JUCO LB Adds First

Former Phoenix Christian LB, Byron Evans, now at Glendale CC adds first D1 offer

Junior college is for second chances at Glendale (Ariz.) Community College linebacker Byron Evans is taking full advantage.

On Monday he told 24-7Football.com that he received his first division-one scholarship offer.

"I talked to Coach Thompson from NAU and he offered me" Evans says. "He wants me to get up there on an official visit."

Evans, a non-qualifier out of Phoenix Christian High School, says he has gotten serious with his studies. "I have above a 3.5 grade-point-average now."

Old Dominion and South Dakota State have also expressed interest in the 6-foot-1, 215 pounder.

Evans' father, also named Byron Evans, was an All-Pro linebacker with the Eagles.

The younger Evans recorded 14 tackles in Glendale's loss to Eastern Arizona last Saturday.
