"He had a basketball game on Saturday," head coach Brian Kaminski explained.
The Spartans are one of the schools the 6'3, 310-lb defensive tackle was looking at following the coaching change at Wisconsin, but now a new coach has been named and contact has been made.
"He talked to Badgers coach Gary Andersen today so he was pretty excited. [Coach Andersen] came to school and talked to me and Craig ended up calling him, so they talked to him for about five minutes just to get a chance to get to know him a little bit. He seemed like a really good guy."
On the possibility of Evans attending other junior days, Kaminski said, "Not right now."
He also believes the Badgers may end up re-solidifying things with his star player.
"He was pretty sold on Wisconsin. He just wanted to get back in touch with those guys. To be honest with you, I think he'll probably stick to Wisconsin here, but I know Michigan State's been in contact."
