Two lead for Evans

The NBPA Top 100 Camp naturally featured a slew of elite players, guys we've watched and will continue to watch extensively. But a handful of lesser knowns such as Evans competed as well, and successfully so.

For Jacob Evans, exposure is not something he takes for granted. He plays for the Louisiana Dynasty travel team, not one of the glamour programs on the travel circuit. He also lives in the Deep South, a region of the country that receives little media coverage relative to the available talent.

And Evans made good on his experience at camp. He showed off a nice jump shot and a good frame for the college level, and at 6-5 he has sufficient size for wing forward.

Evans holds numerous scholarship offers from high- and mid-major programs, with two schools currently standing out.

"I would like to take unofficials to Memphis and South Carolina," Evans said. He nodded when asked if those two schools had achieved separation from the field.

"I have offers from Alabama, LSU, Memphis, South Carolina, UAB, ULL (Louisiana-Lafayette), Tulane, UTEP and Richmond," he said. "I've also heard from UCLA, Wichita State, VCU, Florida and Creighton."

Evans will tour with the Dynasty to a handful of July events, including the Big Shots tournament in Myrtle Beach, a tournament his team hosts and the Fab 48 in Las Vegas late next month.

Communication looms large in his recruitment.

"I want to be able to communicate with the whole coaching staff," Evans said. "I also want to visit and talk to the players. Not just the starters but also the bench players, to see how everyone gets along.

He noted that he doesn't regard distance from home as significant and that he wants a family-oriented feel at the school of his choice.
