Friday a.m. notes

I wrote about E.J. Savannah and the linebacker position for today’s paper.
There was a little more I wanted to get in the story but couldn’t due to space reasons.
Among the other things Savannah told me that didn’t make it in the story are that he’s put on about five pounds from last year — from 223 to about 227-228 — and has kept it on throughout camp.
“I notice it when I hit linemen,” he said. “It’s really helping me hold my ground.”
He also said his neck-stinger issues, which held him out in 2005, haven’t been a problem at all. He’s improved so much that he said he may be able to ditch the bulky neck roll he wore last season for a smaller one.
“I’ll have a lot more mobility with my head moving around, looking to where the ball is,” he said.
One of the interesting things in talking with Chris Tormey is that they really seem to be finding a backup to Dan Howell at strongside linebacker, having moved both Kyle Trew and walk-on Fred Wiggs to that spot in recent days. Redshirt freshman Matt Houston is the other scholarship player there.
Trew had been backing up at the WLB spot but was moved this week, maybe because they now know for sure that Savannah will be good to go.
The story also includes some info on Trenton Tuiasosopo, who is apparently having a good camp, and needed to have one with true freshman Mason Foster bursting on the scene at MLB, as well.
Also today is our story on Arizona State as part of our continuing Pac-10 preview.
ALUMNI REPORT
Reggie Williams caught just two passes for nine yards against Green Bay last night and took this crushing hit from Desmond Bishop after one of them. Bishop is a rookie from Cal and the same guy who had the interception in overtime against UW last year.
Damon Huard didn’t play for the Chiefs last night but his chances at getting the team’s starting QB job were helped by the poor performance of Brodie Croyle.
Dashon Goldson is definitely out this week with an elbow injury.
