There is a big move being made in the college football world. Virginia Tech star Sean Savoy has agreed to transfer from the program. The former three-star recruit is set to head to Maryland.
“I think I can make people miss in the open field, and I can get deep up the seam. They think that is the best place for me, putting me in the slot, and I feel that is the best part of my game, too, but being in that spot and making the safeties choose,” he formerly said.
From 247 Sports:
In the midst of that breakout freshman season, Savoy received news nobody should ever receive: his older brother, Omar, had been shot and killed. While he showed admirable and unthinkable strength to close out his first year, his play — along with Virginia Tech’s play as a team — fell off in 2018. Savoy only had 18 receptions for 188 yards and two touchdowns. He added virtually nothing on the ground, totaling five yards on eight carries.
Still, the acquisition of Savoy is a coup for the Terps. Not only does securing him as a member of Mike Locksley’s growing “winning football family” further that narrative for local recruits who leave the area for seemingly greener pastures but find they’d be better off at home, but it should greatly benefit the team on the field, too. His versatility in Locksley’s offense should have him on the field early and often, playing any number of positions.
Last season, Savoy recorded 39 catches for 454 yards and four touchdowns.
