Simi Fehoko is the most recent commit to the BYU football Class of 2016, choosing the Cougars over Stanford, Michigan, Nebraska, Utah, and many others. The consensus 4-star recruit is one of the top wide receivers in the west and very much in the mold (tall and athletic) of other recent Cougar receivers like Mathews, Kurz, and Weeks. He runs a 4.53 forty and scored a whopping 24 touchdowns as a junior for Brighton. He announced his decision July 19, 2015 via Twitter:
Oh, he picked Stanford. Bummer.

As a junior he had 65 receptions for 1644 yards and 24 touchdowns. He also had 26 tackles and four interceptions on defense and returned a few punts on special teams. He was named to the Region 3 first-team and the 5A all-state first-team.
