Fehoko fights for 'Bama offer

Fehoko fights for 'Bama offer

Only a handful of players impressed Nick Saban and company over all four days of Alabama's camp this week, and Breidan Fehoko was one of them. The class of 2015 standout from Hawaii told BamaMag.com he wasn't leaving Tuscaloosa without an offer from the champs, and he accomplished his mission Wednesday.

Breiden Fehoko entered Alabama's camp already with more than a dozen offers to his name despite being just a class of 2015 prospect, but he was determined to add an offer from the defending national champions before heading back to his native Hawaii.

After a meeting with Nick Saban on Wednesday, his mission was accomplished.

The 6-foot-3, 275-pounder held his own during each day of competition.

"Oh it went awesome, just striving for that offer man," he told BamaMag.com earlier this week. "They love the way I play."

The style of play for Fehoko, who Scout projects as a defensive end at the next level, was a bruising one focusing on hand placement.

"He was demolishing people," said class of 2014 Alabama offensive line commitment Montel McBride, who was also at camp. "He was throwing hands down, and even got me a few times. He's so smooth with his hands, and beat me on the first rep.

"I had to change my approach with the guy. We went six or seven times against each other."

Even a coach on the camp staff couldn't say enough about the rising junior's effort.

"He was absolutely unblockable," said the source.

Everybody's opinion echoed that of the staff, eventually leading to the offer from the Crimson Tide.

"Love it!" he admitted. "I'm speechless right now. They offered me verbally."

Saying the offer from the top team in the land sits "pretty well" on his list despite more regional offers like Cal, Washington State, BYU, Oklahoma and others on the table -- It's safe to say it holds weight despite the immense distance from home.

"You know even though its a verbal (offer) it means a lot!" Frekoko admitted. "You know, to know that my hard work is up to their par it means a lot."
