Sooners get another Evans pledge
By Bob Przybylo
One Evans is nice. Two are even better. Class of 2014 three-star linebacker Tay Evans (Allen, Texas/Allen) committed to Oklahoma last week on an unofficial visit. His younger brother did the same Wednesday.
Bobby Evans, a Class of 2015 tight end, pledged to the Sooners while both brothers were on an unofficial visit to campus.
Tay Evans couldn’t contain his excitement, letting the world know on Twitter his younger brother is going to follow him to Norman. Bobby later confirmed to SoonerNation the tweet was accurate.
Bobby Evans, who is 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, was also hearing from Baylor and attended Texas’ junior day in the winter.
Bobby Evans is the second commit for OU’s 2015 class, joining offensive guard Joshua Wariboko (Oklahoma City/Casady), who pledged two weeks ago.
It’s only natural for the Evans brothers to end up as Sooners. Their father, Bobby Sr., played basketball for OU. And though the initial interest wasn’t as strong by the Sooners for either one of them compared to some other schools, it became clear that OU was the school to beat when it did start to show interest.
The Sooners' raid of Allen High might not be done, either, as OU still has its targets set on three-star linebacker Christian Sam.
