Osman Savage, Ex-Wolverine

Osman Savage

Thanks to Moser, Stephen, and Ashley for the recent Paypal donations!

Freshman linebacker Osman Savage has entered the transfer portal, presumably ending his Michigan career before it ever got started. A product of Baltimore (MD) St. Frances, he was a 247 Composite 4-star, the #18 outside linebacker, and #300 overall.

Savage was one of three signees from St. Frances, joining running back Blake Corum and fellow linebacker Nikhai Hill-Green. Both of his high school teammates have been generating some buzz here in the early going, but I had not heard much about Savage, for whatever reason. He did enter college heavier than I expected – reportedly in the 240+ range – so I’m not sure if that has factored into his place on the depth chart or other experiences so far.

Savage is the second 2020 signee to depart from Michigan already, joining Aaron Lewis, who landed at Rutgers.

2020 Season Countdown: #86 Osman Savage

Name: Osman Savage
225 lbs.
High school:
Baltimore (MD) St. Frances
Jersey number:
Last year:
Savage was a senior in high school (LINK).
TTB Rating:

“Savage” is a great name for a football player, and Osman seemed to grow into that name more as a senior. While his physicality did not stand out to me as a junior, I believe he improved in that area during his final year of high school. St. Frances doesn’t seem to be too keen on “stats” and that kind of thing, so his numbers are a mystery.

Being a backup inside linebacker at Michigan is an exercise in anonymity, so I don’t expect much from him this year. Cam McGrone and Josh Ross seem to have the two inside ‘backer positions locked down, and with Jordan Glasgow and Devin Gil gone to the Indianapolis Colts and the UCF, respectively, there is traditionally only one guy who is going to get significant snaps in a backup role. Murmurings out of Ann Arbor indicate that guy will be redshirt freshman Charles Thomas, so I expect to see Savage redshirt or just play a bit role in 2020.

Hit the jump for some senior highlights.
