Evans doesn't get many chances to return kicks as he is averaging 40 yards per return. Despite being a workhorse on offense, Evans also starts at cornerback and thus far he has two interceptions to show for his efforts.
Evans can bench 275 pounds, squats 400 and he has a 36-inch vertical jump. Evans runs the 100M (10. , 200M (22.0) and he anchors the 4X100 and the open 400M relay.
To set the record straight Evans is a commitment to Penn State, where he officially visited last weekend. However, he is still going to take visits and is actually a soft commitment to Penn State.
"I just want to make sure that I am going to the right place and that is why I still want to take some visits," said Evans. "I am pretty sure I am going to Penn State, but I am going to visit Oklahoma, Stanford and Texas A&M. All three of those schools have offered me at this time."
"Penn State just seemed to be more of a home fit for me and I loved the coaches there. It just seemed to be the right school at the right time. At Oklahoma they have always had a great history of running backs and they have sent several to the pros. Oklahoma is one of the best programs in the country and they are doing great right now. I haven't set a date with the other schools yet, but I will soon."
