According to Evans, North Carolina stepped up their recruitment after watching Tyreke show toughness this summer. Scout.com's 2nd ranked player played the entire month of July with an injury.
"He played on that ankle and we didn't want him to do it at all, but I guess it was for the best because he was impressing a lot of people with a bad ankle."
With the scholarship offer now on the table, the next step is Evans taking a visit to Chapel Hill. This is something that North Carolina and Evans have discussed, but a date has not been worked out.
"No, not yet," Reggie Evans said. "We have been putting [future] unofficials off for a while because of our season and the situation with the loss of our father. We didn't want to do much. We are going to take an unofficial for a basketball game and see those guys and see Wayne [Ellington] and them play."
Evans and his family did travel to Louisville this past weekend for an unofficial visit. They came away impressed with the coaching staff and fan support.
"I think it was a good visit," Reggie said. "Rick Pitino is Rick Pitino and he's a great coach. They have that staff together just like we thought. The campus looked nice. The atmosphere was good."
Along with North Carolina and Louisville, Evans is also interested in Connecticut, Villanova, Texas and Ohio State. That Aston (Pa.) American Christian standout has plenty of options and is receiving a lot of attention from his top schools.
"It's starting to peak," Evans said of the recruitment. "Going into his junior year, there's a lot of guys that are coming hard. His top teams are coming hard and they respect who he is and they aren't being shy about wanting him."
