Evans Makes the Flip
TCU had a big day on the recruiting front on Sunday as the Frogs added two commitments to their 2015 class. First was a commitment from Louisiana speedster Kavontae Turpin, who chose the Frogs over Texas Tech among others. Shortly after Turpin committed, HornedFrogBlitz.com received confirmation that the Frogs had added their second commitment of the day when Dallas Hillcrest defensive back Arico Evans gave his commitment to the staff while on his official visit to TCU. Evans, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect, was originally committed to Kansas. He visited Texas Tech last week and had planned on visiting Arkansas on January 30th. Evans admitted that he had been thinking of committing to the Frogs since this week after receiving an in-home visit from TCU head coach Gary Patterson. The rising prospect chose the Frogs for a chance to play close to home and for the family feel. “My mom came and they told her that they would take care of me,” Evans said. “She’s happy and fired up. She was fired up as the coaches were.” Another factor that was key in landing Evans was the fact Patterson spent time recruiting him and because he’s a defensive minded coach. Evans said he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to learn from a defensive minded coach. “It was a huge impact because when the head coach wants you and he’s going to be your coach, that’s a great opportunity,” Evans said. “You can’t miss that opportunity.” Evans says he’s happy with his decision and hopes to help continue what the Frogs were able to accomplish in 2014. “I’m really happy for that because joining a program that’s winning, I want to continue to build that program and win a championship my freshman year,” he said.
