TCU Eyeing 2014 DE

Dallas Skyline defensive end Victor Evans is getting interest from TCU.

Among the top standouts from Sunday's Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 camp in Lancaster was Dallas Skyline defensive end Victor Evans. The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder was one of the top performers in one-on-one work against various offensive linemen and caught the attention of a number of onlookers.

"It was a good experience, I had a lot of fun," Evans said.

With a quick first step and a good frame to add weight on, it should come as no surprise that several programs are showing interest in the nation's No. 23 ranked defensive end for the 2014 class. Evans is also a member of the initial FOX Sports NEXT 300 list.

Evans currently holds one offer but others could be soon to follow.

"SMU has offered me and TCU and Baylor have said that they're in the process of offering me."

Newly hired TCU linebacker coach DeMontie Cross visited Skyline two weeks ago and according to what Evans was told from his coaches, the coach was very impressed.

"The thing I've heard regarding an offer is my recruiting coach told me that they were real interested in my film and think I'm a physical and fast specimen and they're going to stay in contact," Evans said of TCU.

TCU currently has one Skyline product on their roster in linebacker Paul Dawson. Evans knows the Frogs have a good program and are always on the rise.

"I know they're a good football team and have a good program and they're always getting better," he said. "I know it's a good program."

SMU, Baylor and TCU aren't the only programs showing strong interest. Evans has a couple of junior day invites and the only problem for now is deciding which one to attend.

"Oklahoma, Michigan State and Indiana send a lot of letters," he said. "I have junior day invites at Baylor and OU. I've got to pick which one to go to."

Evans quickly answered when asked what the most important factor he's considering when picking a school; academics. He credits his coaches and teachers at Skyline for helping him put a strong focus on education.

"I'm looking at academics first, I want a good academic foundation because the main reason I'm doing good right now is because my coaches and teachers stay on me," he said.
