Savannah Schedules Trip to Boulder

<b>E.J. Savannah</b> was named the state defensive player of the year in Washington this fall despite missing four games. Coach Cabral was in his home for a visit Sunday night. Colorado is the only school outside the Pac Ten the four star linebacker is looking at. His teammate, <b>J.R. Hasty</b>, was the offensive player of the year in the state and he is also being recruited by CU.

"I know Colorado is recruiting him, but I am not sure if he will be taking the visit with me there," explained the 6-1, 215 pound linebacker. "Oregon, Arizona State, and Colorado are the only schools recruiting both of us."

Savannah says that he and his running back teammate would like to play together, but it is not a necessity. Both are ranked among the top players in the nation at their respective positions.

Coach Cabral and the Savannah family had a good visit. "He really wants me to visit them. I have scheduled it for the 14th of January. I would like to see what it is like outside of the Pac Ten. I want to see what the college life is like in another conference. It is not a big factor for me on what conference I play in, but I would like to see somewhere else."

The Washington star says that CU started recruiting him a couple of games into the season. A season which saw him record 90 tackles, two interceptions, and seven sacks. He missed four games with a pinched nerve.

Savannah visited ASU last weekend and had already visited Arizona on September 17th. He will now trip to Cal next weekend and Oregon January 7th. "Those are my final schools. 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.

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