The rollercoaster of Galena Park North Shore’s 5-star running back Zach Evans’ recruitment is not close to being over, even with National Signing Day looming.
I’m sure many people have their eyes on Evans making a move, but that won’t be happening tomorrow.
After recently being knocked out of the No. 1 spot in his position in the 2020 recruiting class, Evans has announced that he will not “rush my decision” ahead of National Signing Day in an interview with FanRunRadio.com’s Trey Wallace.
Evans’ plan is to wait until all of his official visits are through before committing. He has one more official visit next month.
After signing a letter of intent with Georgia in December, Evans has since been released with no restrictions, reopening his recruitment without giving any hints as to where he has his hopes set for his future in the sport.
“There are a lot of schools that reach out to me that haven’ been recruiting me and want to start,” Evans told Wallace. “I’m just trying to keep it all in perspective and make the right decision.”
According to a 247sports.com composite ranking, Evans is warm on Tennessee, Texas A&M, and Ole Miss. LSU seems to have moved on from recruiting Evans amid all the controversy surrounding his benching at the state title game and constant runaround on his intentions.
Despite Evans’ insistence on not wanting to rush the process, it’s also the case that Evans isn’t eligible to sign another letter of intent tomorrow per NCAA rules since he already signed one in December for Georgia. NCAA rules state, “If a student-athlete signs a National Letter of Intent with one school but attends a different school, he or she loses one full year of eligibility and must complete a full academic year at the new school before being eligible to compete.”
Evans visited Tennessee and Ole Miss in January, while LSU and Texas A&M both received official visits during the season.
It seems as though Evans is looking towards March visits once the dead period ends.
Regardless, the recruitment of Evans is far from over.
