Duke First To Offer Florida WR

Art Evans says the Blue Devils are the first program to offer him a scholarship.

Evangel Christian athlete Art Evans (6-1, 175, 4.48) received his first scholarship offer Tuesday from an ACC school. His offer list will continue to grow throughout the recruiting season, but it's always exciting receiving the first one.

"I got my first scholarship offer today from Duke," said Art Evans from Lakeland, (Fla.). "One of the Duke coaches called my coach this morning. I called him back around 9:00 a.m. He told me they were sending me a scholarship in the mail within the next week."

"I am very excited. It's a big relief to finally receive my first offer. It takes a lot of pressure off of me now. I am looking forward to receiving more offers."

Evans broke the county record during his junior season with eleven interceptions. He recorded over 1,300 yards receiving as well.
