As mentioned previously Leomont Evans Jr. is the son of the former Clemson and Washington Redskins safety with the same name. The younger Evans is doing his best to blaze his own path to the next level for the Blythewood Bengals. The 5'11 172 pound ballhawk talked at length with us about his junior season, recruitment, and plans for the near future.
The 2015 prospect talked about his best game this year for the Bengals.
"My best game was the game against South Pointe. I had 12 tackles, 1 pass break up, and 3 fumble recoveries. It was memorable because I broke the school record for most fumble recoveries in a game. It was my first time ever playing in the secondary and I started."
Right now Evans says his awareness and speed are his biggest strengths. He says that his biggest plan is to continue to improve his strength to try and get better for next season.
Last season as a junior Evans had 71 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, 5 pass break ups, 2 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, and 3 fumble recoveries.
Looking ahead to next season Evans talked about what the goals are for the Bengals as a team and himself on a personal level.
"As a team to get everyone on the same page working for the same things. On a personal level is to help better those around me to achieve that goal."
A number of schools have made inquiries about Evans and he shared that list with us as well as about his lone visit thus far.
"When I visited Georgia it was really eye opening to what college football has to offer."
Right now Evans is open to all schools that want to recruit him but he informed us that he'd like to hear more from Georgia as well as his father's alma mater, Clemson.
Evans closed with a statement that he wanted all potential college coaches to know about him as a prospective student-athlete.
"I give 100% effort 24/7 on and off the field. I have a 3.1 GPA right now."
