Maryland football wide receiver Sean Savoy is no longer with the program, but is still taking classes, head coach Mike Locksley said Tuesday.
Savoy had been listed as the Terps’ starting slot wide receiver alongside Brian Cobbs but hasn’t played since Maryland lost to Michigan, 38-7, on Nov. 2.
The junior spent two years at Virginia Tech before transferring to Maryland. He was one of two players — along with quarterback Josh Jackson — to come to College Park from Blacksburg, Virginia.
After notching 57 receptions for 642 yards, to go along with 24 carries for 116 rushing yards and six total touchdowns as a Hokie, Savoy spent time as a defensive back in spring practice with the Terps before transitioning back to the offensive side of the ball in the fall.
After fellow wideout DJ Turner received a DUI in September, Locksley announced that the starting slot receiver would miss the remainder of the season, allowing Savoy to take over the starting role.
The D.C. native recorded six catches for 56 yards in his one season as a Terp.
With Savoy gone, Cobbs retains the starting slot position for Maryland’s final game of the season against Michigan State.
