Washington is set to lose a former 5-star prospect to the transfer portal this offseason.

Sav’ell Smalls announced his decision to enter the portal on Monday evening. Smalls was a member of Washington’s 2020 recruiting class.

He wrote a lengthy note announcing his decision:

“I appreciate the University of Washington for everything,” he wrote. “With that being said, I’ll be entering the transfer portal with 2 years of eligibility remaining. The dream is still the dream. Wherever I land you gon’ get everything out of me. Believe that.”

Smalls was the No. 30 overall player and the No. 3 strong side defensive end in the class of 2020, per 247Sports Composite rankings. He was also the No. 1 player from the state of Washington.

Despite the high pedigree, Smalls never blossomed into a superstar for the Huskies. Last season, his 3rd with the program, he made 14 total tackles and 1 tackle for loss — both career-highs. He has recorded 32 tackles in his career.

Smalls will have 2 years of eligibility at his next destination.
