Listed as an Athlete, Averett has played several positions in high school including RB, Option QB, and CB. He hails from Woodbury high school in New Jersey and was overlooked in the early recruiting process by most analysts – probably due to the fact that his school is rather small. He is also one of the nation’s top track prospects winning the NJ state titles in several events and caught attention by posting the best long jump performance in New Jersey since Carl Lewis in 1979. With his size, he could figure into the Tide’s rotation at Safety and it would not be surprising to see him returning kicks. He’s that versatile.
