Avery watches G-Day

Cedar Grove running back Xavier Avery has some decisions to make, but he isn't ready to make them yet.

The football and baseball star first has to pick a sport and decide if he wants to play college football or pro baseball.

"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.

Among his top choices are Georgia, Georgia Tech, LSU, Tennessee, Auburn. He likes all the SEC schools, he said, and he hasn't narrowed that list yet.
