5-star running back Zach Evans makes his college decision
One of the craziest recruitments in recent history has finally come to an end as five-star running back Zach Evans has finally made his decision.
The No. 2 running back in the nation for the 2020 recruiting cycle won’t be playing at Georgia, Florida, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas A&M, or even Texas — Evans will play his college football for Gary Patterson at TCU according to Jeremy Clark of 247Sports.
Clark is reporting that Evans has not only signed a financial aid agreement with TCU, but he’s also attended an online class on Monday.
This news comes after the high school All-American signed with Georgia but was released from his letter of intent only to be courted by Florida, Ole Miss and Tennessee this spring. Evans did not get to visit schools this spring due to the coronavirus.
Evans is rated as the nation’s No. 16 overall prospect, the No. 2 running back and the No. 1 overall prospect from Texas in the 2020 recruiting cycle by 247Sports Composite Rankings. He was the highest-rated unsigned prospect in the nation for the 2020 recruiting cycle heading into the weekend and will be eligible to play immediately for TCU next season.
During his appearance at the 2020 Under Armour All-American Game, Evans made an emotional public apology for his previous actions, while he didn’t specifically note what exactly had occurred or which coaches he was issuing his comments to during the game.
