Keevan Evans, a wide receiver from Abilene (Texas) High School, confirmed on Thursday that he has committed to the University of Tulsa football program.
Recruited also by Texas Tech and Louisiana Tech, Evans says he also may be used as a return specialist at TU.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Evans says he is on course to graduate in December and plans to enroll at TU during the semester break. If that happens, he would be involved in the Golden Hurricane's spring practice.
“I want to get to TU early and get on the field early,” Evans said. “There’s no doubt about it – I will graduate early. I’ve got plenty of credits. I will get it done.”
Evans, who said he was recruited primarily by Golden Hurricane offensive coordinator Greg Peterson, is the only Texan and the second wide receiver on TU’s 2013 commitment list. Two weeks ago, Union High School receiver Khalid Kornegay committed to TU.
Verbal commitments are not binding. Recruits may sign national letters of intent in February.
Previously committing to the Golden Hurricane were C.J. Gooden, a linebacker from Ashdown, Ark.; Rob Boyd, an offensive lineman from Vian; Ben Oberste, a Sallisaw High School quarterback who may be played at a different position in college; linebacker Devin Rolan of McAlester High School; Mountain Vista (Colo.) High School quarterback Ryan Rubley; and Union’s Chris Hall, a fullback and wide receiver.
