Five from Friday: Keep an eye on Evans 

August, 27, 2012
Five things I learned from watching an eight-team scrimmage at Tulsa (Okla.) Union on Friday night (with a hat tip to DawgNation's Kipp Adams for the idea).

1. It certainly appears Oklahoma commit Dalton Rodriguez (Tulsa, Okla./Union) is going to stay at defensive end for his senior season. Rodriguez has been recruited by OU offensive tackles coach Bruce Kittle and originally looked like he was a tackle commit. He could still end up being an offensive tackle at the next level, but his body type seems more suited for defensive end. Rodriguez, a three-star prospect, didn’t take a snap at offensive tackle the entire night.

2. Bentonville, Ark., is not hurting at running back. Senior Tearris Wallace has offers from Memphis and Air Force and strong interest from Tennessee and Vanderbilt. But on this night, sophomore Dylan Smith scored two touchdowns in the 17-15 scrimmage win against Tulsa Union. Smith, who is 5-foot-9 and 190 pounds, looked comfortable on the big stage. Wallace suffered a minor hamstring injury during the scrimmage, which is why Smith got the call. Had it been a regular-season game, Wallace said he would have kept playing.
