Savannah Does In-Home with Arizona

<b>E.J. Savannah</b> was recently named the state of Washington's defensive player of the year despite missing four games. He has narrowed his list down to five or six schools and has three visits remaining.

Savannah visited ASU last weekend and had already visited Arizona on September 17th. He will now trip to Cal next weekend, Oregon January 7th, and Colorado January 14th. "Those are my final schools," said the 6-1, 215 pound linebacker. "I am also still looking at Washington now that they got Willingham. That is big-time for them. I was not considering them because of the coaching situation, but I'd say they are an option now. I don't think I will use an official visit to go there because I want to take them out-of-state, but I could go there on a visit."

He does not currently claim a leader. "I don't have a favorite. I am going to take all of my visits before deciding."

Savannah says that Oregon and Arizona are showing the most interest.

Coach Dunn was at his home last week. "Coach Dunn was here on Wednesday night. It was a good visit. I still really like Arizona."

Something that could be a factor in his recruitment is that his highly regarded teammate, J.R. Hasty, is being recruited by three of the same schools as he is. Arizona is not one of those schools. They are Arizona State, Colorado, and Oregon. The two would like to play together if possible, but it is not a necessity.

Savannah record 90 tackles, two interceptions, and seven sacks this season. He missed four games with a pinched nerve.

He carries a 3.0 cumulative GPA and scored a 1000 on his SAT. The inside/outside linebacker would like to major in Business.
