A Virginia Tech football wide receiver has reportedly made his transfer decision.

Hokies' wideout Sean Savoy is reportedly heading back closer to home, as he's transferring to Maryland.

The wide receiver is a Washington, D.C. native, playing his high school football at Woodrow Wilson.

247Sports broke the news of Savoy's transfer decision:

Former Virginia Tech wide receiver Sean Savoy has transferred to the University of Maryland and enrolled in classes, multiple sources have confirmed to Inside Maryland Sports.

Savoy was a three-star recruit coming out of Wilson High School in Washington, D.C. before committing to Virginia Tech. He originally committed to Virginia Tech over Maryland, among other schools, and though the Terps staff tried to flip him late in the 2017 recruiting cycle, he opted to stick with the Hokies.

Savoy was a three-star prospect coming out of high school, ranked the No. 92 WR in the class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

The wide receiver will likely have to sit out the 2019 season, barring a waiver from the NCAA. It's possible he could get a hardship waiver from the NCAA, as his older brother was tragically shot and killed during the middle of the 2018 season.

Stay tuned for an official announcement.
