One of the most highly sought after recruits that will be on the Clemson campus this weekend is a four-star prospect from Texas.

Jawun Evans is returning to the Upstate on Friday afternoon. The former Legacy Charter School [Greenville] point guard will be back in the area to visit with family on Friday before heading down to Clemson on Saturday.

"Just to spend time with them and get to talk to them some more," he said, during a recent interview with CUTigers, when asked about the Clemson visit.

The four-star point guard moved to Dallas at the end of his summer, where he now attends Kimball High School. Ranked by Scout.com as the No. 5 point guard in the class of 2015, Evans is becoming one of the most highly recruited point guards in the country.

Clemson offered Evans last December while he was in for one of his previous visits. And there have been several of them over the last year, most recent of which was in June for the Brad Brownell Elite Camp.

"We've been talking a lot since I moved out here. We're still talking a lot," Evans said.

In addition to Clemson, South Carolina, Cincinnati and DePaul, all of whom offered before Evans moved. Illinois, Memphis, SMU, Southern Cal and VCU have also gotten into the mix.

Schools like Baylor, Kansas and Texas are also expressing interest. His most recent campus visit was to Baylor.

Geography will have little bearing on where Evans decides to go to school.

"That's going to have nothing to do with it. I'm still open to anywhere," he said.

And, he's still in the air when it comes to favorites.

When asked which schools are recruiting him the hardest, Evans said, "The schools would be Clemson, VCU, Baylor, Southern Cal, Illinois and Kansas, they're starting to show interest."

As a sophomore at Legacy, Evans scored 26 points, dished out 11 assists and grabbed eight rebounds per game.
