Maryland has made some nice additions to its roster through transfer this offseason.
Don Markus of the Baltimore Sun reported that the Terrapins landed former Virginia Tech wide receiver Sean Savoy. He joins former Ohio State and four-star linebacker KeAndre Jones, who also committed to Maryland through transfer.
Both players are enrolled in classes in College Park for the spring semester.

Savoy was a three-star wide receiver out of Washington, D.C. and chose Virginia Tech over Maryland and other schools during the 2017 recruiting class.
As a freshman, Savoy totaled 454 yards and four touchdowns on 39 receptions. He also had 116 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. He had a more limited role in 2018, catching 18 passes for 188 yards and a pair of scores.
It’s unclear whether Savoy will appeal the NCAA for immediate eligibility, though he’ll likely have to sit out the 2019 season due to transfer rules.
Landing players like Savoy and Jones through transfer is huge for head coach Mike Locksely, who is enduring some growing pains on the recruiting trail.
