Evans Still Gaining Interest, Changes Schools

Malcolm Evans has changed schools, but still continues to receive interest from a number of schools across the nation, while getting accustomed to life in the north.

There has been a lot of change for 2015 guard Malcolm Evans in the past few months. The talented Mississippi-native not only has had an active summer on the recruiting trail, but recently changed schools and states.

The 6-foot 7 shooting guard/small forward recently began attending Burlington (NJ) Life Center Academy, after attending Jackson (MS) Forest Hill High School.

College coaches haven't had too difficult of time tracking Evans during the move. There are a number of schools recruiting him hard and that have extended scholarship offers.

Evans said that he has been hearing from Mississippi State, Massachusetts, UNLV, Florida State, Kansas State, and Michigan State the most.

UNLV seems to be standing out for the lengthy Evans.

"I like the coaching staff," Evans said. "I love Las Vegas and they have a very nice program."

Evans was extended an offer soon after Brandon Miller was hired as an assistant coach at Butler this spring, and it will be interesting to see if the Bulldogs begin to pursue him again this fall. He likes Butler despite the disconnect.

"I'm interested in Butler, but haven't had recent contact with them. It seems like it fits my skill levels."

With the move to New Jersey, location certainly won't be a factor for Evans. He is looking for a school that will allow him to major in a health care related field. He isn't sure when he will make a decision.
