JUCO QB Jarred Evans Commits

The University of Cincinnati recently received a commitment from 2014 JUCO quarterback Jarred Evans and BearcatInsider.com spoke with the signal caller about his decision.

As has been reported, Cincinnati football received the commitment of Jarred Evans out of Santa Barbara City College (Santa Barbara, CA.). Evans is listed as 6-foot-3, 191 pounds and is currently this season 83 of 155, 53.5%, 1179 yards, 13 touchdowns, 6 interceptions and averaging 235.8 yards per game passing. He's also rushed for 266 yards on 80 carries with 1 touchdown.

"Since becoming a JUCO player I've learned a lot. I have a lot more sense of the game and more maturity then most people coming in as freshman", Evans explained.

Evans discussed with Bearcat Insider what he plans to bring to the Bearcats. "I am a dual threat quarterback, but I love to throw the football. Throwing the football is the main thing; that's why I play quarterback", said Evans. "But when things break down, I like to run the football. I feel like both threats can help the team."

Asked what stood out about UC over the others, Evans had this to say. "I had great opportunities at the other schools that were recruiting me, UC just all over from start to beginning we've been on the same page," Evans stated.

"I've talked to Coach Darin Hinshaw and Coach Tommy Tuberville, both had one goal, WININNG. I want to be part of a winning program and I want to win myself," added Evans.

We also discuss what the coaches said about his possible role coming in next year and Evans said one word, "COMPETING."

"I was born to compete, since I was 3 years old. I love competing and that's something I look forward to doing," Evans said.

Evans is not only looking to compete but work hard in the film room and on the field. "If I work hard, dedicate my time in the room and study," he explained. "I feel like I can become the starting quarterback and that's what I look forward too."

Evans had one last thing to say to Bearcat Nation, "Prepare for a Good season next year."
