Evans Talks First Trip to UGA

Georgia offered this junior out of Alabama very early in the process and he spent time in Athens for the first time over the weekend.

"It was my first trip over to Georgia, so I didn't know what to expect, but it was nice. The campus was very big and a little more spread out than I expected, but if had a little different feel to it, and I liked it," said Rashaan Evans.

Georgia was the second school to offer this 6-foot-3, 215 pound junior out of Auburn, Ala. The Dawgs spent time at his high school in the spring and they liked what they saw, so what does Evans think about UGA?

"The biggest thing that stood out to me during the game was how crazy the fans are at Georgia. They are really behind their team and I liked that.

"I like Coach [Mark] Richt too. I got to talk with him for a little while before the game and he was telling me how they liked me, how they like what I do on the field, and then he told me a little about the school. He made a really good first impression on me. He is laid back like I am.

"Georgia is a good school and I have interest in them. The traffic after the game is terrible, so that was the worst part about the visit, but I had a good time."

The future four-star on Fox Sports Next is being recruited by Georgia to play linebacker and the Bulldog coaches told him who they would like for him to play like if he chose the Dawgs.

"The coaches told me to watch Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree because they want to use me in that way," Evans said. "I really focused on those guys and the linebackers in general during the game and those guys are good. They run that 3-4 scheme, they play a lot of linebackers, and their linebackers are fast. I could see myself playing in that type of defense."

It is too early for Evans to name a leader, he just wants to explore his options and take some visits before he thinks about that.

"I have only visited Auburn and Georgia (first two schools to offer), so I want to see other places, compare some schools to each other, and I will go from there. Right now, I am open to everyone," Evans said.
