Visit A Perfect '10' For LB Commitment

Linebacker commitment Jonathan Evans talks about his official visit to Auburn over the weekend.

Mobile, Ala.--The brother of former Auburn linebacker Chris Evans, Jonathan Evans is hoping to make his own place in Tiger football history, but it didn't keep him from getting one more weekend together with his brother on the Plains. Evans took his official visit to Auburn on Friday-Sunday and says it gave him a chance to check out everything while also getting to spend more quality time with his older brother.

"It went really great," Evans tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I got a chance to see the campus and the stadium again. Everything went really great. It was definitely a 10."

One of the biggest reasons for Evans coming up on his official visit now was to get a chance to meet and talk with the new coaching staff. He says that getting a chance to talk football with Gene Chizik and Ted Roof gave him an even better feel about the future of the Tigers.

"I got a chance to meet the head coach, Coach Chizik," Evans says. "He's a really good guy. I think he's a great man.

"Coach Roof is a really cool guy," he adds. "He just said he's ready for me to come in and get to work."

In addition to being with his brother while on his visit, Evans says that he also spent plenty of time with fellow Mobile commitments Terrence Coleman and LaVoyd James along with his player host Mike Slade. He notes that getting to hang out with them was one of the best parts of the weekend.

"It was great hanging around with them and having guys from the same area I'm from," Evans says. "That was a great feeling. He (Chris) was also around with me and showed me around. I had a great time with my brother."

Evans says that while he's solid in his decision to attend Auburn, he does have at least one more official visit scheduled.

"I'm going to Oklahoma State next week," Evans says. "I've got more lined up, but I don't know if I'm going to take them yet. I'm still solid to Auburn."
