Via Twitter, defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko has decided to transfer from Texas Tech. I have transcribed his statement from Twitter:
Red Raider Nation,
It is with a heavy heart that I inform you all today I have decided to transfer from Texas Tech University. Lubbock since I was a little kid has been my home for as long as I could remember. My brothers, VJ and Sam, laid the foundation for me to live out my dream wearing the scarlet and black. To wear the double T was a privilege to honor those before me. HOwever, after a lot of self reflection and prayer, I have made the decision that it is in my best interest to pursue my academic and football career elsewhere. I would like to thank Mr. Kirby Hocutt, Coach Kingsbury and the entire Texas Tech Staff for all they’ve done for me during my time here. I want to also think my teammates for their constant support. To all Red Raider fans, y’all are the best, showing up every game day rain or shine. To the community of Lubbock, it was a honro to serve you-thank you. I always enjoyed the children’s hospital visits as well as the schools. No matter where I end up, I’ll always have a piece of Texas Tech with me.
Fehoko finished last year with 19 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, and 5 quarterback hurries. Fehoko was one of the highest rated recruits to play for Texas Tech and started as a true freshman as well as every game his sophomore year, which was this past year.
We wish Breiden and his family the best in their next stop.
