Former Brighton High star wide receiver Simi Fehoko certainly had a breakout 2020 season for the Stanford Cardinal, and now he’s looking to capitalize on that success by leaving school early for the NFL draft.
Fehoko announced on Twitter Monday that he will skip his senior season to enter the 2021 draft.
“It has always been a dream and goal of mine to play at the next level,” he concluded a written message. “I have decide to forgo my senior year and enter my name in the 2021 NFL Draft. Thank you to everyone who has been here for my journey. GO CARD!”

After tallying 566 receiving yards as a sophomore in a full 2019 season, the 6-foot-4, 227-pound Fehoko had 574 yards in the abbreviated 2020 campaign en route to garnering First Team All-Pac-12 honors.
In high school at Brighton, Fehoko set state records for career receiving yards and career receiving touchdowns, although both have since been broken.
