Newton, 6-4, 270
Evans returns for his senior year and one of a handful of players from Newton that coach Zach Grady thinks will get major college interest this fall. Evans certainly looks the part, standing 6-foot-4 and weighs 270 pounds. Evans was an Elite 11 player for the Newton County Appeal last year.
“He is a big kid and a Division I prospect,” Grady said. “He just has to get in front of more people. If you are a football coach, you don’t walk by him and not like him. He has all of the God-God-given skills and works tremendously hard. He just has to get in front of more scouts. He’s the type of kid that could go to the right place and end up really turning into something. I think he’s got NFL type talent.”
Grady said Evans has already been offered by East Central and thinks that he will certainly get more interest if he has a good season.
