Ravenscroft's Edwards commits to UNC

Ravenscroft School's Avery Edwards made a verbal commitment over the weekend.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound tight end committed to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, according to Ravenscroft football coach Ned Gonet.

Edwards was sought after by a number of schools, holding offers from Appalachian State, Arkansas, Duke, Florida State, Louisville, N.C. State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

"I think the attraction to him is his versatility and his ability to play multiple sets in a college offense," Gonet said on Tuesday. "I think Avery has good athleticism, he has good, solid speed, and he knows the game well."

According to, Edwards is a three-star prospect, ranked the No. 19 overall player in the state of North Carolina and the No. 25 tight end in his class.

"Many schools were interested in him because he could fit into their mold on offense," said Gonet. "He has a great work ethic and has great ball skills."

Last season, Ravenscroft returned just three starters on the varsity football team. The team went 4-7 for the season, but with a lot of experience returning this season, Gonet expects Edwards to have a very good senior season.

"He's been a very important part of what we've been doing here, and hopefully his senior season is his best yet," Gonet said.

Depends; Whether it was an existing offer, or once had an offer.

Of course they don't. That's why state college had an offer to him, because state college didn't need him.

NC State signed two tight ends. They didn't need a third one. Wish him the best.
