Linebacker High On Auburn's Program

This football prospect discusses his interest in the Tigers.

Prichard, Ala.--Chris Evans says his official visit to Auburn was "great" and the Tigers are at the top of his list of college choices.

However, he is still waiting on an offer from Auburn, but says he should know something on that subject prior to Wednesday's signing day.

"I like the college, the tradition, the people, the coaches and academic programs at Auburn," says Brown, a 6-0, 217-pound linebacker from Blount High School.

An honor student with a perfect grade point average throughout high school, one of the highlights of his weekend in Auburn was checking out the engineering program on campus. He said he likes what he saw in that regard.

"I also enjoyed getting to meet with Coach (Tommy) Tuberville and Coach Joe Whitt," he says.

Linebacker Travis Williams was the player host for Evans, who says that if he doesn't go to Auburn he might pick a new player in his recruitment--North Carolina State. "They offered me a full scholarship," he says. "I did some research on them and they have a strong engineering program so I am interested."

Evans has also been considering Louisville and The Citadel as well as others. He says the academic part of the equation is important to him and adds that he got the impression on his weekend at Auburn that academics are important in the AU football program.

"If you don't hit the books, you don't play," he says. "They check up on you all the time to make sure you don't get behind on your grades. I liked the academic part. I enjoyed the speaker I talked to about engineering and I like the academic support staff."

Evans, who had 105 tackles as a senior, says he also enjoyed meeting Auburn's team chaplain, Chette Williams, during his visit to AU.
