"I've learned patience through his whole situation," said Evans, who next season will join Jonathan Orr, Brandon Williams and Darrin Charles (among others) to give the UW a strong corps of receivers.
Evans set the Big Ten record with 1,545 receiving yards on a school-record 75 catches as a junior in 2001. He caught a school record-tying nine touchdown passes and was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver, as well as a first-team All-American.

available next April has seen a dramatic fall off in talent.
