Savannah, a native of Bellevue, Wash., redshirted his true freshman season in 2005 and will enter his fourth season of collegiate eligibility this fall. Washington will support his desire to transfer to another institution, provided it is outside of the Pacific-10 Conference. He will be required to sit out the upcoming season due to NCAA transfer rules and will have one year of eligibility remaining.
"Our top priority is to help E.J. earn a college degree, whether that is at the University of Washington or at another institution," said
Willingham. "We have provided him with a tremendous support system during the last three years. I hope he is able to learn from his
experience at Washington and become successful in whatever he chooses to do in life."
