Lavontay Evans, a 6-4, 196 receiver from Jenkins County High School, is a prospect to watch for the 2012 signee class.
"I saw a lot of interesting things at Auburn and I saw a lot of things I like about it,"?he tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I like the way they have got their program going. I like their emphasis on education and the family. I do think if I decided to go there it would be a good place for me."
"I play wide receiver, which is my favorite position, and I also play defensive end to fit in and be a link in the chain that is my team," Evans says. "I am playing where I?have to because I want a state championship and I am willing to do whatever I have to do to get the ring."
Evans, like his teammates Deloach and Taylor, says he can't wait to see what Jenkins County will do this season. "I think this is going to be an excellent year for us."
Like many of the top athletes at small high schools (Jenkins County is a Class A team) he plays more than one sport. "I also play baseball, basketball and I run track," he says.
Alabama and Georgia Southern are among the colleges recruiting him, says Evans who adds, "I have had a couple of teams that told me they are going to be looking to give me a scholarship, but I don't have any offers yet."
