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.
