Practice Report: Dulles Safety Sheroid Evans

Dulles High is home to one of the top 2011 prospects in the state of Texas. Safety Sheroid Evans is already receiving national recruiting interest due to an elite combination of size, speed, quickness and physicality. Burnt Orange Beat visited Monday's Dulles football practice to provide this scouting report and photo gallery.

The top defensive backs in the class of 2011 began emerging during the 2008 season and in the spring. Sheroid Evans is in the conversation for top secondary prospect. At 6-1, 185 with 4.37 speed, quickness and the liking for contact, the junior has become a target for programs from coast to coast.

Evans not only excels on the football field, but is also one of the top sprinters in the state qualifying for the 5A state meet and competing nationally in summer track.

Evans is receiving heavy interest from Texas (camped in June), Oklahoma, Florida, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, LSU, Oklahoma State, Arkansas and Michigan among others.

At this point, the Longhorns appear to be the team to beat. Evans intends to stay close to home giving the in-state programs and top regional programs a huge leg up in his recruitment.

Sheroid Evans Scouting Report

Evans is fast, fast, fast with the ability to cover a ton of ground. In drill work, the junior showed very impressive range as well as hands and some pop. Evans plays the game with physical mentality.

He showed the ability to sink his hips and change direction pretty good. Is faster than quick, but that's not to say he doesn't have quickness.

Evans will play left safety, running back, receiver and return kicks this year for the Vikings.
