L.A. Harbor TE still looking for a home

Even though he didn't put up big numbers catching the ball, make no mistake, L.A. Harbor TE Jacob Avery (6-5, 240) is one of the top JUCO prospects still available on the market. The talented tight end though he had found himself a home, but when plans fell through he was "homeless" and now he's looking for a school and coaching staff who needs him and can use his multitude of talents...

"I had committed to Western Michigan, but things sorta fell through with them," a disappointed Avery told JCFootball.com. "I thought I had found the right place for me, but it didn't work out, they dropped me and now I'm available again."

As a sophomore this past season, Avery put up modest numbers catching the ball -- just 12 receptions for 121 yards -- but he was one of the key cogs in a running game that racked up over 190 yards per game on the ground.

"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.
