One of the top prospects at the Scout.com combine in Waco was tight end Frank Avery from Ball High in Galveston, Texas. He had a number of offers to choose from, but ultimately chose to stay close to home.

One of the top prospects at the Scout.com combine in Waco was tight end Frank Avery from Ball High in Galveston, Texas. He had a number of offers to choose from, but ultimately chose to stay close to home.

"I committed to Texas A&M," Avery said. "I think it was mainly because it felt like home. All of my friends and family felt like it was the right place for me too."

The 6-foot-5, 203-pound Avery ran the 40-yard dash in 4.75 seconds, the shuttle in 4.72 seconds and posted a 25-inch vertical jump.

"At this point I don't know if I would visit any other schools," Avery said. "I guess we'll just have to say, but right now I am a firm commitment and don't have anyone else in mind that I would want to visit."

During his junior campaign Avery was a second team all-district selection.

"Texas A&M was always at the top," Avery said. "There were other schools I considered, but A&M was always in my heart. I called the coaches and told them I was committing and they were real happy."
