Has Jason Narrowed Things Down?

Jason Evans, a sensational running back prospect from Georgia, is working hard to widdle his list down to one lucky team. Who are his finalists?

Name: Jason Evans
Position: RB
Height: 6'1 1/2"
Weight: 185 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.4
Bench Press: 260 pounds
School: Harrison High, Kennesaw, GA

Jason still lists the same 3 favorites, "Texas A&M, Penn State and Stanford."

He did not talked to any of the coaching staffs from those 3 schools this month.

He grew up a fan of Michigan. The Wolverines, however, have not offered the outstanding Georgia athlete a scholarship.

"I think they're pretty much out of the picture," Jason said.

Does he have a favorite among his top 3 teams?

"No, not really," he said. "I'm still really debating it a whole lot. I'm going to try to get it down in the next 3 weeks. It's really between those three."

Jason has taken visits to all 3 schools and hopes to make a decision before the first game of his senior season.

Was there anything on his visits that was different from what he expected?

"Stanford's practice was a lot different than what I expected. I expected it to be strict and real gruesome. I watched the spring practice and the players seemed to love it out there."

Jason has done his research in regard to each schools' depth charts at running back.

"Most likely, I'll end up redshirting wherever I go, but you never know," he admitted.

Jason carries a 3.75 GPA and scored a 1090 on the SAT. He has not yet spoken with the Nittany Lion coaching staff about the possibility of applying for admission into the honors college at Penn State.

What does Jason like about each of his favorites?

Stanford - "It's in California. It's a great school with great academics. I would also be able to play for a great football team."

Penn State - "Joe Paterno is there, he's a great coach and the coaching staff there is great. I'd be able to play early also."

Texas A&M - "I loved it down there. The place was great. The school was huge. Their coaching staff was real great."
