Will Oklahoma Commit Still Come?

The defensive lineman from Oklahoma, <b>Chadd Evans</b>, who verbally committed to UCLA at the beginning of December, talks about how he feels now, and his elite-level wide receiver teammate...

Chadd Evans, 6-3, 254, 4.8, Tulsa (Okla.) Washington, committed to UCLA just over a week ago on December 2nd. Evans said he spoke with defensive line coach Don Johnson again this past Monday and reiterated his commitment to the Bruins.


Johnson discussed the Bob Toledo firing with Evans and his mom, Jackie. "Coach Johnson said everything is going to be all right. That hopefully the assistants will be able to stay on, or at least a few of them will get a position with the new head coach."


Evans has never been to UCLA, and he has never met Toledo. "When I first made my choice to commit to UCLA to me it wasn't made just on the basis that coach Toledo was the head coach. It was based on me wanting to be a Bruin. Nothing has changed. I'm not going anywhere. I am still going to trip to UCLA on the weekend of January 10th. Hopefully, they can get a good guy in by then."


Not only is Evans committed to UCLA, he is now trying to recruit one of the top wide receivers in the country to join him. His teammate is TheInsiders #5 wide receiver prospect, Robert Meachem, 6-2, 202, 4.28. "We talk daily. I try to let him know how good it would it feel for him and me to wear that UCLA gold and blue. He is still considering UCLA very much. Nothing is set yet; we're trying to get our visits set for the same weekend in January. My visit date could end up changing, or his could end up being on the same weekend that mine is scheduled on."


Washington completed its season last weekend playing in the Oklahoma 5A division state championship game. "We had a pretty rough game. We lost by three points, but somebody had to lose." The Hornets lost to Guthrie 16-13 ending the season at 13-1. Evens completed his senior season with 113 tackles and 16 sacks. As a junior, Evans had 84 solo tackles, 40 assists and 10 sacks.
