Quinn Evans, the 5-foot-9.5, 170-pound, three-star cornerback from Basha High School in Chandler, Ariz., still has offers from Stanford and Northwestern, but no new programs have jumped on board. Evans says that's alright with him.
"If Stanford and Northwestern end up being the only offers I get, it'll still be great," Evans. "They are both great schools and I can't make a bad decision with either of them."
Evans, ranked the No. 73 cornerback in the country by Scout.com, still favors the Cardinal slightly over Northwestern, Ohio State, Arizona State and Wisconsin. "After our game this week, I'm sending my tape to Ohio State," he said. "They want to see how my feet are and how I move and transition in and out of the back pedal."
He says the Buckeyes and Sun Devils are still recruiting him, but the Badgers are not. "I like Arizona State because it's close to home and I know them all pretty well," said Evans, who is credited with 4.4 forty speed. "I talk with them regularly."
Evans has an official visit scheduled to Stanford this weekend (Sept. 22), although he may reschedule. "I need to call the coaches and see," he said. "I don't have my tickets or anything ready yet, so I've got to talk to the coaches about that. I may reschedule it for October."
He says the Cardinal are recruiting him the hardest. "They talk with me about their depth chart and say that I'd be able to make an impact," Evans said. "They're going to be losing a few cornerbacks next year, so they say that I'll have a good opportunity to play early. They also really stress the academic opportunities that a Stanford degree provides. Academics are important to me."
Evans attended the Stanford/UCLA game and his cousin (freshman defensive back Glenn Love) plays for the Bruins. "That was a pretty good game and I think Stanford has definitely improved from last year," Evans said. "They came out hard against UCLA and didn't give up. They kept it really close in the first half before UCLA ran away with it. Coach Jim Harbaugh really has them playing hard and I think they'll turn it around."
Basha High School is 3-0, but they've only played two games because one victory was a forfeit. Evans has 12 tackles and approximately 70 yard rushing.
He reports a 3.7 core GPA and a 1570 SAT (three parts).
