LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- There are numerous uncommitted players competing in this week's Under Armour All-America Game, but while some will announce their college selections Wednesday night, Rivals100 running back Savon Huggins seems to be in no real hurry.
With signing day less than a month away, he claims to have no leader.
In fact, on Monday, Huggins even uttered the "I'm open" line.
Huggins, a four-star standout from Jersey City, N.J., has taken three official visits and has plans to go on two more. Thus far, he has tripped to Notre Dame, North Carolina and Auburn.
"I'm going to Michigan State on Jan. 14 and Rutgers Jan. 21," he said.
According to Huggins, his commitment will go to one of those five schools. But when interviewed after Under Armour practice Monday, the 6-foot, 190-pounder wasn't giving any hints as to who had the edge. Asked if any program were in the lead, he matter-of-factly replied, "No."
Of the visits he has taken, Huggins said the ones to Auburn and North Carolina stood out as being the best, but for different reasons.
"At North Carolina, I really loved the weather," Huggins said. "And Auburn really surprised me. It was really nice."
Besides the aforementioned schools, one other program has been persistent in its pursuit of Huggins.
"Miami has been calling," Huggins said. "They're still coming at me hard. They want to come to the house. I told them, 'No.' I said that I'm not really interested [in that] and everything, but they're still pushing."
Besides fitting in with the football program, what is Huggins looking for in a college?
"The social life," he said.
The plan this week is to focus on football, not recruiting. To Huggins, the dead period admittedly came at just the right time, mainly because it allowed him to clear his head. In Lake Buena Vista, he's concentrating on trying to get better, not on picking a school.
He will worry about that later.
"When I get back home I'll start thinking about it more," Huggins said. "But ever since [winter break] I've just been relaxing."
