Evans Shows Up Big In Miami

As we have reported several times recently, Oklahoma State is getting serious on quarterbacks with the unofficial visit last week by Wes Lunt and his parents. The Cowboys staff also offered a scholarship to Brent Vanderveen of Arroyo Grande, Calif. There are others in the mix and standout Dane Evans of Sanger, Texas in one of those.

Evans doesn't have the size but does have a rocket arm and his father reports he showed off the arm a little in Miami, Fla.

"Dane was at the University of Miami in Coral Gables this past weekend and was fortunate enough to come away with Camp QB MVP Honors," reported his dad.

"He looked really good and hoped to get an offer. Coach (Jedd) Fisch (former Seattle Seahawks quarterbacks coach and new Miami offensive coordinator) offered (Preston) Dewey (from Austin Private School) and (Gray) Crow (of Clearwater Countryside, Fla.), and told Dane that he is going to continue to recruit him, that he is in their remaining top three.

"He will be at LSU this weekend and is excited to visit and workout for Coach Kragthorpe.

"He still lists OSU as his number one and stated he wished Coach (Mike) Gundy and (Todd) Monken would offer so he could get off the road and just be committed to his number one school," added Mr. Evans.

The Cowboys rate on top right now and there are plenty of reasons for Oklahoma State and its staff and other schools to like Evans. He may be shorter than most schools are looking for in a quarterback right now.

Evans is a winner who led Sanger into the playoffs by completing 203-of-303 passes for 67 percent and 3,420 yards. He tossed 37 touchdowns passes and just 10 interceptions. He also rushed for 110 yards and another touchdown. He earned All-District and Offensive MVP honors as well as Honorable Mention Associated Press All-State.

"I would say Oklahoma State is at the top of my list," said the 6-0, 196-pound Evans. "I call them once a week and talk with Coach (Kasey) Dunn or Coach Monken. That is the school I would most like to play for. Then there is Utah and I call them once a week too. Then there is the Texas schools and I've talked to OU a little bit but not in awhile. LSU is the only school out of region that I'm looking at other than Utah."

Evans is also expected to be in Stillwater for Oklahoma State's upcoming one-day camp in June.
