Evans did not publicly sign during the Early Signing Period, but plans to early enroll, meaning his destination will be known before National Signing Day in February. He is scheduled to reveal his commitment on Jan. 2. Experts believe Evans’ recruitment is down to Georgia and LSU with Texas A&M a long-shot and distant third. The 247Sports Crystal Ball is trending toward Georgia.
Evans is rated the No. 1 running back, No. 1 recruit out of Texas and No. 14 prospect overall in the class according to the Composite.
