Arkansas gets com­mit­ment for 2019 class

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - SCOREBOARD - — Dud­ley Daw­son

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.
