Chris Evans has returned from his trip to Atlanta this week for his official visit to Georgia Tech. He has not reached a decision as of yet but the Yellow Jackets are among his final two teams.
“I had a good weekend,” Evans said. “It was a good weekend. I didn’t make any decisions, no sir, but I got to meet everybody; all the guys. I really enjoyed myself.”
Chris’ team host is another native of Alabama who Evans was already familiar with.
“My host was Jahi Word-Daniels, from Hoover,” Evans said. “He’s a cornerback; freshman.” Although Jahi played ball in Alabama last year, Chris never played against him. “He played with Hoover and they’re 6-A, but I met him this summer when he was just coming in, one of his first days as a freshman,” Evans said. “I was on just like a little unofficial visit and I got the chance to meet him this summer.”
Chris renewed some older acquaintances and met some new faces this weekend as well.
“I mostly hung out with guys from the team; Kenny Scott, cornerback, Jamal Lewis, cornerback,” Evans said. “Mike Johnson, he’s from Dallas County. I met him this summer too. I hung out with him. So I just hung out with some of the guys I was already familiar with and I hung out with some guys I didn’t know.”
Chris seemed to like the straightforward nature of the Tech coaching staff.
“They were real nice,” Evans said. “They were just telling me about the academic points about Georgia Tech and how I’d be a great fit; just telling me the facts basically. At Georgia Tech they’re not going to lie to you.”
For the Yellow Jackets, two spots are available for the running back position. Chris is a finalist for one of those two spots.
“They’ve offered five backs from various states and they’re going to take the first two that commit,” Evans said.
Knowing that some teams can fill up spots at anytime how does that play into Chris’ decision-making process?
“I can’t let that worry me about what somebody else is going to do,” Evans said. “I’ve just got to take care of myself and be comfortable with my decision. It will all work itself out. I’ve just got to sit down and think what’s going to be best for me in the long run as far as football and school and just see what the best place is.”
Chris has the same two schools as before for his finalist.
“That’s what I’m choosing from right now; UAB and Georgia Tech,” Evans said.
