"I'm going to make it (his decision on sport and school) my senior year," he said.
If he chooses the football route, he has plenty of schools to choose from. One is Georgia, where he visited Saturday for G-Day. His visit included talks with head coach Mark Richt, recruiting coordinator Rodney Gardner and running backs coach Tony Ball.
"We just talked about Georgia and the spring game and how it's been going," he said.
Georgia makes his list of top schools because "it's Georgia," and because the school is close to home.
Avery's been hearing from lots of schools across the southeast and already has eight offers including one from the Bulldogs.
