Simi Fehoko appears to still be open to suitors, and one in particular.
The four-star Brighton wide receiver released his top 5 list of BYU, Utah, Michigan, Stanford and Washington in April, but another school could join that final group. It just has to extend an offer.
Fehoko, who was in the Pacific Northwest for The Opening Eugene regional competition, took an unofficial visit to the University of Oregon Saturday.
"(Oregon has) a great facility, great program, great coaches, all around just a great school," he told The Oregonian. "They are really up there. If they do pull the trigger, they are definitely up there."
Fehoko had a chance to speak with Oregon coaches during his visit and with the Ducks deploying an offense needing multiple playmakers, it appears there would be interest in the Brighton prospect.
Whittingham still on the hot seat?
The Utah football team went into the offseason with rumblings of discord between athletic director Dr. Chris Hill and coach Kyle Whittingham. The drama-filled period ended, however, with Whittingham agreeing to a new four-year contract extension.
But, some across the country still think Whittingham’s seat is a little warm.
CBS Sports rated each coach on a scale of 0-5 by how safe it thought they were heading into the 2015 season, and contract extension or not Whittingham is still in some danger.
Whittingham received a three, and according to the rating means he is “starting to feel the pressure,” or in his case continuing to feel it.
As for the other coaches in the state, BYU’s Bronco Mendenhall received a one, which means he is “very safe,” while Utah State’s Matt Wells got a zero, meaning he is “untouchable.”
