska lately.

I have trouble getting amped about the poly guys. We did have a pipeline back in the day but we were a national power then and I think there was a little less competition for these guys. I think we'll eventually get a foothold going again but right now I tend to be pessimistic and figure they're headed for one of the Utah or Pac schools. He would be a great get though.

Four-star linebacker V.J Fehoko (Honolulu, Hawaii/Farrington) is having a monster senior season and has definitely shown he's one of the elite prospects in the entire West region this year.

 

Fehoko is a high-motor player and can really get after the quarterback. In just eight games this year, the athlete has 28 sacks including two games where he racked up five sacks.

 

On the recruiting front, Fehoko has all but narrowed his focus to three teams and is hopeful of taking all of his visits in December.

 

"Texas Tech, Utah and Washington are the three schools I'm looking at right now," Fehoko said. "I haven't set up any of the trip dates yet because we're in the playoffs, but if it works out, I should be able to take them all in December so I can make an announcement at the Under Armour All-American game."

i see this guy every day in the halls outside my classroom... he's pretty tapped out looking with a gnarly poly tat with the words

'lights out' under his name.... actually never bugged him or talked to him very much about recruiting or visits..... i bet he ends up at TT with his bro.. he has a lot of pressure to attend University of Hawaii (UH) plus his dad is the school mascot during football games (the crazy hawaiian warrior guy) but i think he bolts as our coach is about to be fired (eventually soon)......

 

a nice local kid whom everyone is proud of... usually this school 'farrington' produces some top talent...

 

i'm doing my best to promote nebraska!!

 

so far not too much luck

Four-star ILB V.J Fehoko (Honolulu, Hawaii/Farrington) will take his first official visit Thursday to Washington. The talented linebacker can't wait to get to Seattle.

 

"I'm so pumped up to get there," Fehoko said. "I leave at 2:00 today and it's going to be a great time. This is my first official visit and I'm excited about that but it's also my first time visiting Washington and I can't wait to see the campus and meet the players and coaches.

 

"Washington has been recruiting me hard from the beginning and I'm the first one in my family to be recruited by them. The coaches always get me excited when I talk to them and I'm definitely feeling the Huskies in my heart right now."

With his family connections, Texas Tech always seemed like the team to beat for Farrington (Honolulu, Hawaii) linebacker V.J Fehoko. After a great visit to Washington, it appeared the Huskies were in a good spot. However, a visit to Lubbock this past weekend has the Red Raiders back on top.

 

"Texas Tech is definitely the team to beat right now," Fehoko said. "I had a perfect visit, it was just an incredible time. First off, my host was my brother Sam and it was great to see him again. We're really close and growing up, he was like my idol so it was just a great experience to be around him again.

 

"I love the coaching staff and they were my first offer so they have always been high on my list. I visited unofficially before but this visit was way different. All the coaches were great and never pressured me the entire visit. Other schools I've talked with kind of put on a hard sell to me and tried to get me to commit but that's not really my style and the Tech coaches were just so easy to be around.

 

"I spent a lot of time with Coach (Mike) Leach along with Coach (Brian) Mitchell, who's my recruiting coach and Coach (Ruffin) McNeil, who's the defensive coordinator. They're all great guys and I have such a great comfort level with them. Coach Mitchell is a family friend and they told me they have big plans for me in that defense so that's exciting to hear."

 

Being able to see how passionate Texas football is was also eye opening for Fehoko.

 

"Man, you always hear about how crazy the fans are in Texas and how big football is but to actually see it first hand was incredible," Fehoko said. "The atmosphere was incredible and unlike any place I've ever been and I didn't even go on a game weekend. There were fans coming up to me who knew who I was telling me how bad they wanted me to come to Tech.

 

"Football is just crazy there and that's what I'm looking for. When you combine how great the coaches were with the environment and being around my brother all weekend, like I said, just a perfect visit and it's going to take a lot to beat out Tech right now."

Despite former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach's recent firing, Farrington (Honolulu, Hawaii) linebacker V.J Fehoko said he still has a high interest in the Red Raiders.

 

Fehoko, a talented linebacker prospect, took official visits to Washington and Texas Tech and said he plans to take three more before making his decision. He called Tech his leader after his visit but that was before the Leach firing.

 

"I still like Tech a lot," Fehoko said. "I've heard great things about coach [Tommy] Tuberville, and I was actually able to talk to him already a few nights ago. He was really cool and I think he'll do a great job. It looks like they're going to keep coach [brian] Mitchell too and he was the one recruiting me so that's another plus.

 

"I still want to see how the home visit goes and the whole Leach thing definitely threw me off but I still feel strongly about them. I haven't set a date for the home visit with them yet but I will sometime this month. January is going to be crazy for me for sure."

 

Fehoko said he would like to visit Utah, Utah State and Hawaii before making his decision.

Fehoko told the Salt Lake Tribune he has narrowed his list of choices to Utah and Utah State. He also said that he's not sure when he's going to decide.

 

"Im'a try by next weekend," Fehoko said via text message. "But I'm not sure."

 

He said that the coaching situation at Texas Tech is in too much flux for him to choose the Red Raiders, despite his brother playing there.

One of the things that Fehoko is looking at is atmosphere. He says he wants to go to a place where on gameday, the "town stands still" and says that the atmosphere in Lubbock is like that.

Well, I suppose wherever Utah and Utah State are, those towns stand still, but what happened to UCLA, Washington, Cal?

This is a great move and I think more schools need to have kids make commitments before SIGNING DAY. Signing Day is just that, when you sign your letter of intent. At least it is only less than 20 of the top 150 kids that are playing this out for the media. Too many schools are holding the bag without getting their intended targets.

 

Some kids have three finalists and some have 5. The schools not picked have to scramble on signing day to get a commitment from their next target. I think the system needs to be changed.

totally focused on owa watch that i didn't even think to ask where he was goin.

 

I'm starting to get a headache. Let me try again: Utah State pulled Fehoko's offer after he couldn't guarantee them a commit Wednesday. ok? :)

With Utah State and Hawaii linebacker V.J. Fehoko deciding to go separate ways -- a source at Utah State told the Deseret News Monday night that coach Gary Andersen told Fehoko that the Aggies needed an answer before it was too late to fill the spot with another targeted player -- the Aggies have received a verbal commitment from Miami Jackson High linebacker Tavaris McMillan.

 

"They needed to make sure they got a good linebacker with this class with that offer," the source said. "They felt like if V.J. wasn't ready to commit it was time to move on."

Which Aggies? Texas A&M?

 

At least VJ was honest about it. I'm sure he'll end up somewhere fine.

Oh. I totally misunderstood the post about Aggies, and I forgot that Utah State is also the Aggies. I thought you were saying he was leaving Utah State for a different team named the Aggies. I'm up to speed now. :thumbs
