Oregon snags commitment from standout former Kansas State safety
Oregon added a huge commitment from former Kansas State safety Kobe Savage on Wednesday.
Savage finished 3rd on the team with 57 total tackles. He recorded 115 total tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, and 6 interceptions in the last 2 seasons with the Wildcats. Savage entered the portal on Dec. 11.
The 5-foot-11, 207-pound Savage will play his 6th year in college football with one year of eligibility remaining.
The safety didn’t start his career with Kansas State. He began his career at Texas A&M Commerce. Savage then spent 2020-2021 at Tyler Junior College before coming to Manhattan last year.

Savage had his name tied to some awards this year. He was on the watch list for the Chuck Bednarik, Bronko Nagurski, and Jim Thorpe Awards. Last year, he was an All-Big 12 second team selection.
Savage is one of the best available defensive backs in the transfer portal. He’s earned all-Big 12 honors in each of the past two seasons at Kansas State.
Savage is the 5th transfer addition for the Ducks this offseason after quarterbacks Dillon Gabriel and Dante Moore, running back Jay Harris and offensive lineman Matthew Bedford.
