Oklahoma State Signs Junior College Defensive Lineman Seleti Fevaleaki

Fevaleaki graduated high school in 2017 but will only be a sophomore.

Oklahoma State has a strong pipeline to Snow Junior College, and it has proven fruitful again.

Seleti Fevaleaki, a 6-foot-2, 270-pound defensive lineman, signed with the Cowboys on Wednesday out of Snow, a college that has recently brought OSU the likes of Jaylen Warren, Sione Asi and Nathan Latu. Fevaleaki, an NJCAA First Team All-American, chose Oklahoma State over offers from Nebraska, Missouri, Indiana and others.

Fevaleaki was initially a part of the 2017 recruiting class, choosing to go to BYU over an offer from Boise State as a three-star prospect. He went on a Mormon mission prior to arriving at BYU, however, not joining the Cougars until the 2019 season, where he redshirted. He then gets the 2020 season back because of COVID, a season where he played 10 games for the Cougars and recorded six total tackles and a sack. He then transferred to Snow.

Of Tongan descent, Fevaleaki ending up in Stillwater likely had something to do with Oklahoma State player development specialist Beni Tonga, who has provided a pathway for a lot of Polynesian players to get to Stillwater.

Fevaleaki is one of four defensive linemen in the Cowboys’ 2022 recruiting class, joining incoming freshmen DeSean Brown, Landon Dean and Jaleel Johnson. Fevaleaki also joins offensive lineman Tyrone Webber and linebacker Xavier Benson as junior college products to sign with the Pokes this cycle. Webber and Benson were also named to the NCJAA All-America First Team, meaning OSU has now signed 12% of that team.
