Arkansas gets commitment for 2019 class
Arkansas picked up its first verbal commitment of the 2019 recruiting class Tuesday when Monument (Colo.) Palmer Ridge quarterback Ty Evans pledged to be a Razorback.
Evans, 6-2, 185 pounds, is rated a consensus four-star prospect by the major recruiting services, and his family visited Fayetteville and other parts of Northwest Arkansas the past few days.
He chose the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville over scholarship offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Kansas State and Northwestern. He also drew interest from Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Washington and others.
“There were a couple of other schools that said if I came to their school and visited that they would offer me, but I felt great about Arkansas,” Evans said. “But to be honest, as soon as I came to Arkansas the first time, I knew this was where I wanted to go.
“I came down here and the atmosphere was just perfect for me, and since I have been offered by Arkansas, the fans have been great. You can tell they are a bunch of football-crazy people, and I love that about them. That is one of the most attractive things about the university.”
Evans, who earlier visited Arkansas on June 12-13, is coming off a huge sophomore season during which he threw for 3,150 yards and 31 touchdowns with just 5 interceptions.
