The distinct possibility of a career in baseball has Xavier Avery weighing all of his options.
Report: Cedar Grove's Avery Solid to UGA
"I like Oklahoma's program," Avery told the newspaper. "I like a lot of programs. There's nothing wrong with Oklahoma. I just like Georgia better.
Avery's commitment to the Bulldogs in late 2007 didn't come as much of a surprise. After taking a visit to Stanford and fielding offers from a handful of programs such as Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Maryland and Connecticut, the talented three-star prospect picked UGA.
And while Georgia fans have no reason now to believe that Avery will not sign with the Bulldogs come National Signing Day next week, the Major League Baseball Draft still looms in the not-too-distant future. And Avery, a two-sport star that should he attend UGA will play both football and baseball, may decide to pursue baseball full time.
"Everybody would like the big dollars. You can't fault me for wanting that," Avery said in the same article. "But everybody isn't going in the first round. I'd be throwing away so much to go play [professional baseball]. I'd like something in return. It's only fair."
