Avery, (6-0, 200 lbs.), announced his pledge via social media.
While listed as a safety, Avery has the ability and frame to play linebacker at the next level.
Avery chose the Mountaineers over offers from California, Colorado State, and Southern Mississippi. He had been receiving increased interest from Arizona, Missouri and Texas Tech of late.
Prior to his visit to West Virginia he had an official visit scheduled to Missouri for next weekend, January 29th. It remains to be seen, though, if that will still take place.
BlueGoldNews.com will have more on his commitment following his official visit.
