Curt Evans talks decision
"It was late last night," the 5-11, 175 lb athlete said. "Boston had been my first choice, but I made the decision to choose Wake around midnight."
A Florida native, out of Chaminade Madonna in Hollywood, he noted distance from home as a major contributing factor, but not the only reason.
"Basically when I really thought about it, there were a lot of similarities between BC and Wake," Evans said of his choice. "I thought about distance, how I felt about the coaches, and how comfortable I was with the guys."
He also described this past weekend's visit as playing a major role in a push towards his final decision.
"This visit was totally different; seeing what North Carolina had to offer, and going around the campus," he explained. "I got home and was talking about it to my family."
He continued in comparing his two top choices, "I realized BC just didn't have that "umph" as when I was at Wake."
When asked who was most supportive of his decision, he responded, "My coach here. Coach Rodriguez had been big on Wake since day one, so he was really excited."
Evans also described his family as being enthusiastic about him becoming a Deac.
"My family is really excited," he said. "I have family in South Carolina, and I'm from Alabama, so they're happy they have the chance to see me play in college."
The athlete detailed Wake Coaches McCartney, Anderson, and Knorr as all "playing a huge part" in the choice.
Evans started training the day after his play-off game, but anticipates the hardest part of his first season of college football being, "Just the transition; they say it's a different speed. But speed won't be the biggest thing, school probably will, going from high school to a college setting."
With his decision settled, Evans is "excited to start the college life, and a new chapter."
