Savoy Pledge Solid after Camp-Week Visit

When wide receiver <b>Laterryal Savoy</b> from Mamou, La. high school committed to Michigan back in May without having ever set foot on the Ann Arbor campus, speculation abounded as to whether or not the talented wideout would stick with his pledge, especially if the home-state school offered. After camping all week at Michigan, all doubts may be put to rest.

"I absolutely loved it, I loved everything about it," Laterryal Savoy said. "I even liked the weather, it was nice that is was cool, it's always hot here, there was even a nice breeze."

The big question Wolverine fans want answered, now that the 6 foot 2, 195-pound Savoy has been on campus, is there any doubt about his committment? "None," he said. "I was a little bit concerned about the academics, Michigan is a good school, but they sat us down and went over all the academice support they have there so I'm not worried about it anymore."

LSU has always been perceived as the biggest challenge to Savoy actually ending up in Ann Arbor. "LSU still hasn't offered, they just tell me to keep in touch," he said. "But I'm not even thinking that way. All my coaches went up and even they had a good time. There isn't anything that's going to change my mind now."

Although Savoy spent most of the week in Ann Arbor while camp was going on, he didn't participate. "I didn't do much of anything during the camp itself," he said. "They just wanted me to come up and check out the campus and the town to see if I would like it. We spent most of the time in town (Ann Arbor) and it was great."

Savoy's coach told GBW earlier that he felt his star ball-catcher could play either side of the ball, but it seems U-M has him slotted for the offense. "All they talked to me about was playing wide receiver," Savoy said. "That's where I want to play.

Savoy said he has no plans to attend any other camps. "I've been to the one that matters, I don't need to go anywhere else," he said. He said he will participate in passing league tournaments with his team during the summer, and get ready for fall camp, which opens for Mamou in August.
