Florida Junior Receiver Attracting Offers
Hollywood (FL) Chaminade wide receiver Curt Evans had a fine season in 2009, and is starting to attract recruiting attention from several top programs. Evans, 6-foot, 175-pounds, is currently sidelined with a foot injury, and was unable to try to make the roster for the South Florida Express 7on7 team, which will compete at South Florida in March in the Badger Sports Elite Skills Passing Tournament. "My junior year went really good, and we did good as a team too," Evans began. "I had 23 catches for over 600 yards, and 11 receiving touchdowns. I also had two punt returns for touchdowns. I've been timed at a 4.4 in the forty-yard dash, so my speed is my biggest strength." "I injured my foot during the season, but I played through it," he stated. "Once the season ended I went ahead and had surgery on it, and I'm just about ready to be full-go. It was just a minor procedure, no big deal, and I could be released to resume training next week." Evans' sterling play did not go unnoticed by college recruiters, and he has collected some impressive scholarship offers so far. He is also helped by carrying a 3.8 grade point average. "I've got a lot of schools interested in me right now," Evans explained. "I have offers from West Virginia, Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Tennessee and Boston College. I want to major in education, because I want to be able to help kids succeed in their lives." "I'm very interested in going to a school that is strong academically, more than strong on the football field," he stressed. "That means the most to me. Distance won't be a factor for me at all, and I'm just looking to find a great school where I can succeed in every area." Even though Evans has put together a great offer list, he is still hearing from a lot of schools that have not yet pulled the trigger on offering. "Alabama, Florida and Ohio State have been calling my coach about me," he explained. "I just talked with Florida last week, and I'm very interested in them. My coach (Tim Tyrell) is good friends with (Ohio State head coach) Jim Tressel, and I went to the Ohio State summer camp last year. It was nice being at Ohio State, and that was the first major camp I've ever been to. I spoke to the wide receiver coach (Darrell Hazell), and we also spoke to Coach Tressel. We are going back to Ohio State this summer for senior camp. I'm really hoping to be offered by Ohio State."
