College Football Recruiting: 4-star DL Breiden Fehoko commits to Texas Tech Red Raiders


It has been a great couple of days for the Texas Tech Red Raiders. 

After hosting the annual spring game on Saturday, the Red Raiders picked up a commitment from 3-star linebacker D’Vonta Hinton.

Then, on Monday, 4-star defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko gave his pledge to the Red Raiders.

“It’s been a crazy recruiting process,” Fehoko told Landon Wright of 24/7 Sports. “I’m humbled for everything I’ve accomplished. When I first came out here and stepped foot in Lubbock, it was a different feeling and it just felt like home. The coaches were very welcoming and it felt like home. It’s not just football, it’s way beyond that. The way they treat me and the way they’ve treated my family, I said, ‘You know what? I’m ready to commit. I want to play ball in Lubbock for the next three or four years and I’m excited.’”

The 6’3, 290-pound Fehoko attends Farrington High School and is from Honolulu, Hawaii.

He is ranked as the ninth best defensive tackle prospect, the second best overall prospect in the state of Hawaii and the 61st best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Fehoko, who chose the Red Raiders over offers from the Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers, among many others, will play with his brother V.J., who will be a freshman linebacker this season. Their older brother, Sam, also played linebacker for the Red Raiders.
