"The only camp I was able to make it to this summer was Auburn," said Evans. "I got the top running back award over there."
Deontay believes he has the ability to change the game when he is at his best.
"I can run, hit and do anything you want me to do for you," said Evans.
This season #17 will get the chance to do a lot for the 2010 McComb Tigers. He is excited about his team's progress this fall.
"We have a lot of expectations for ourselves this year," said Deontay. "Last year we wasn't right, but this year we are ready.
"Coach Jones has us on the program and we are ready to play."
Evans has already been informed that Arkansas State will send their formal offer once September 1st arrives.
The talented running back is eager to begin the recruiting process and have his moment in the sun.
"I really want to go somewhere I can get some early playing time," said Deontay. "That's what I am looking for, so hopefully I can get it."
