LB Prospect E.J. Savannah

Bellevue (Wash.) linebacker <b>E.J. Savannah</b>, one of the top defenders in Washington, has UCLA as one of his two leaders, and talks about the rest of his recruiting.

Bellevue (Wash.) High is home to two of the top players in the Evergreen State, and one of the top linebackers in the Northwest, in E.J. Savannah, 6-1 ½, 212.

Savannah has 8 offers altogether, from Washington, Washington State, Arizona, Arizona State, California, Oregon, Oregon State and Duke.

Interestingly enough, his top two choices have not offered.

"Stanford and UCLA are my two top schools. I'd like to hear more from both of them though. I'm just hearing a little from them. I don't know about Stanford though, I don't know if my grades can get me in," said Savannah.

After the Bruins and Cardinal, Savannah says everyone else is in the mix, and that he has no leader from amongst his offers.

"Its all pretty wide open. To be honest, I haven't really spent a lot of time this summer looking into schools. I'm more worried about De La Salle."

Bellevue opens up with the Spartans to start the 2004 season, and Savannah says while they would love to be the ones to end De La Salle's streak, the most important part is the preparation for it.

"We just got back from a camp at Fort Warden. It was ‘Remember The Titans' style. We just worked our butts off. It was like boot camp. But we spent a lot of time together as a team, and we walked away from that camp thinking everything is possible, thinking as a team."

Savannah did admit that a strong personal performance against the Spartans could help him in recruiting.
