At last week’s NBPA Top 100 Camp, class of 2015 point guard Jawun Evans confirmed his list of finalists. The list is eight schools and includes Cincinnati, Clemson, Illinois, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, Texas, USC and Virginia Tech.
Evans has only visited two of the finalists – Clemson and Texas. He plans to visit more but has not scheduled any specific dates. When he will make his college choice is unclear, as he said he isn’t sure if he will sign in the fall or next spring.
Asked what he liked about Virginia Tech to include the Hokies in his final eight, Evans said: “Virginia Tech, they’ve been on me very hard. I really like Virginia Tech. We’re starting to build a good relationship.”
Evans, who transferred from Legacy Charter in South Carolina to Kimball High School (Dallas, TX) before his junior year, discussed what’s important to him in finding the right school.
“Academics, that’s a big thing. I want to go somewhere where I can get the help that I need and go somewhere where I can get my skill development up too,” Evans said.
Considered one of the top point guard prospects in his class, Evans is rated a 4-star by ESPN, Scout, Rivals and 247Sports. He showed well at the NBPA Top 100 Camp, where in eight games he averaged 8.8 points, 5 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals per contest. Evans had 40 assists to 14 turnovers on the week.
“It’s a great camp. A lot of younger people. A lot of older people. A great camp, skills-wise,” Evans said of the Top 100. “These kinds of camps I can really show what I can do at the point guard position.”
Buzz Williams and company are in hot pursuit of a point guard in this class. Evans and St. James (Hagerstown, MD) standout Justin Robinson are two of the top targets.
