The hits keep on coming for Virginia Tech football. Sophomore wide receiver Sean Savoy took to Twitter to announce his transfer, following redshirt freshman Rico Kearney, who did the same thing on Sunday.

Savoy caught 39 passes for 454 yards and four touchdowns as a true freshman in 2017. However, he lost the starting job at slot receiver to Hezekiah Grimsley this past spring, and hasn’t been as involved in the offense, or as effective. He has 18 receptions for just 188 yards in nine games this season.
However, Savoy has started three games this season, and he started as recently as the Boston College game. For the second day in a row, a player in the two-deep has decided to transfer without finishing the season.
