Just Win Baby!

"I'm probably going to visit Stanford for the Oregon game (Sept. 22)," Quinn Evans said. "Obviously, I love the academics, but I also like the coaches a lot too. I know coach Jim Harbaugh has gotten a lot of press this summer and created some controversy, but he's a very outgoing and passionate guy. He has lots of energy and fire and just wants to win..."

Quinn Evans, the 5-foot-10, 170-pound, three-star cornerback from Basha High School in Chandler, Ariz., wasn't able to attend any camps during the summer due to a minor right ankle sprain - which he says is 100 percent now.

Basha High School has been in session for about a month now and they play their first game on Aug. 31 against Salpointe in Tucson.

Evans has offers from Stanford and Northwestern and says the Cardinal remain his top choice over the Wildcats, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Arizona State.

"I'm probably going to visit Stanford for the Oregon game (Sept. 22)," he said. "Obviously, I love the academics, but I also like the coaches a lot too. I know coach Jim Harbaugh has gotten a lot of press this summer and created some controversy, but he's a very outgoing and passionate guy. He has lots of energy and fire and just wants to win."

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 have lot of family ties to the Big Ten and have always thought about how amazing it would be to play there.

"Ohio State is recruiting me a lot and said they really want to see about three of my games this season," he said. "I was gonna go to their camp, but couldn't make it because of my ankle so they just want to see some tape on me."

Evans said the local favorite, Arizona State, is trying to keep him in-state even though Dennis Erickson hasn't offered yet. "They used to text me all the time, but now (with the new text message ban in effect) it's just emails," Quinn said. "They seem like nice guys and it's an up-and-coming program.

"I'll decide whenever I'm comfortable," he said. "I want to make sure I go where I can play and make an impact."

He reports a 3.7 core GPA and a 1570 SAT (three parts).
