Savaiinaea decommits, A&M, UCLA lead
By Sam Khan Jr.
There are two schools atop the list of ESPN 150 inside linebacker Isaac Savaiinaea (Honolulu Punahou School) and neither one of them is Stanford.
Savaiinaea, the No. 140 player in the ESPN 150, decommitted from Stanford on Thursday night. The 6-foot-3, 231 pound prospect confirmed to RecruitingNation via text message that he rescinded the commitment and that Texas A&M and UCLA are his top two choices.
The nation's fourth-ranked inside linebacker originally committed to Stanford in March, but came into the fall with the intention of visiting other schools. He took official visits to Texas A&M when the Aggies played Arkansas, to Notre Dame when the Irish hosted Stanford, to Stanford when the Cardinal hosted Washington State and to UCLA when the Bruins took on Arizona.
Savaiinaea indicated that he does not have any more visits planned and that he's likely to make his decision on where to go on national signing day in February.
