“It’s been a crazy recruiting process,” Fehoko said. “I’m humbled for everything I’ve accomplished. When I first came out here and stepped foot in Lubbock, it was a different feeling and it just felt like home. The coaches were very welcoming and it felt like home. It’s not just football, it’s way beyond that. The way they treat me and the way they’ve treated my family, I said, ‘You know what? I’m ready to commit. I want to play ball in Lubbock for the next three or four years and I’m excited.’”
Fehoko is the 45th highest-ranked player in the nation and the No. 8 defensive tackle prospect. He chose the Red Raiders over offers from Alabama, Stanford, Oklahoma, Clemson, Ole Miss and many others.

“I went to the spring game yesterday and they showed me a lot of love,” Hinton told Rivals.com. “Even random people I didn’t even know, everyone there was just really nice.
“I met with some of the coaches this morning, then met individually with Coach Curtis. We sat down and talked for a little bit, then I told him that I wanted to commit. He was excited and we called Kingsbury to talk with him too. I’m ecstatic about my decision.”
At 5-foot-10, 211-pounds, Hinton is projected to play inside linebacker at the next level. As a junior, Hinton recorded 158 tackles including 27 for loss and five forced fumbles.
Hinton picked Texas Tech over offers from Louisiana Tech, Maryland, Texas State and UTSA. He is not rated by Rivals but is a three-star prospect on 247Sports.

Biggest question answered: Can Texas Tech’s receivers make up for the loss of Eric Ward and Jace Amaro? From a statistical standpoint, they will go down as two of the all-time greats among Red Raider pass-catchers, but Webb is confident this group can be even better. In addition to Grant and Marquez, he singled out Reginald Davis, D.J. Polite-Bray, Devin Lauderdale and Derreck Edwards as playmakers he’s excited to utilize this fall. “This is the fastest receiving group I’ve known since I’ve ever watched Texas Tech football,” Webb said.
