UA Game Update: Rashaan Evans

ORLANDO, Fla. - Big official visits are coming up for five-star Rashaan Evans and you can get the latest here...

Rashaan Evans is planing to go about business as usual this week and being named an All-American is an honor to him, but it will not change him.

"I am still going to work hard and go out on the field with something to prove this week," said Evans. "It feels great to be an All-American, but there are still things to work on and I will be trying to get better this week."

He had a good day one. Scout named him a top five defensive performer for his squad.

The 6-foot-3, 220 pound Auburn, Ala. native will keep working this week and then turn his focus over to recruiting in January.

"Oh yeah, January will be big for me. I am probably going to visit Alabama or Auburn on January 17, then Georgia on the 24th, so it will be busy.

"I have been out to UCLA and I liked it out there a lot, so these official visits are very important to me. I will get an idea of what school I want to be at the next four years during the visits."

The UGA visit is set and he is not sure about Alabama or Auburn yet the weekend before. He knows he has seen Auburn enough to know what AU is all about.

"I am not real sure I have to take an official visit to Auburn," said Evans. "I have seen it all, I know the coaches well, and I have not decided on an Auburn official visit yet. I could take one, but I just don't know yet."

Ole Miss has been in the picture a little, but it looks like the Rebels are currently on the outside looking in.

"I think I am down to four schools now - Auburn, UCLA, Georgia, and Alabama. I feel good about those schools."

At this time, not one has the lead.

"All schools are equal for me now. I think about different schools all the time, so I cannot say I give anyone the edge now. I know it will be a tough decision for me."

The five-star outside linebacker will likely commit close to signing day, but he is not ruling out a spontaneous decision during a visit.

"I have always said if I feel like I am ready, then I will go ahead with it. I still feel that way. If I am on a visit somewhere and I know for sure that is the school for me, then I will go ahead and commit."
