Will Ags land Fehoko?

It’s no secret Utah State would absolutely love to sign 4-star linebacker V.J. Fehoko from Hawaii.

The Aggies have reportedly been working hard to attract what could be the star recruit of the class but have some serious competition.

Fehoko took an official recruiting trip to Utah last weekend and the Utes have, reportedly, extended an offer. So has Washington, Texas Tech and Colorado according to a variety of Internet reports.

So how is Utah State managing to stay in the hunt for Fehoko’s services? That’s good question but one Aggie fans have not had to ask for a number of years. That a recruit of Fehoko’s caliber is still considering USU is an indication of coach Gary Andersen’s skills as a salesman. It’s also an indication that his staff is doing a tremendous job bringing in quality players that see USU as a program on the rise with an opportunity to become contributors on the playing field.

But will Fehoko chose Utah State?

One good indicator happened today when Timpview linebacker Ofa Latu accepted an offer from Utah. http://bit.ly/8tOg7H

Does that mean V.J. Fehoko more likely to accept USU’s offer? Not necessarily because Latu is planning on serving an LDS mission before enrolling at Utah, meaning Fehoko will not be competing with him for playing time for at least two years.

That said, some reports have Fehoko having crossed Texas Tech (coaching change), Washington and Colorado off his lists and debating between the Utes and Aggies.
