The difference of the athlete is tough but he will also go against players that play the pass at a big time level in a game that normally sees the defense with an advantage. Will need to make time with his feet and get rid of the ball quickly.
He will be just fine! I'm pretty sure you will see! Very deserving of this spot

1. He is playing against better athletes than he is accustomed to? He will also have better
players around him
2. Most teams he plays against do not normally go against teams that throw the ball often?
3. The defense historically has an advantage in this game?
4. Due to #3 and him not being a physically large QB he will need to avoid the rush and not hold the ball too long?
From being around Avent Jr I think he is smart and savvy enough that he will be able to overcome most of what SC will throw at him but it is an uphill battle for almost every QB in this contest.

That 3A-5A stuff does not matter all the time. Just as many of those guys that played in that game have gone on to college to be average. Only a select few are truly elite. It is just a game were coaches pick kids to fit the type of scheme they are going to run. I think Avent was working on getting into this game before his injury.

Watched some clips on Avent. Murphy kid better passer. Avent faster a little more adgile. Avent looked like he would be hard to deal with. Curry cut his hand (index finger of throwing hand) bad on first series went back in bad sprang ankle after that (taped it went back in) stitches after game.Couldn't throw well after that. Maybe next year for Curry. There will be a few good QB's in west next year. I think the Avent kid deserves it. Looks the part to me. Good for him.
