Noles Tender Cornerback

The last two years Jacksonville (Fla.) Ed White has produced two very highlight regarded cornerbacks that have ended up signing with the University of Florida. This year, it looks like there will be another big-time defensive back out of Ed White and the Seminoles and Gators have already tendered cornerback Bryan Evans with a verbal offer.

"I have already been offered by Maryland, Florida, Florida State," Evans said. "There are a lot of schools looking at me. I'm not sure who I like and I'm undecided now."

It looks like there is a very good chance it could come down to a Nole and Gator battle in the end for the services of Evans.

"I grew up a fan of Florida State and Florida," the 6-foot-0 and 173 pound standout with 4.4 40 speed said. "Walter Payton and Deon Sanders were my two favorite players growing up."

Evans, who is rated by as the No. 9 best player in the state for the class of 2005, has some amazing stats on the field as a junior. In addition to five interceptions and seven kickoff returns for a touchdown, the all-first coast standout rushed for 733 yards on only 66 carries.

What are his goals for his senior campaign?

Complete what coach has started," he said. "Stay rough and physical on the field, win ten games, win state, and get a ring."

Evans is good student that carries a 2.8 grade point average and he would like to major in computers in college.

Today, the Gators might have added another advantage in the recruitment of Bryan Evans when Ed White Head Coach Dan Disch was named the new defensive back coach for the Florida Gators.
