Tiger Rag caught up with Evans to see if those plans were still intact and if the Tigers were still in the mix.
"I have some mandatory stuff with my football team that may get in the way of me going to LSU," said the 6-foot, 180-pounder. "We have our ‘Commander Challenge' where we go through a lot of strength and conditioning tests to see where we are. I am one of the leaders on our team and they expect to me be there."
Evans has formed a good friendship with Avery Atkins in recent months and the two have talked about going to the same school. Atkins committed to Florida a little more than a week ago but LSU could still have a shot at Atkins down the road.
"I talked to Avery today," Evans said. "He said he is still going to the LSU camp and he is still looking at LSU. We have talked about playing together but we will have to see what happens."
Evans keeps in close contact with LSU defensive backs coach Kirby Smart and he likes what Smith tells him.
"He said he really likes my talent and said I could play on either side of the ball," Evans told Tiger Rag. "I will play wherever the team needs me but I think I would rather play DB than receiver."
As summer comes to an end Evans is trying to decide where he is going to take his official visits.
He has already decided on one official and it is to LSU. The leading candidates for the other four are Georgia, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee and Miami.
Is he ready to name a leader yet?
"I guess LSU is," he said. "I like them all but I like LSU a lot. They find ways to win games and I love that. They have a good team and good coaches so you can't ask for more than that."
