"My coach told me Michigan was going to call in a couple hours," Laterryal Savoy said. "He asked me if I was ready to decide which school I wanted and I told him Michigan was it. So when Coach Jackson called I told him I was committing."
The 6 foot 2, 195 pound Savoy, from Mamou, La. High School, is Michigan's fifth commitment already this recruiting season. At the recent LSU Nike Camp he ran a 4.60 40 and clocked a 4.18 in the shuttle. He said Michigan was recruiting him as a wide receiver and that's where he wants to play in college. "I really like the way Michigan treated me through the whole recruiting process," Savoy said. "Coach Jackson was always real nice in his letters, he always made me feel like I would be right at home at Michigan."
Savoy has never been to Michigan but did mention a good friend of his gradutated from U-M. "He said he really liked it there, that it was a great school and a great campus. But he said it gets cold there, does it get pretty cold?" he asked, laughing. "I've never seen a game there when it was snowing so it's no big deal." He said he is going to try and make it up to the Michigan camp and is looking forward to making his official visit to the U-M campus. Will he visit other schools? "I may take a visit to Florida State and Auburn," he said. "But I'm solid with my commitment. I said I was committed and that's that." He also said that at first his mother was shocked he chose Michigan, but that now the family is considering moving to Ann Arbor. "My folks are talking about it," Savoy said.
Other schools on his final list included LSU, Auburn, and Florida State. He said that Auburn has offered and that Tennessee was supposed to have offered, but he hadn't heard whether they had yet.
Savoy reports a 2.5 grade-point-average and said he scored a 14 on the ACT. "That was my first time and I'm definitely taking it again," he said.
