Peay gains WG verbal

Senior wing Jared Savage has verbally committed to Austin Peay.  Savage earned his offer from a sparkling Austin Peay Elite Camp performance.  Head Coach Dave Loos and the entire coaching staff followed him hard all season.

The lithe wing plays for Warren Central High (KY).  Despite his long arms, Savage has very compact shot mechanics.  He can finish with the left a little bit.  Developing upper body strength was a focus for Savage in the last year.  His ball-handling has improved dramatically too.

When he arrives in the Ohio Valley Conference Savage will need to continue adding muscle.  The beautiful shooting form hints at high volume scoring at the next level.

The Legacy

Savage’s goal should be to eclipse his father, though that will be difficult.

Jermaine Savage was apart of some of the most successful Austin Peay teams ever.  He played alongside Bubba Wells and won the 1996 OVC Tournament Championship.   graduated from Austin Peay in 1996 and was inducted in the school’s Hall of Fame in 2006.

The elder Savage recorded 1,345 career points and tucked away 525 rebounds.  His son, Jared Savage expects to sign during the late signing period.
