40 Acres Forecast: Sheroid Evans

We continue our look at scholarship players on Texas' 2015 roster with CB Sheroid Evans.

Sheroid Evans




6-foot-2/180 pounds

High School:

Sugarland, Texas/Fort Bend Dulles




2014 Review

Evans did not see playing time as he was still recovering from a knee injury suffered in 2013 and ended up serving a redshirt season.


2015 Preview

Just when it looked like Evans had fully recovered from his ACL tear, which occurred in October of 2013, he went down with a non-contact knee injury early in spring practice.

HornsDigest later confirmed that the knee injury would keep him out for the entire 2015 season.


HD Projection

We’ve reported on HD for a while now that Evans will try to work his way back from this injury and return to the team next season. Whether you are a Texas fan or not you simply have to root for this guy.

He arrived on campus all the way back in 2011 and has only played in 27 career games as a Longhorn.

If he can return to full health he’d give the Longhorns one of the fastest cornerbacks in the Big 12 who has ideal size and great playmaking ability.

Here’s to a speedy recovery Evans. The entire football community is pulling for you.

At the very least you’ll get to see his dope fashion sense on the sidelines this fall.


How he ended up on the 40 Acres

Evans committed to Texas immediately after Mack Brown offered him in Feb. 2010, joining Quandre Diggs, Leroy Scott and Mykkele Thompson as one of the best DB classes in the country.

At the time Evans had the nation’s fastest 200-meter dash (20.82) and fourth-fastest 100-meter dash (10.39) in 2010.
