UCLA in Top 5 for Evans

Auburn (Ala.) linebacker Rashaan Evans has unveiled his top five, which puts the Bruins second to Georgia on his list...

Over 30 schools have offered Rashaan Evans, the Scout 100 prospect out of Auburn, Ala. and he now is ready to reveal his top five in order.

"Georgia is first, UCLA is second, Tennessee is third, Florida State is fourth, and Auburn, and fifth," Evans told Scout Wednesday night. "That is my top five for now and that is the order."

Evans will continue to look at his options, talk with the coaches recruiting him, and he could update his list again before his senior season begins in August.

For now, all schools are chasing Mark Richt's Georgia Bulldogs.

That may surprise some, but the 6-foot-3, 220 pound rush end feels good about his top school.

"I have been to Georgia twice and that second time I went there was great. I just connected with the coaches, I kind of bonded with them. Mark Richt, my dad, and myself had a long talk and it was great. I have stayed in contact with Todd Grantham, I love their scheme, and I like how they play.

"Me and my parents have been going down the list of schools the last few weeks and Georgia just kept coming up. I feel a very good connection with Georgia."

UGA may be in the lead now and the Bruins, Vols, Seminoles, and Tigers currently follow, but this list is nowhere near final.

"I would say I am definitely going to take an official visit to Georgia, but this list is probably going to change again," said the No. 83 overall prospect in the country. "I could visit UCLA, Tennessee, and the rest of the top five too, but I am not sure yet."

Evans plans to take his official visits before he makes his decision.

He could play rush end or outside linebacker on the next level depending on the scheme.
