Evans Starting to find Comfort Level

Heading into the final practices of his first spring in Cincinnati, quarterback Jarred Evans is starting to feel a comfort level that will allow him to fight for the starting job.

After transferring from Santa Barbara Community College to the University of Cincinnati, quarterback Jarred Evans looks to make a run for the starting position and make an impact on the team this coming season. Standing at 6-foot-2, he operated under a spread offense while at Santa Barbara. But his transition to playing in a hybrid offense of Pro Style and Spread has been smooth thus far.

Insider caught up with Evans after practice to talk about how he is fitting into the offense and the season that lies ahead.

"I'm getting more and more used to playing in this offense," Evans said. "But like everyone else on the team, we just have to work out a few kinks before the real games start. Day-by-day, I feel more comfortable in this offense and I feel like we, including myself can make such a great impact when we get this offense to where we want it to be."

When asked about the change of offensive styles that he is accustomed to, Evans commented on the curve of the new offense.

"It's gotten pretty much easier day-by-day like I said before, I just want to help the team in any possible way that I can," Evans said. "It's just a part of the growing pains that we all as players have to go through before the start of every season. We are still trying to find our identity and by the time the season starts, we will be ready."
