Evans 'Loved Everything' on Texas Tech Visit

Dallas Hillcrest athlete Arico Evans recaps his visit to Texas Tech this weekend

Dallas Hillcrest athlete Arico Evans visited Texas Tech this weekend and said it helped the Red Raiders chances for his decision on National Signing Day.

The Kansas commit said he is still considering three additional schools all of which he will visit this month. Still in the running for this 6-foot-2 and 190 pound athlete is Texas Tech, TCU, and Arkansas.

Evans said overall his visit was very good and he was impressed by the campus and facilities.

“It was beautiful,” Evans said. “I loved everything about it.”

He said his favorite part was getting to bond with other recruits and the coaches.

“I went bowling and played laser tag with the coaches and got closer with the coaches,” Evans said.

He added that the coaches were great and really meant business during his visit.

“He [Kingsbury] wants to make sure you take care of business in school and on the field,” Evans said. “They want you to be successful whether your playing football or not.”

As for his role on the team, Evans said it could go either way. The 2014 all-district safety said he could play wide receiver but would rather play on defense as a safety or corner.

Evans added the visit impacted his recruitment quite a bit. He said his standing with Kansas is the same but he will continue to visit TCU and Arkansas this month and make his decision on Feb. 4th.

“It helped Tech a lot actually,” Evans said. “I have a big decision to make on National Signing Day.”
