TCU in Good Shape with Evans

With TCU reaching in to more states in the South, the Frogs find themselves on some elite player's lists these days.

While TCU hones in on their top in state targets, they haven't lost sight of the out of state prospects on their list either. One such player is Auburn, Alabama's Rashaan Evans. The 6'3" 217 pound defender can play either outside linebacker or defensive end and he's ready to put on a show in 2013.

"It's been going pretty good" said Evans. "I'm up to 28 offers now I think (laughing), it's going so good, I can't even explain it to you."

You can't blame a guy for being so happy. Not every player has the honor of having nearly 30 D-1 schools fighting for his signing day signature, but that's where Evans finds himself.

With scholarships extended from programs such as Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Notre Dame, TCU, USC and more, it's rather evident that he is living a charmed life.

"I guess it's really going to come down to the visits" said Evans. "Once I choose where I'm going to take my visits, then that's how I'll narrow it down."

When caught up with Evans last, TCU was in his top 4. After talking with him this evening, it looks like TCU is in just as good of shape, if not better with the hiring of Curtis Luper to TCU.

"TCU is definitely a school that I'm interested in" said Evans. "Luper (Cam) is over here in my ear every day and now his dad is coaching at TCU so pretty much I hear about TCU every day."

"With Cam going there and hearing everything about TCU like I do, I'm definitely interested; I'm definitely considering TCU."

Evans went on to describe what really stood out to him about TCU's play on the field in 2012.

"When you see younger guys playing at a level like they did last year, it gets me excited a little bit" he said. "I know if I went there, I would have a chance to get on the field pretty quick."

So just how big of an impact has all the chatter about the Horned Frogs had on Evans? To hear him tell it, he's beyond intrigued.

"They'll definitely be one of my five visits" he said. "I really want to take a few visits this summer because I want to make my decision sometime this season, so this summer is going to be hot for me."

With TCU in the thick of the race, this could get really interesting. With the Frogs slugging it out with the heavyweights of college football more and more on the recruiting trail, these recruiting battles will continue to keep fans on the edge of their seats.
