Jakori Savage, who is 6-6 1/2, 275 pounds, says he enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with Auburn’s coaches. “It was fun and I learned a lot of stuff about the school and about the tradition,” he says.
“We got to see the cafeteria, the field, we went to the facilities, the workout facilities and the indoor field,” he points out. “We saw the locker room and everything.”
The offensive lineman notes he has a half dozen early scholarship offers with Jacksonville State, Southern Miss, Tulane, Alcorn State, Alabama A&M and Troy wanting him to join their teams. He plans to visit Troy this weekend.
Asked about interest from Auburn, Savage says, “They didn’t say anything about offers, but they want me to come to some of the camps this summer.”
Savage notes that he expects to move to left offensive tackle for his senior season after starting at right tackle as a junior.
He recently wrapped up his junior season in basketball and says he averaged around “10 to 12 points a game” as the team’s starting center. In the spring he competes in the shot put and has a best throw of 42 feet.
Just 16 years old with excellent size and an “A” student in the classroom, he is one of the more interesting junior prospects in the state of Alabama for the 2016 signing class.
