When Shane Montgomery was let go as Miami head football coach, OL John Avenski thought his chances…
Anevski Makes The Call
"I took my official visit to Miami this weekend and really had a great time while I was there," Anevski told Scout.com on Sunday night. "I'm now a RedHawk and excited about the future of the program under Coach Haywood."
The Elder High School (Cincinnati, Ohio) offensive lineman had narrowed down his college choices to Louisville and Miami with the RedHawks new staff being too much to turn down.
"My family and I connected with Coach Haywood and also Coach Vaas in a very short time. Coach Vaas is from Massachusetts and with my brother having played at Boston College my father and he were able to really connect about Boston and the east coast."
Another area the RedHawks new staff was able to bring to the table is a veteran group of coaches who've enjoyed success at the college and professional levels.
"Each of the coaches on the staff are committed to bring Miami back to the top of the MAC. They've been working hard since taking the job and are getting a lot of great feedback from the players their recruiting. Look for a lot of very good players to soon call Miami home."
While on his visit John had another Cincinnati native as his host.
"Andrew Phelan was my host on my visit and we really connected. He played at Lakota West so I knew who he was and we really got along and had a great time."
John was accompanied by his parents on his visit and they are also excited about his college choice.
"My parents are very happy with me going to Miami. It didn't really matter to them where I went but being close to home will make their trip to watch me play a lot easier than what it was with my brother."
At 6-foot-3, 280-pounds Anevski will be looked upon to play guard or center at Miami.
"I'll have to learn both guard spots and maybe even center at Miami. With the type of offense the staff will be running it will be good to have the ability to play multiple positions."
One thing is for certain Anevski is happy the recruiting process is now finally over with.
"It's a relief to know it's over now. I can get back to not thinking about it and just focus on my academics and work in the weight room without thinking too much about where I'll be going to college."
One thing is for certain, John Anevski knows his future is going to be solid on and off the field at Miami.
