Currently standing 6-foot-6 and weighing between 290-295 pounds, massive offensive lineman Kyle McAvoy, is excited about his commitment to play for the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Choosing Minnesota was an easy choice for McAvoy stating, "The atmosphere, coaches, and academics all just felt right."

It's no coincidence that McAvoy has established the best relationship with the coach responsible for recruiting him to Minnesota and coaching him in the future, offensive line coach Tim Davis. "He is just a great guy who is very knowledgeable and knows how to get people fired up. Coach Davis said that he can see me playing either guard or tackle."

McAvoy's versatility is appealing as is what he brings to the table as a player succinctly stating, "[I'm] a player that leads by example, is aggressive, and smart."

While he doesn't know what position on the offensive line he will play, he does know he will be playing with, twin brother Luke McAvoy. "Playing with him in high school has been great and I think the feeling with multiply once we play together in college. I think it will be great."

Kyle and his brother Luke weren't the only siblings from the McAvoy family to play Big Ten football. Their older brother Tim McAvoy played offensive line and was a three-year letterman for the Michigan Wolverines. The family ties are a major reason why Kyle can't wait to play against the Maize and Blue.

With his future set as a Golden Gopher, McAvoy can completely focus on his last season of high school football in Bloomington, Illinois. His goals for the season are simple," Lots of winning. Hopefully a good run in the playoffs leading to a championship game."
