Quinn Evans, the 5-foot-10, 170-pound three-star cornerback from Basha High School in Chandler, Ariz., has scholarship offers from Stanford and Northwestern, and still favors the Cardinal slightly over Northwestern, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Arizona State.
"Coach Jim Harbaugh seems real fired up and exciting," Evans said. "He's driven to win and seems like a hard worker and the type of guy who can help them turn it around."
Evans will be visiting Palo Alto again in August. He does not have any official visits scheduled yet.
"I'm gonna take my time," he said. "I have to feel real comfortable with all the coaches and I want a school with great academics. I'll take my visits and see how I bond with all the coaches and players."
The only camp that Evans attended was Arizona State and although he lives in Arizona, he says that despite not having an offer from Ohio State, that the Buckeyes are recruiting him the hardest. "They said they are gonna take one or two corners this year and said they'll watch me closely during the season," Evans said. "Even though they haven't offered me yet, they seem very interested."
Evans grew up following Wisconsin since both his parents went there and he lived in Detroit, Mich., as well.
"I like the Midwest and Northwestern seems like an up-and-coming program," he said. "With their new coach (Pat Fitzgerald), it seems really exciting there. He's really good. I also like their academics."
He reports a 3.7 core GPA and a 1570 SAT.
