Bixby defensive tackle Brendon Evers has been another long-time commitment to Oklahoma State in the 2017 recruiting class. The All-State performer has helped Bixby win three straight state championships, the two most recent in Oklahoma's Class 6A-II.
Evers said the highlight for his big official visit weekend to Oklahoma State was spending time with all the other commitments in the class.
"Yes, just being able to hang out with all the guys," Evers said when we caught up with him on his way home Sunday. "A lot of the guys have been committed and we've been talking on social media, Twitter, and stuff, but to get to meet each other and interact was what was best about the weekend."
Evers, who is right around 6-2 and 290 pounds, is working hard to stay in good football shape. He said his activity this spring is to be in the weight room and involved in activities that will help him be as strong and in as good a shape as possible when he starts the program this summer at Oklahoma State.
"You are right, I did pay a lot of attention to our sessions with Coach [Rob] Glass and his staff," Evers added, who despite an MCL sprain to start the season finished with 45 tackles, nine sacks, and four fumbles caused. "I do want to work and stay in as good a shape as I can before starting the program here."
It's just this weekend and the meals on the visit didn't exactly help out with that.
"I feel like I'm weighing 320 pounds," Evers laughed. "The food was great and it was hard not to take advantage of it all. Every meal was great."
