Living in Kennesaw Georgia, Jason Evans is an unlikely Oregon prospect. He has been receiving college scholarship offers since his sophomore year in high school and the number has now grown to over thirty. Evans can play just about anywhere he wants, but he became interested in the Ducks after watching their games on television. Now Oregon just might have a chance.
Jason Evans is one of the premier running back prospects in the country and considered a top 100 recruit nationally by most of the services. Jason is a 6-1, 190, 4.4 forty, dynamo that can run through or around most defenders. Last year he rushed for 1,376 yards, 15 TDs and averaged an amazing 10.7 yards per carry. On defense, Jason added 46 tackles and four interceptions from his cornerback position. His bloodlines are also impressive. Older brother Brandon plays for Northwestern and his father Terry used to line up for the Seattle Seahawks. Jason is also an excellent student with a 3.7 GPA.
After his initial interest, the mail from Eugene began to arrive and Evans started to like Oregon even more. Running backs coach Gary Campbell is recruiting Jason for the Ducks and the family really appreciates his low-pressure approach while still doing an excellent job. Last week Mike Bellotti turned up the heat a little when he offered Jason Evans a scholarship, the first known offer extended to a running back this year. His father Terry thinks that Jason would be the perfect fit for the Oregon system and suddenly the Ducks have jumped into their top five favorites. It won't be easy to sign this premier running back, but Jason Evans is now looking forward to visiting Eugene to give Oregon a very serious look.
