Tolen Avery
Galveston, Texas
Ball High School
Defensive End
6’3″ 235 lbs
Class of 2014

Update: Avery has given the Flames a verbal commit.

Avery, who goes by TJ, is being looked at by colleges as a tight end/defensive end. He was on campus this past weekend for his official visit. According to his hudl profile, he runs a 4.6 40-yard dash, not bad for someone his size. He has reported offers from Liberty, Texas Southern, and Nevada with interest shown by Arkansas State, Texas State, Texas Tech, Tulsa, and Utah. Rivals has Avery rated as a 2 star prospect. I could not find any stats for his 2013 season, but his NCSA profile credits him with 98 tackles, 8 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles in 2012.
