Recruiting: Evans Says OSU Or Georgia Tech

Record-setting running back Jamaal Evans of Irving, Texas, told me two new aspects of his recruiting tonight, and both point in a good direction for either Oklahoma State or Georgia Tech.

"It's really down to those two schools, Oklahoma State and Georgia Tech," said the 5-9, 200-pound runner. "I think about Oklahoma State a lot and I think about Georgia Tech a lot. I'm not going to visit Iowa State this coming weekend. I'm probably through visiting. I'm going to graduate early so I can be at one of those schools in the spring."

So Evans is down to the two schools and he is going to report to one of them early - in time to start school in the spring semester and be available for spring football. Evans visited Oklahoma State this past weekend and made his official trip to Georgia Tech on the Thanksgiving weekend. Tonight Georgia Tech running backs coach Curtis Modkins and one other assistant were in his home. They had left about 30 minutes before we spoke with him. He said that Oklahoma State coaches will come in and visit in the home later this week.

As for his visit to Stillwater this weekend, Evans said it went well.

"John Johnson showed me around and there was nothing bad at all about it," added the all-time leading rusher in Irving High School history. "We went to the basketball game and I knew a lot of the recruits that were there so I talked to them a lot and got to meet a lot of the OSU players. Everybody said they were having a good time. I had a chance to talk with Coach Gundy (head coach Mike Gundy) and that went real good."

Evans has a lot to think about and when we asked him when we should check in with him again, he suggested this coming Sunday or next Monday.
