Evans Ready For Season

Terry Evans of St. Louis (MO) Cardinal Ritter is a young man with something to prove. After missing the summer season, he's ready to get his senior year underway.

Terry Evans, a standout with the St. Louis Eagles, missed the entire summer of 2003. A potential high-major prospect, Evans had his knee scoped.

"I just had a simple scope," Evans said. "There wasn't that major damage. It was like wear and tear over time. I had a big dip in my knee because of a bone chip. They had to fix that."

Known for his athleticism, Evans thinks he's almost back to 100%. "The knee is good. I'm going to therapy once a week. I've been playing for the past couple weeks."

Still, he's going to be a spring signee and a popular one at that. A handful of schools have been with him the entire time. I'm talking to SLU, the Salukis, Western Illinois, Arkansas-Little Rock and Wisconsin-Green Bay right now."

Schools are careful not to burn any visits with him because they understand his timetable is the spring. "Most of them say they want to do it in the spring since I'm going to sign late.

"I need a school with an up tempo game that likes to press and play in your face defense."

"If somebody calls me up on an official visit, I'll go. Western Illinois set up an official. I was going to do one earlier but he told me that since I'm going to sign in the spring I should wait."
