2008 Kentucky Wildcat football recruiting update from Kentucky Sports Report.
SEC schools heat up on Avery
"After my visit there, I was really leaning toward signing with them, but then schools like Kentucky and Arkansas and San Jose State and Colorado State started calling and I started to think about things a little differently."
Arkansas is a school that intrigues Avery a lot.
"My dad actually lives out there and he knew the old receivers coach out there," Avery said. "When coach (Bobby) Petrino got there, they asked for my film and got it from my dad and they told him they really liked it a lot and they were going to call my coach and see what was up.
"Playing in the SEC would be great, so I want to give it a chance to develop here over the next couple weeks."
Avery has a tentative visit set for Colorado State on January 25th and he thinks he might be visiting San Jose State this weekend.
"I need to get in touch with the coaches up there because I haven't gotten my tickets yet, but the plan is for me to visit there this weekend," Avery said. "CSU wants me to visit next weekend and we've pretty much set that one up.
"Coach (Sonny) Lubick is a great coach and really friendly. They came up to visit me earlier this month and I really like them a lot so they are in the picture as well."
Avery finished the season with 60 receptions for 766 yards and seven touchdowns and was named to the all-conference team.
He can leave at any time -- he's already received his AA degree -- and he'll have three years to play two when he arrives on campus.
