Recruiting expert reveals why 5-star RB Zach Evans has possibly delayed announcement of his signing
One of the biggest mysteries of this recruiting cycle has been 5-star RB Zachary Evans, the top running back in the 2020 class.
He has reportedly committed and signed his letter of intent, but he’s yet to announce where he’ll be playing in 2020.
Per 247Sports expert Bobby Burton, there’s an explanation for the confusion. Burton tweeted that Evans has signed with Georgia, but the Bulldogs have yet to submit his letter of intent:
I’m told that RB Zach Evans signed with UGa in early signing period but #Dawgs elected not to submit his LOI.

Per the 247Sports composite rankings, Evans is the No. 1 running back in the class of 2020, the No. 1 overall recruit from the state of Texas and the No. 14 overall prospect in the 2020 class.
Evans was recently sent home from his team ahead of the Texas state championship. He offered an apology during the recent Under Armour All-America Game.
