'20 DE Sav'ell Smalls Talks UCLA/USC Visits, Michigan/Washington Offer and Earlier Trip to Oregon

Apr. 27 -- Although just a freshman, Seattle (Wash.) Garfield defensive end Sav'ell Smalls is already among the most coveted prospects in the region...


Looking at Sav'ell Smalls up close, you would never guess he was just a freshman. 

Smalls is listed at 6-4, 240 pounds and looked even bigger than that with a college body right now. He was playing a little linebacker at the recent Players of the Future 7v7 tournament but his future at the next level is playing with his hand in the ground as a pass rusher coming off the edge.

His film is tremendous and one of those rare tapes where you only need to see 2-3 plays before you can say, 'national recruit.' The fact that he has three more years to develop is scary as he already has not just the size, but next level athleticism, physicality, balance and change of direction.

Throw in a non-stop motor and a nice mean streak to boot and it's easy to see why the athlete already has six offers on table and should have double digits by the end of the spring. On top of that, he's a 4.0 (GPA) student and it's safe to say Smalls will have his choice of just about school in the country he wants to go.

While in SoCal, Smalls took unofficial visits to both Los Angeles schools, UCLA and USC and both programs have already offered.  Michigan,  Oregon,  Oregon State  and  Washington have also offered Smalls and the athlete said he is in no hurry to cut his list or make an early decision at this time.

Smalls broke down what he thought of the two L.A schools, his reaction to getting his first offer from the Huskies, how the Michigan offer went down and his earlier visits to Oregon.
