Ezedrick Evans will bring speed to Louisville

Ezedrick Evans, a speedy defensive back from Seagoville, Texas, joins three-star linebacker Mike Privott on Louisville's 2009 commit list. Evans, who runs the forty in the 4.4 range, figures to bring much needed speed to the Cardinals defensive backfield next year.

Ezedrick Evans, a speedy defensive back from Seagoville, Texas, joins three-star linebacker Mike Privott on Louisville's 2009 commit list. Evans, who runs the forty in the 4.4 range, figures to bring much needed speed to the Cardinals defensive backfield next year.

After camping at Louisville earlier this month, Evans, who also is a standout track and field athlete, gave the Cardinals a verbal commitment. He was also being recruited by several Big XII and Mountain West programs.

"I already liked (Louisville) and when they offered, I was grateful," Evans told the Dallas Morning News.

Evans, who plays running back and defensive back at Seagoville, was recruited to Louisville to play safety. Evans runs the forty in the 4.4 range and has been clocked in 10.74 in the 100m and should be able to cover lots of ground in the secondary for the Cardinals.

Evans, 5-11, 180-pounds, is the second player to verbally commit to Louisville in the Class of 2009, joining three-star Virginia linebacker Mike Privott.
