"My top five is Florida State, Miami, LSU, Florida and Georgia. I have offers from all of those schools," Avery Atkins said.
What stands out about each of his leaders?
FSU: "I really like Coach Bowden and his style of coaching. They have great tradition also."
Miami: "I like everything about Miami. They have a nice campus, winning tradition and good coaches."
LSU: "I went there about a month ago and hung out with the players. They really made me feel welcome and like I was part of their family."
Florida: "A lot of people don't like Coach Zook, but I really look up to him. He's a real down to earth man."
Georgia: "I haven't visited there yet, but I talked to the coaches and it seems like they have a lot to offer. I want to take a visit there and see for myself."
What is Avery looking for most of all in a school?
"I want to feel a brotherhood amongst the players and I want to see how long it will take me to get on the field. I also want a team that puts God first. That's why I really like Coach Rucker from Georgia and Coach Bowden from FSU."
Where will the Sunshine State native be camping this summer?
"On the 23rd I'm going to LSU and on the 10th I'm going to Florida. I'll also be at Florida State and I'm trying to go to Georgia as well. Miami has already had their camp, so I won't go down there."
Atkins would like to make a decision before the first of next year.
"I want to do a lot of my unofficial visits this summer so I can commit during the season. I just want to see which coaches are going to tell me what I want to hear, and which ones are going to be real with me."
Avery will immediately add quality depth to the secondary of whichever team he decides to play for. TheInsiders will continue to keep you up to date with every change in his recruitment up until signing day 2005.
