After 5 TDs, Huggins Gives Visit Schedule

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Five-star running back Savon Huggins ran 11 times for 201 yards and five scores -- in the first half -- as St. Peter's Prep (Jersey City, N.J.) rolled over Bayonne 56-0 Friday night. Afterward, he spoke to about his performance, and also about his schedule for making official visits before announcing his decision.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. – After St. Peter's Prep (Jersey City, N.J.) five-star running back Savon Huggins gave the latest display why he is one of the most sought-after recruits in the nation, he gave an outline of his official visit schedule.

It begins with a Saturday morning trip to Notre Dame to watch the Irish play Western Michigan.

"Notre Dame (today), North Carolina at the end of the month," Huggins said. "Then, Florida in December and Rutgers in January, and I ‘m still trying to set something up with Pittsburgh."

Huggins will be in North Carolina when the Tar Heels host William and Mary on Oct. 30. His trip to Florida will likely be the weekend of Dec. 11 since it is likely he will be playing in the state title game the weekend of Dec. 4, which is also the weekend of the SEC title game, which the Gators remains in contention to play in.

The visit to Rutgers would be in the latter part of January since official visits must take place while school is in session, and Rutgers' first weekend after returning from winter break is Jan. 21-23.

However, for now Huggins' main focus is on the field, and Friday against overmatched Bayonne he was sensational.

Huggins ran 11 times for 201 yards and five touchdowns … in the first half of a 56-0 win. When Huggins left the game, the Marauders (5-1) held a 49-0 lead.

"It's not about my game, it's about our team getting better and going out and doing the little things,' Huggins said. "It was don't get complacent at all and take it as another game. It was a nice win and a good confidence builder for us."

During the rout Huggins displayed his patience waiting for plays to develop and for his blocks down field to materialize, his vision, his smooth stride, his elusiveness and his power. He made it look simple, but he said that isn't the case.

"It's from hard work. Nothing comes easy," Huggins said. "I don't like when things comes easy. I've never been that way, and it will never be that way. My hard work pays offs. It may come across (as easy), but it's from hard work."

The 6-foot, 200-pound Huggins scored on runs of 35, 1, 35, 11 and 29 yards, and also had a 4-yard touchdown run called back because of a hold. He also went over the 1,000-yard mark for the season midway through the second quarter and has 18 touchdowns.

"Yes (reaching 1,000 yards), that's achieving one milestone that was set, but I just want to get that ring," Huggins said of winning a state title. "That's my main goal. That's just one goal I set, and I still have more games left in my career."
