Evans, who committed to Wisconsin early and re-committed in early January, parted ways with the Badgers on Monday and shortly after announced he had committed to be a Spartan.
The flip by the 6-foot-2, 310-pound Evans might have visited East Lansing multiple times since his Wisconsin commitment – including a trip on Jan. 25 to see MSU play Michigan – but to actually flip him to green and white is impressive.
Wisconsin is good at keeping top kids in-state, but that hasn't stopped the Spartans from hitting the state as hard as they can, which resulted in pulling wide receiver R.J. Shelton last year. Shelton made contributions as a true freshman and cornerback Trae Waynes also is a Wisconsin native.
With Evans, the Spartans secured a player coveted by many schools nationally and a player that starts off a week that could be huge for them.
Evans also adds the luster of star power to a class that has picked up more "cornerstone" type players in the past couple months, which started with Montae Nicholson (Monroeville Gateway, Pa.).
It could be the first domino of a big week for Michigan State.
