Tyree Evans Commits

Tyree Evans, a 5th year prospect out of Richmond, reached a college decision on Monday. The current Winchendon student, and big time shooter, is off the board already.

Last year, we ranked Tyree Evans the No. 84 prospect in America. The former Richmond (Va.) George Wythe standout is headed to Winchendon for a year of prep school.

On Monday, Evans ended his recruitment basically before it could begin. "First I heard it from the mom," Winchendon head coach Mike Byrnes said. "Then I wanted to hear it from the horse's mouth. He landed at Boston and I met with him today at 2 [p.m.] and he wanted me to tell everyone that he's going to the University of Cincinnati."

Evans averaged nearly 30 points a game last season. Known for his dead-eye shooting, Evans doesn't lack confidence and is a big pickup for a team that has long had an affection for guys who can stroke it.

"I flat out score," Evans said. "I put the ball in the hoop. I'll let it go from 42 feet. I just know it's accurate and I am right. I don't know how it get it but I just put it right there."

Byrnes said that UAB, Virginia Tech and Miami were amongst the schools interested in coming to campus in July to watch him workout. Evans will not be on the summer circuit as he'll be in school working on his grades.

The shooting guard realized a dream on Monday. "Ever since the first time they visited me I wanted to go there. Wherever I was going to go, they were going to support me. That just made me even love Cincinnati even more."

Evans' career-high in points is 51. In that game he stroked 9 3s en route to shooting 20-for-25 from the field.
