Four-star LB decision pending

It is down to three schools for the services of four-star linebacker E.J. Savannah (6-2, 215, 4.5) from Bellevue, Wash. Savannah is one of the best linebackers on the west coast. One of these three teams could be very happy as early as this evening.
"It is down to Oregon, Washington and ASU for E.J.," Bellevue coach Butch Goncharoff said. "New Washington head coach Ty Willingham has done a great job getting the Huskies back in the race."
One of his specialties from his linebacker spot is putting heat on the quarterback. Though he missed the last five games of the season due to a shoulder injury, Savannah still led his conference in sacks.
"E.J. has great instincts," Goncharoff said. "When he hits you, he hit right through you."
Savannah helped get his team off to a great start this season with a dominating victory over Concord (Calif.) De La Salle that ended that program's 151 game winning streak.
Bellevue went on to a 13-0 record and a State Championship.
