Andre Levrone on the day he committed to UVa

2012 was supposed to be Andre Levrone’s breakout season. It turned out to be one of frustration for the 6’2″ senior wide receiver. The Good Counsel (Olney, MD) product was disappointed on an individual level — certainly not with his team, which captured the WCAC championship — but disappointment is turning to excitement as he eyes his freshman year at the University of Virginia.

A broken left tibia suffered in Good Counsel’s regular season opener sidelined Levrone for the rest of the 2012 season, save a brief late season comeback that also ended in injury. After offseason surgery, the he is now on the road to recovery.

“When I first got hurt, the doctors noticed the fracture but didn’t catch cysts I had on the bone,” said Levrone, who had high hopes for what would have been his first full season as a starter on a powerful Good Counsel team. “When I came back and started playing again and I got hurt again, they checked me out again and found them. I had them removed and I’m back to training and everything.”

Levrone isn’t quite back to normal, training-wise. He hopes to get full health clearance on January 7, when he visits his doctor, but as of now he is only allowed to lift weights. Once cleared, Levrone plans to resume a full workout load with trainer Myron Flowers, who has worked with NFL players including Vernon Davis and Vontae Davis .

Listed at 6’2″, Levrone says he is inching closer to 6’3″. Combine that height with a 200-pound frame, and the former Falcons standout could present a nice contrast to the speedy but smaller Cavalier wideouts such as Darius Jennings and Dominique Terrell .

Levrone would love to contribute as a true freshman. If he isn’t part of the rotation, it won’t be due to lack of effort.

“One thing I can definitely say about myself is I have a great work ethic,” said Levrone,
