East No. 6 WR Sean Savoy breaks down Virginia Tech commitment

Washington (D.C.) Wilson receiver Sean Savoy details his Virginia Tech commitment.

Sean Savoy can line up in the slot, wide, or even in the backfield, and Virginia Tech told him all three spots would be in play for him.

However, that is not why the No. 1 receiver in the District of Columbia committed to the Hokies on Saturday.

"It always felt like home," Savoy said. "Whenever I went on different trips, some of the places were good, but Tech always seemed like the right fit for me.

"It seems like everybody is happy to see me when I go there and they greet me. Everyone seems to know who I am. Even people just on campus know who I am. It's big."

The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Savoy, who plays at Wilson High, made his decision at the end of a visit to campus.

"It was very close with Penn State, but Tech was put over the top because it seemed like everything is nice," Savoy said. I go down there and everything is organized and nice, and everything is in place."

Savoy likes the way new coach Justin Fuente will run the offense, and distribute the ball to the receivers. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.62 seconds at The Opening Regional in mid April.

"It's very up-tempo, and it's similiar to what I'm doing right now," Savoy said. "I feel like I will fit right in. ...They (talked) about playing all three spots, but mainly in the slot. 

"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."
