Texas A&M is back up to being the No. 5 rated class in the nation again, thanks to the pickup of JUCO defensive back Justin Evans.
Evans is the Aggies’ ninth commitment of the 2015 class, and he plays for Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. He is 6-foot-0, 185 pounds and is originally from Wiggins (Miss.). He held offers from Ole Miss, Auburn, Georgia, Nebraska and Baylor.
“It’s awesome, playing in the SEC has been my dream ever since I was a little boy, and now I have a chance to fulfill my dream,” Evans told Saturday Down South after committing. “All the glory goes to my almighty Lord and Savior. They just want me to come in, work hard and do what I do best.”
Evans said he broke the news to head coach Kevin Sumlin, who promptly–and cryptically–posted “#YESSIR!” on his Twitter account. Sumlin has done that for every commitment over the years. Since he can’t comment publicly about a commitment, this is way of acknowledging the good news. Evans loved it.
As a freshman in junior college, he had 47 tackles, 7 passes broken up, 5 INTs and also a defensive touchdown. He is an absolute playmaker. He will graduate in December and will have three years to complete his final two seasons of eligibility.
