Huskies spokesman Jeff Bechthold confirmed Wednesday that the standout linebacker will rejoin the UW football program in January. Savannah had academic and team issues under former coach Tyrone Willingham and was released from his scholarship back in September, but never enrolled at another school.
New coach Steve Sarkisian said during his introductory news conference this week that everyone has a clean slate. Savannah was Washington's top tackler and defensive MVP during the 2007 season.
The school also says that running back Brandon Johnson, who was suspended for the season finale at California, is back in good standing with the team.
