After a breakout performance in the 2020 season, Stanford Cardinal WR Simi Fehoko has announced his intentions to forgo his senior season at Stanford and enter the 2021 NFL Draft. Fehoko was named to the All-Pac-12 First-Team following a year that saw him emerge as the top pass-catcher in the conference, leading the Pac-12 in receiving yards with 584 and setting the Stanford single-game record for most receptions in a single outing.

Fehoko’s 18.5 yards per catch is the third-best in school history.

I would like to start by thanking my Heavenly Father. Without the constant blessings He has given me, I wouldn’t be where I am at today. I would also like to thank my family and my wife for being my rock and constant support throughout these crazy times; I am lucky to have them in my corner.

To Coach Shaw, Coach Pritchard, Coach BK, Coach Alamar and the rest of the coaching staff, thank you. Thank you for believing in me and giving me my shot to come here and play. Thank you for developing me into the player I am today.

Lastly, to my BROTHERS! These past three years I have made memories that I will never forget. I am grateful for the opportunity I had to attend Stanford and be surrounded by all of you. You are all teammates, you are all brothers, WE will always be family.

That being said, it has always been a dream and goal of mine to play at the next level. I have decided 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.

Fehoko enters the draft but said he’ll return to Stanford in the offseasons to work towards completing his communications degree.

He possesses a natural ability to high-point the football as well as soft hands and perhaps one of the most underrated releases in all of college football.

Fehoko’s size, strength, speed and route-running ability should make one NFL team very proud in the very near future. He’ll bully league cornerbacks with his release, just like he did this season at The Farm.

Remember, he’s going to be trouble for defensive backs all over the field.

Congratulations, Simi, we wish you nothing but the best! Go make Stanford proud!
