Slow and steady approach for Avant

Miramar (Fla.) three-star wide receiver Sean Avant has had a relatively calm summer. The 6-foot, 175-pound wideout did hit the road and check out one school last month.
"I took an unofficial visit and I plan to go back for an official in December," Avant said. "I really enjoyed Bowling Green. It is a program that I just feel very comfortable around and I think I fit in there. I had a chance to talk with the coaches and the academic people there and they offer some great academics there. It isn't just about football, so that is what I like about that school.
"I just feel like it is a place I could be successful at for four years with great coaches, a great atmosphere, and a great opportunity," Avant added. "I really enjoyed the trip and that is why I am going to go back for an official in December."

Another school should be able to host Avant on their campus in the near future and show him around if he follows through on his plans.
"I haven't been anywhere else this summer," Avant said. "I am planning on going to FIU along with my mom. They want me to go with my mom so I can show her around and she can see the school. The visit may be next week. I have been to campus before but the coaches want me to get around there so they can talk with me and such."
The Golden Panthers, who have offered the local product, are a program that interests Avant.
"I like FIU, they throw the ball a lot, and they are close to home," Avant said. "I like the coaches a lot. I want to hang around the guys and see what the atmosphere is like. They are definitely someone I am looking into. They are a great school. I have to look more at their academics. I want to learn more about that."
Avant claims offers from Bowling Green, Florida International, Marshall, South Alabama, Syracuse, Temple, UCF, Wake Forest, and West Virginia. At this point in the process, he doesn't claim any favorites.
"I don't like to put anybody over anybody," Avant said. "After I go on all my visits I will be able to give you a number of top schools. I am not going to make a decision until I go on every one of my visits."
The South Florida wide receiver specifically mentioned that he intends to visit Marshall and Wake Forest at some point.
