Recruiting: Evans Up To 10 Offers

With the H1N1 flu it really depends on where you are living as to how severely the activities have been curtailed. The UIL in Texas has suspended all competition including track meets, baseball, golf, and softball. Now as for intra school activities such as spring football, that depends on your school district and how many cases or how much panic there is in the district over the H1N1 flu.

"Our track season was over," reported cornerback Ciante Evans of Arlington (Seguin), Texas. "We are still playing football. Our school is not out, so we're practicing every day. We've had lots of coaches come by. It has been busy."

The 6-0, 175-pounder has tremendous speed and really good cover skills as he finished with four interceptions last season and has drawn plenty of attention already in recruiting.

Among the schools that have offered Evans are Oklahoma State, Colorado State, Kansas, Nebraska, Houston, TCU, and Texas A&M. There are still a multitude that are sending letters and communicating with him including two that recently extended offers.

"Yes, I've had Arizona and Louisiana Tech offer me," said Evans. "Arizona offered about a week and a half ago and Louisiana Tech about a week ago. "I'm up to 10 offers."

Evans is taking recruiting easy. He is just keeping tabs on which coaches come by Seguin High School this spring. He did make a trip up to Stillwater for the Orange-White game a couple of weeks ago.

"It was great," said Evans. "I toured the facilities again and they are incredible and they had come further along. They are the best. The game was good and Oklahoma State is going to have a good team. I didn't see it all because we had to leave early to get back but I got to talk to the coaches before the game."

Checking with some of the high school coaches, they felt there were just as many college coaches on the road right now evaluating. Most of the school districts are open right now. Coaches are missing one of their favorite activities during the spring, the regional track meets, but it is giving way to more viewing of players actually playing football rather than running in skimpy shorts or a body suit.
