Troy Evangelist has caught 18 passes for 293 yards and five touchdowns. He caught four passes for 50 yards, including a 9-yard score in their 21-13 win over St. Thomas Academy.
Head coach Wally Malstrom had nothing but good things to say about one of his captains.
"He is very athletic. He is a good receiver who does a good job at fighting off blockers. He makes acrobatic catches. He is very likeable and leads our team in sacks."
" A lot of people are sending me stuff. Minnesota has shown interest, while I had not heard as much from Wisconsin recently."
Evangelist has not yet received an offer or set up a visit. He has not had a chance to attend a Gopher home game this season.
"I probably should get to one."
Evangelist said that his strengths are blocking and catching the ball.
Evangelist scored a 27 on the ACT and has a 3.6 GPA. He is not sure of a major, but electrical engineering is a possibility.
Evangelist starts on both sides of the field, but is being looked at as a tight end in college.
"It is fun playing both sides on the field, but I know that rarely happens in college."
Evangelist is being recruiting by Minnesota assistant Moe Ankney.
