Avery's signed, so now what?

Xavier Avery caused some to doubt his commitment to UGA after visiting Oklahoma with his teammate and Sooner signee Joshua Jarboe a couple of weeks ago, but he did sign with the Dawgs on Wednesday.

"It feels real good that I signed with UGA," said Avery. "That is where I always wanted to go. I cannot wait to spend the next four years in Athens."

Avery could be the best overall athlete in the Bulldog class as he stars in football, baseball and track in high school. He is excited about being part of a class full of talent and he has high expectations for this group.
