Savon Huggins Pulls Jerk Move on North Carolina When Committing to Rutgers

I don’t spend much time following high school recruiting news, so you know something had to happen for me to write a story on it. This is about Savon Huggins, who apparently is a pretty highly ranked running back recruit. I don’t know who this guy is, but I do know that his college and NFL stats are identical to mine: 0 yards. Until he’s actually proven something at a level that matters, he shouldn’t pull crap like this, and he really shouldn’t be doing it at all.

Frumpzilla shares with us how Huggins teased North Carolina when he announced he’d be signing with Rutgers for college. Check out the 1:20 mark of this video:

Yeah, I know recruiting news has become a big deal in this country because there are so many diehard college football fans. I know hundreds of coaches are sending letters to these kids and smooching the butts of these 17 year olds, telling them how special they are. But let’s get real, they need to learn some lessons about respect. Huggins is just a high school kid. He should never pull disrespectful moves like that, screwing with another school. Who does he think he is?

As far as I’m concerned, he’s put himself in the same class as Jimmy Clausen and Kobe Bryant for high school announcement jerk moves. Kobe showed up to his indoor press conference with sunglasses on. Jimmy Clausen rolled up to his in a stretch limo. Those are no-nos right there, and this guy Huggins has now placed himself in the same category. Listen kid, you’re no big deal. You have no place to be pulling garbage like that.

    Huggins had already informed North Carolina of his decision. It wasn’t the classiest move, but he was just having fun. If you did ANY research, you’d learn that he is an excellent student who is widely respected by his teammates, coaches, and the NJ football community.

    I’m glad to hear he’s a good student, but he’s clearly way too full of himself to pull a stunt like that. Not my type of player.

    Dont know who you are to pass judgement on kids you have no clue as you said about High school Recruiting so keep doing what you do and stop passing judgement on 17 yr old kids,” like i said kids.” The kids is an excellent student and aand i well liked and respected by every one so unless you have spent time with this kid and and can clearly say i saw how this kid acts and he has no class please dont pass Judgement……..

    It is not passing judgement by saying a low rent move is a low rent move. I don’t care if he donates plasma on the weekends and tutors illiterate nuns over Easter break. It was a low class move. Maybe he has done a bunch of good things, but this one thing showed no class.
