McAvoy Talks Latest Offers
The recent weeks have been kind to Bloomington High's Kyle McAvoy. The 6'6, 282-lb lineman has earned offers from Michigan State, Louisville and Western Michigan. While many recruits have been out this spring fitting in visits, junior days and college practices, Kyle has had a few family commitments, so the travel will begin now. "We're just taking it as it comes. It's a busy time because [older brother] Tim is graduating and we have a cousin getting married, so we're fitting it in where we can. We went to Illinois over the weekend for junior day. We're trying to get to Michigan State and Western Michigan in the next couple weeks." Kyle's older brother Tim he spoke of, played at Michigan the last four years and he has a twin brother, Luke McAvoy, who is also being recruited in the 2011 class. Luke and Kyle were both on the trip to Champaign last weekend. "We didn't stay very long. Coach Zook and some of the coaches did talk to us, but we had to leave early because of a prior commitment." The offer from Michigan State is one McAvoy says he has to research a little more, but what he does know of the school, he likes. "I don't know a whole lot about the program, but I know thye're a pretty good school and I know it's a good offer. My recruiter is Coach Roushar. I haven't had a chance to talk to him on the phone, but he e-mailed me and I'll probably call him in the next couple days." As for the Louisville offer, McAvoy said, "I don't know a whole lot about them. Coach Borbely been talking to us and seems very interested. They want us to go and visit there. I don't know a whole lot about the program, but that's another school I want to go visit see what they have to offer." One school he is more familar with is Michigan, where his brother played. McAvoy has not been offered by the Wolverines yet, but he did attend a junior day there. "We went to the Night of Champioins there. I thought it was, from comparison to the rest of the junior days, the most entertaining. Even though we know a lot about the program and seen the facilities, it was different. They said they have been looking at the film and like the film, but they want to see us in camp and see how we move." So far, the only FBS offer Kyle and Luke share is Western Michigan (they also hold one from FCS/1-AA Illinois State). The two would like to play together at the next level, but it is not necessarily something that will seal their final decision. "I wouldn't call it a deal breaker," Kyle explained. "We'd like to go to the same school. It would make the transition easier, but we both want different things. He wants to go into law and political science and I want to go into business, so whatever school has the better academics and is better suited for what we want to do, is where we want to go."
