"I really like Stanford a lot," Evans said. "I like the area a lot and the weather there is perfect. I love all the trees…we don't have a lot of trees in Arizona.
"I also like coach Jim Harbaugh a lot. He's a good guy and he's new, so he's real fired-up and excited about helping them turn it around. I love how competitive he is and what a hard worker he is."
Despite the Sun Devils being only 25 minutes from his house, Evans says that distance won't be a factor.
His dad, Dave Evans, was a two-time All-American wrestler at Wisconsin and his mom was a cheerleader for the Badgers. "I really like the tradition of the Big Ten and I grew up following Wisconsin," Evans said. "I also don't mind the weather because I used to live in Detroit. I really want to go up there and see what it's like.
"I want a place with great football and academics," Evans said. "I want to fit in with the coaches and play for a team that is really driven to win. I'm willing to wait before I commit. I don't want to rush into it."
Evans finished his junior season with 64 tackles, three tackles and one interception. He benches 255 pounds, squats 385 and has a 36-inch vertical jump.
"I have good field speed and I'm tough off the line," Evans said. "I have a real good jam and I'm a good cover corner. I play very physical, but I need to improve my back-peddle and footwork."
He reports a 3.7 core GPA and a 1570 SAT.
