While he's not working out, Evans has been on the camp circuit already with visits to both Auburn and Alabama in the last week. He says right now the recruiting process is going well as he expects the attention to ramp up even more as he prepares for his senior season.

"Everything is going pretty good," Evans tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I went to an Alabama camp recently. I have just been taking some visits here and there and going to a few camps just being around some of the schools to feel them out a little bit."

Already very familiar with Auburn because of many visits to the campus to hang out with the coaches the last few years, Evans got another opportunity to see what the Tigers are all about recently when he took part in Big Cat Weekend. Making his second trip for the biggest recruiting weekend of the year in Auburn, Evans says the experience was even better than he could have imagined.

"It was actually a lot of fun," Evans says. "Just being around the coaches and players and some of the commits like Tre Williams, DeShaun Davis, and Jakell Mitchell from Opelika committed that day, I was just hanging out with them and it was fun.

"I really enjoyed myself being at Big Cat once again for the second year in a row. It seemed like it was a little bit better. The coaching staff this year, I really like them right now. I'm definitely trying to build a relationship with them. I enjoyed it a lot."

With plans to cut his list down to a top five late in the summer, Evans has plenty of options to choose from when the time comes. While noting is set in stone, it appears the Auburn Tigers will be in the running until the end for the talented defender.

"I'm getting a pretty big push with the coaches," Evans says of Auburn. "They are really trying to keep in contact with me every day they can. Actually me and Rhett Lashlee try to talk once a week if possible. They have been pushing at me pretty hard lately."
