Avery is an intriguing athletic specimen who excels in two sports. At Cedar Grove High, Avery is a running back for the football team in the fall and an outfielder in the spring. He has outstanding speed (he runs a 60 yard dash in 6.17 seconds). His swing has plenty of holes but he has raw power.
Avery is raw even for a prep talent. He’s committed to Georgia as a running-back, where the Bulldogs expect him to be an All-American candidate. He will be hard to sign because of his dual commitment and his strong academics, but Avery has the raw tools to be an impressive big leaguer.
Late first-round/supplemental round.
