Avery one to watch

2015 quarterback Trevon Avery has a connection to current Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez. Read on to see what it is, his thoughts on recruiting, and more.

With 2014 quarterback recruiting out of the way, it's time to look to the 2015 class and one of the names that all UA fans should be aware of is Grand Blanc (Mich.) quarterback Trevon Avery.

A standout cornerback as a sophomore, Avery is likely to get the majority of his offers on the defensive side of the ball.

However, there are a few schools, such as Arizona, that believe he will be a successful quarterback on the next level.

"I've worked hard the past year on my passing and I'm starting to get into a groove," Avery said. "It's just a different thought process playing quarterback and working on hitting guys in stride is all on me, as is being a leader."

Arizona would seem to have a natural in with Avery, as his brother Courtney is currently a safety on Michigan that was recruited by Rich Rodriguez.

Currently, Avery has not paid a lot of attention to college recruiters.

"I've gotten some interest from some really good schools, but a lot of it is just mail right now," Avery said. "This past season has been huge because of my switch of positions and everything like that. Once everything is over I will probably sit down with my family and see where everything is."

In the meantime, Avery is continuing to improve.

"I'm pretty thin and now that it looks like I could be playing quarterback it's important that I continue to get bigger, because I'm going to take a beating and I have to be able to deal with that."
