Hasty, Savannah officially back in fold

UW coach Tyrone Willingham officially confirmed the return of E.J. Savannah and J.R. Hasty before practice today, saying “they started living up to the responsibilities of a football team. That’s always what gets you back.”
The two each participated in practice Monday for the first time this spring, and are now back as full functioning members of the team after having been essentially suspended for the first seven practices for failing to live up to certain, unspecified team responsibilities.
Willingham was vague on where the two begin on the depth chart, but it’s almost certain Hasty is at the bottom of the running back depth chart while Savannah is likely a backup, at worst, at one outside linebacker spot.
Asked how the two looked Monday, Willingham said “you can see the conditioning and some things aren’t there, but those things will come.”
UW defensive coordinator Ed Donatell said he didn’t think Savannah was behind at all pointing out he was an active participant in meetings and film sessions.
“We’ve been talking with him,” Donatell said. “It’s not like he’s been out. He’s still been part of us and been around the office and we’ve had a lot of contact with him. He just knew he had some things he wanted to take care of before we got to football stuff and now we are moving forward with that and he is right on course.”
