RECRUITING: Savannah has in-home with WSU

BELLEVUE LINEBACKER <b>E.J. Savannah</b> had an in-home visit with Washington State this week. With Bellevue's season now complete and the goal of a fourth straight state title realized, Savannah is beginning to to focus on the recruiting side of things.

Bellevue's E.J. Savannah sat down for an in-home with coaches Bill Doba and Timm Rosenbach of Washington State this week. Savannah didn't have many questions.

"It went pretty good," said Savannah. "Because my mom and a coach of mine went there, I had a little insight on them already prior to the interview."

Savannah is cognizant of the linebacker tradition at WSU, but the Cougs might be on the outside looking in right now for the 6-1, 215-pound Savannah.

"They produce good linebackers, i.e. Will Derting. They're a good team and they're really somebody I've gotta consider as one of my options."

That said, Savannah had a few open spots for official visits, but didn't set one up when the Cougar coaches for a trip over to Pullman.

Washington State remains an option for the Bellevue, Wash., native, but at this time, the Cougs remain lower on his list than the five schools up top.

Savannah claims no leaders among his top 5 although it looks like Washington remains a real possibility.

Savannah has scheduled two trips to this point, to Tempe and Arizona State this weekend and then he'll travel to Eugene after the first of the the year to visit the Ducks.

"Last week I had about five colleges at my house. I have a trip to ASU this weekend. And then on January 7, I go to Oregon. And then I'm still looking to fill up my other spots."

Savannah recorded 72 solo tackles, 4.5 sacks and nine tackles for loss this season for the Wolverines.
