A Busy Weekend for Commit Laterryal Savoy

Michigan wide receiver commitment Laterryal Savoy played Thursday night in the All-American Bowl Classic in Shreveport, La., where the West team prevailed 44-21 over Savoy's East squad. Immediately after the game the four-star receiver was off to Ann Arbor for his official visit. GoBlueWolverine spoke Tuesday with Savoy about the game, and the trip.

When four-star wide receiver Laterryal Savoy committed to Michigan last spring, many wondered if he would stay a Wolverine pledge. Now that Signing Day is less than two weeks way, it seems that the worry was for naught. Savoy returned from his official visit this weekend even more convinced he made the right decision. "It was great," he said. "I went up with my father and brother-in-law. My host was Johnny Thompson and we got along great. I also met Leon Hall and Jamar Adams. It was nice to see the town and more of the campus, as soon as school is done I'm going back up there." He also said he met with fellow Michigan commitment Tim McAvoy, the offensive lineman from Bloomington, Ill.

Savoy said he was able to talk to Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr, as well as assistants Erik Campbell and Fred Jackson. Jackson is Savoy's recruiter.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Savoy played in the All-American Bowl Classic Thursday night, where his East team fell to the West 44-21. "I had one touchdown catch of 37-yards," he said. "It was a fun game, it was great for some of the guys that haven't really been noticed to get a chance to show what they can do." Savoy said he went right from the game to the airport, and arrived in Ann Arbor around noon on Friday. The speedy receiver was treated to his first hockey game ever as the Wolverine icers beat the University of Alaska-Fairbanks 5-2. "That was an experience," Savoy said. "I've never been to a hockey game before, that was crazy, the crowd was loud and rowdy, it was a really fun time." He said the weather, while cold, was no big deal. "It gets cold down here too," he said. "But that wasn't something I am concerned about, I knew it was cold in the winter when I committed."

Savoy said he is still being contacted my Mississippi State, but said there is nothing that will convince him to change his mind. He said the new LSU staff hasn't been in contact with him.

He said he would run track in the spring.
