From previous Pack Pride article - NC State-USM: The Good And The Bad
Efficient Evans: Redshirt sophomore Daniel Evans got his chance late in the game, and he made the most of it.
With inconsistent starter Marcus Stone against struggling, Evans was inserted into the lineup late in the contest, and he impressed. Evans completed 8-of-11 passes for 97 yards, including a 21-yard scoring pass to John Dunlap. He threw an interception on his final series, but it wasn't what would be labeled a "bad" interception. Southern Miss defensive tackle Martavius Prince made a great play on the ball, and it was really not a bad read by Evans.
What did Evans show in his limited time? First of all, USM still had several starters in the game, as Jasper Faulk, the team's top corner was beat on the touchdown pass, and Evans showed a lot of poise. He remained cool in the pocket when USM did bring pressure, and he went through his progressions when the Golden Eagles dropped eight into coverage. He was accurate, efficient and intelligent with his reads. Evans certainly looked good, and could it be a glimpse of things to come?
