"I can stretch the field and I have good hands, but they needed me more as a blocker this year and I did pretty well with that," Avery noted. "I'll do whatever a team needs me to do. I can play H-Back, Tight End or I can split out wide and be a threat out there as a receiver."
The other schools recruiting Avery before his commitment to Western Michigan were Bowling Green, Idaho and Indiana along with Washington State who was recruiting him hard until then head coach Paul Wulff was fired.
"Jacob should have more offers," Harbor head coach Brett Peabody told JCFootball.com back in November. "I think our inconsistency hurt him a little bit. He's big and he's fast and he's got great hands."
Avery is eligible to sign with a school immediately and he will finish up his two-year degree in May and will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
