BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference and All-Academic honors since his sophomore campaign. Led the team as a senior posting 87/1,007/8 after 38/447/3 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Big, soft-handed wideout with possibilities as a possession receiver. Displays good ball awareness and is a consistent hand-catcher who extends to grab the ball away from his frame. Consistently comes back to the ball and shields opponents away with his frame. Displays outstanding adjustment and body control grabbing the errant throw. Has both soft and strong hands. Effectively uses the sidelines and displays a sense of timing. Aggressive, works to pick up yardage after the catch and attacks blocking assignments.

NEGATIVES: Lacks deep speed, cannot run to the long throw nor beat defenders down the field. Lacks quickness and sharpness running routes.

ANALYSIS: Consistent the past three seasons, Avant is a clutch receiver with a passion for the game. Known as a player with a good work ethic, he is a good football player with potential as a second receiver in the NFL.
