    Although very early in the recruiting process for Evans, he has four schools that he is most interested in at this point in his recruitment.

    "I like Ohio State, Mississippi State, DePaul, UCLA," he said.

    As of now, his defense is ahead of his offensive game.

    "I'm good at defense; I don't like for my man to score many points," said Evans. "I'm also good at blocking shots."

    A smart player on and off the court, Evans not only wants to play for a well-coached basketball program that will help him prolong his basketball career but also help him achieve another lofty goal of his.

    "I'm looking for a school that has good coaching and where I can go into either doctoring or nursing," said Evans. "(If I'm a doctor) I would like to be a surgeon."
