Former Wings Coach Discusses Tyreke Evans

An update on the status of Tyreke Evans and his recruiting ...

American Christian head coach Tony Bergeron wanted it to be clear there is no legal issues regarding Tyreke Evans. Everything is over and has been taken care of.

So now Tyreke is back to concentrating on his future college decision. He simply never wavered off of his decision at hand. Bergeron, the former Wings Academy head coach (New York), spoke to us about this terrific and future pro prospect.

Some people might think that Tyreke's teammate Lamont Jones decision to pull out of his earlier commitment to Louisville would somehow impact Tyreke. But that is not the case, according to Bergeron. Tyreke still has Louisville on his short list along with Texas.

Coach Bergeron told us that Tyreke really likes Coach John Calipari and is very comfortable with their system because it is similar to what he runs at American Christian.

Villanova has made a strong push in the recruitment of Tyreke too. Coach Jay Wright is one of the better recruiters in going into a recruit's house. So Tyreke is very interested in them as well, according to Bergeron.

The time is coming soon. April seems to be the date maybe right before the McDonald's All American game, according to Bergeron.
