With Miami needing to add a few more interior D-linemen to the 2018 Class, flipping Calvin Avery from Illinois would be a good pick up. An worth Miami kicking the tears to see if he fits what Coach Kool wants, I means its worth bring the young man in for a OV or at least flying out to Dallas for a face to face. He clearly has intentions on leaving the state Texas to play college ball, with ultimately goal of making it to the NFL. An Miami has the best DLine Coach in America that that has sent more more 1st or 2nd rounders to the NFL over the last decade then any other college coach.

Calvin Avery is referred to as "Baby Warren Sapp" an I would have to agree with that analogy, so then it would only be fitting for this young man to come play for the U. At 6'1" 310lbs this young man as an supernatural first step for someone his size and yet also has the strength to hold up at the point of attack against double teams in the running game.

The article below is an excellent breakdown of 2018 DT Calvin Avery's skill sets and how they would translate to Miami.

Bishop Dunne's Calvin Avery Is A Monster
By Kolby Paxton Sept 7, 2017

One look at Bishop Dunne defensive tackle Calvin Avery wearing No. 99 while bulldozing his way into the offensive backfield instantly channels the memory of another No. 99 who looked similarly dominant on film -- albeit against a bit different level of competition.

Of course, we're talking about former Tampa Bay Buccaneers great Warren Sapp.

"Calvin is a baby Warren Sapp," Bishop Dunne head coach Michael Johnson said. "He's a phenomenal football player. He's the complete package: power, strength, athleticism, toughness, physicality. You can't single block this guy."

For those who try, Johnson has only well wishes.

"Good luck," he says.

Avery is an Under Armour All-American and a four-star prospect committed to Illinois. But Love Smith and the Illini better hold on tight. The 6-foot-2, 310-pounder also counts the likes of Oklahoma, USC, Florida State, Texas, and Notre Dame among his list of suitors.

A scouting report on Avery heading into Bishop Dunne's next game against Brentwood Academy (TN) in the Battle on the Border on Saturday in Shreveport, LA, could be summed up in three words: He crushes people.

But, just for fun, let's allow his tape to do the talking, shall we?

Watch the 2017 Battle on the Border LIVE on FloFootball!



Step 1: Destroy the guard. Step 2: Engulf the running back. Check and check. It's safe to say the opposing offense can scrap this play for the remainder of this one.



There aren't many 310-pound three-techniques meeting the quarterback at the end of their three-step drop. There aren't many "baby Warren Sapps" out there, either.



Avery isn't all size and strength. His athleticism is on full display in this one, as he hits the guard with the okie doke followed by a sweet swim move.



How many backside defensive tackles do you know who blow up off-tackle sweeps?



That awkward moment when a defensive tackle blows up your wide receiver slip screen.



Even a double team isn't necessarily a recipe for success.

Want to see more? Avery and the Falcons take on Brentwood Academy (TN) in the Battle on the Border on Saturday at 3 PM (CT), and we'll have it for you live at FloFootball.com.

This kid has been a hot mess. He was at Dr. Phillips, then IMG, then back to Dr. Phillips, then to TFA (The First Academy) then to some private school in DC,then to Auburn, then to another prep school........ Kid is a nice athlete and actually played high level AAU basketball here in Orlando for CP25 which was previously Southeast Elite.....but he has some serious concerns with commitment.

PS: The coaches know about him because he is a Florida boy!
