Evans On The Mind Of Auburn Commitment

Auburn commitment Tre Williams talks about his official visit and trying to get Rashaan Evans on board in this recruiting class.

Mobile, Ala.--For five-star linebacker and longtime Auburn commitment Tre Williams, this weekend's official visit to the Plains was a mere formality. Solid with his decision to play for Gus Malzahn and the Tigers, Williams says that it was just a time for him to enjoy being back in Auburn and getting to spend time with his fellow commitments and future teammates.

"It was great," Williams says. "The bonding was great. We hung out with the other players. I have a really good feeling about being there in May.

"All we did was joke around and have fun for most of the time," he adds. "We basically talked about what is going to happen next year. We were telling everybody that they've got something coming next year. We're going to make it back to the national championship. We're going to have a really good season. We've got a lot of great players coming in and we might have a couple more on signing day. It's going to be fun."

One of the top players still left on Auburn's board is five-star defender Rashaan Evans from Auburn High. Taking a visit to Alabama this weekend and scheduled to visit the Tigers next week, Evans is a physical player that Williams has gotten to know well throughout the recruiting process and when they played together both at the Alabama-Mississippi All Star Game and the Under Armour All-American Game.

Now planning on returning next weekend on his own to spend time with Evans in Auburn, Williams says that he's going to do everything he can to get his friend to join him with the Tigers.

"That's an everyday thing," he says of working on Evans. "That's how much we want Rashaan. I'm trying to talk to him every day, but I'm trying to get away from the football standpoint and get towards the brother-type thing. We've created that bond through the Alabama-Mississippi Game and the Under Armour Game. I think it's coming along."

With Evans still looking at Auburn, Alabama and UCLA, Williams says that his goal next weekend is just to be there for his friend and let him know he's got someone to lean on in the last few weeks.

"I'll be there," Williams says of Auburn next weekend. "I'm trying to surprise him a little bit, just to let him know that I'm always here for him and that he can be comfortable around me. We're just trying to make him feel comfortable and let him know that it's really home."

Williams is expected to be joined back in Auburn next weekend by Racean Thomas, Kamryn Pettway and several commitments.
