UW gives linebacker E.J. Savannah right to transfer
Washington said it has granted junior linebacker E.J. Savannah his request to contact other college regarding a transfer.
Washington has granted junior linebacker E.J. Savannah his request to contact other institutions regarding a transfer, coach Tyrone Willingham announced Tuesday.
Savannah, Washington's leading tackler last season, redshirted as a freshman season in 2005 and will enter his fourth season of college eligibility this fall.
The release said Washington will support the former Bellevue High School star's desire to transfer to another institution, as long as it is outside of the Pac-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 in the release. "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."
