Mt. Tahoma's Satterwhite is one to watch

It's a big year for the state of Washington as far as football talent goes and one that has put up some impressive stats and garnered several post-season honors is Mount Tahoma's Immanuel Satterwhite. As many saw in his video highlights, Satterwhite is very gifted athletically and he's made some plans as far as camps and combines are concerned as well.

"I've been hearing from most of the local schools," Satterwhite told recently. "Washington State, Oregon, Oregon State and Idaho are sending me the most stuff.

"Washington has sent me a couple of things, but so far I haven't gotten very much from them."

Satterwhite's size isn't prototypical for a defensive end, but at 6-2, 225, he's a player who uses his impressive 4.6 speed to get around blockers to get to the quarterback.

"I can use my speed and I just go and attack every play," Satterwhite said. "Schools haven't really told me where they want me to play, but I've mainly just played with my hand down on the ground.

"I could end up playing linebacker...I'm not really sure where teams will want me at, but I know I like to rush the quarterback."

That's a bit of an understatement.

Satterwhite finished his junior season with 64 tackles and an amazing 16 sacks for Mount Tahoma and he earned 1st Team All-Narrows League honors and was also voted the Defensive Player of the Year as well.

"That was pretty cool getting that honor, but I don't do anything for myself," Satterwhite said. "Everything I do I want to get the team better and if that means me getting an award helps that then that's great. If not, I'm not too worried about it."

With the schools recruiting him, Satterwhite plans to attend one or two junior days and said he's also set up some trips to two combines as well.

"I'm going to the Scout combine in Los Angeles on the 29th of April and then the Nike Camp in Oregon in May," Satterwhite said. "I also want to go to Idaho's junior day (April 7th) as well as Oregon State's junior day, but I'm not exactly sure what the date on that one is."

Satterwhite grew up rooting for and dreaming of playing for Miami, but said his thoughts have turned closer to home recently.

"I loved the Hurricanes when I was a kid," Satterwhite said. "They dominated people and just smacked people around. I really liked that a lot.

"I sorta changed though because I don't want to go that far from home. I'm not saying for sure I will stay in state, but I will most likely end up out here on the west coast somewhere. I need to get offers first though."

We'll have more from Satterwhite as the spring evaluation period gets underway.
