Evans, who presumably will enroll at Virginia Tech next month, played two seasons at Trinity Valley. The 6’4”, 225-pound signal caller was outstanding this season, completing 62.4-percent of his passes for 3,164 yards and 38 touchdowns with only three interceptions in eight games. He added 414 yards rushing and four scores.
Missouri, California and Central Florida also offered Evans, who adds depth and experience to the Tech quarterback position. He’ll be a junior next season and is projected to be joined by senior Brenden Motley, sophomores Chris Durkin (who worked at tight end some last season) and Dwayne Lawson, and true freshman Joshua Jackson. Jackson plans on enrolling at Tech next month.
Jerod and his younger brother, Caleb Evans, are both at Tech this weekend on official visits. It is not known if Caleb, a senior quarterback prospect out of Bishop Dunne (Dallas, TX), has an offer from the Hokies at this point.
