Colorado lands Utah defensive end T.J. Fehoko

Doug Pensinger

Fehoko is a high motor defensive end that is a big-time pick up for Mike MacIntyre and staff.

According to Rivals' Rob Cassidy the Colorado Buffaloes have landed a verbal commitment from Utah defensive end T.J. Fehoko. The lineman made the call to the Buffs coaching staff last evening after building a strong relationship with coach Jim Jeffcoat. He had already earned eight scholarship offers and was receiving interest from a number of Pac-12 schools (in addition to his offers from Colorado and Oregon State). Fehoko is one of the best prospects in the state of Utah and is a great get at a position of need for the Buffaloes.

Fehoko becomes the third commit in the 2015 class along with California linebacker N.J. Falo and Colorado lineman Dillon Middlemiss.

Welcome aboard, T.J! You can check out the rest of his highlights here.

Notes: From Rivals ($): "I knew for a couple days," Fehoko said. "I decided this week and talked it over with my family. They loved everything about Colorado, too. It was a perfect fit for everyone, really."

Fehoko, who picked Colorado over offers from Vanderbilt, Oregon State, Utah and others, says it was his relationship with CU defensive line coach Jim Jeffcoat that set the Buffs apart from the pack. The fact that he was impressed by what he saw when he attended the program's spring game a few weeks ago certainly didn't hurt the cause, either.

"The way they recruited me meant a lot," Fehoko said. "They showed no hesitation offering me and showing me a lot of love. I really appreciated that and the way they went about things."
