Bishop Dunne (Dallas, TX) senior quarterback Caleb Evans traveled to Virginia Tech this past weekend for an official visit. The 6’3”, 190-pound signal caller enjoyed the experience; however, as of now he does not have a scholarship offer from new Hokies head coach Justin Fuente.
“Well [Fuente] is interested, but there is a quarterback in my class (2016) already committed to VT so he’s honoring that commitment,” Caleb wrote in a Twitter direct message. The quarterback he is referring to is Saline (MI) senior Joshua Jackson, who plans on enrolling at Tech next month.
Caleb’s older brother, Jerod, was also in Blacksburg on an official visit, and he received and accepted a scholarship offer from Coach Fuente over the weekend. If an opportunity does arise at Tech – Caleb isn’t sure where Virginia Tech’s recruitment will go from here – would Jerod’s commitment help sway the younger Evans?
“I always considered playing wherever he plays to learn behind him, but at the end of the day I need to be somewhere I feel most comfortable,” Caleb wrote.
“I would strongly consider [Virginia Tech] because it’s a great place.”
Evans called the environment at Virginia Tech “great” and added that it is “family oriented.”
Of Fuente, Evans wrote: “He’s a good coach and has a very good system.”
Stephen F. Austin has extended a scholarship offer to Evans, who, in his first full season as the team’s starting quarterback, accounted for 56 touchdowns (40 passing, 16 rushing) and led Bishop Dunne to a 12-1 record. LockerTalkSports.com called Evans a “master of decision making” in this report.
Central Florida, Ohio and Purdue have also expressed interest.
