Tim McAvoy on Michigan Visit, and his Injury
McAvoy has still been hearing from other schools since his commitment. "When they call I just politely tell them I've made my decision and there is now way ... I'm going to change my mind."
McAvoy said he wants to major in architecture, and had a chance to look at the program while on the visit. He said he was very impressed. Other events included taking in a pair of Michigan hockey games. "That is a unique place," McAvoy said of Yost Ice Arena. "I really liked the chants, which I can't repeat for a magazine."
McAvoy had surgery in December to repair a disk in his neck. He said the topic of his recovery came up in discussions with Michigan coach Ansy Moeller. "The doctors told me I would recover 100-percent," he said. "Coach Moeller was happy to hear that. I haven't felt any pain since the surgery, and I didn't even use any of the pain medication. Coach Moeller said they would take it slow anyway, just to be safe."
McAvoy played tight end for Bloomington, but will move inside when he reports to camp. "Coach Moeller said it would be either guard or tackle," McAvoy said. "It doesn't really matter to me since both positions would be new" (he played tight end in high school).
