Those who have been following recruiting for a couple years may remember Tom Savage from the class of 2009, who Michigan would have shown interest in - and maybe have had a good shot at landing - if they'd still been running a pro-style offense. He was a 4-star prospect from the Philadelphia area.
Well, Savage ended up signing with Rutgers, but after a couple seasons in Piscataway, he's looking to transfer to another D-1 school. From the Miami Herald:
Besides also recruiting Orlando-area quarterback/Wake Forest oral commitment Kevin Sousa, UM [YTM] called the high school coach of Tom Savage to express interest in the 2008 high school All-American quarterback who is transferring from Rutgers, according to his father. "Tom likes Miami. They have a great coaching staff," Savage Sr. said. But his son cannot speak with schools until Rutgers grants written permission. Rutgers has so far denied Savage permission to speak with UM, but that is being appealed. UF, FSU and Michigan were among others who called Savage’s coach.
Should Savage choose to transfer to Michigan, he'd have to sit out a year, then have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
