2019 QB Ty Evans (6-2 185) of Monument, CO earned player of the year honors in his state after passing for 3627 yards and 41 touchdowns and winning a state championship. He committed to Arkansas in July but decommitted in November and is now looking around. USC is one of his schools of interest and he’s planning a visit to see the Gamecocks up close in January.
“I’ve watched a lot of Gamecock games and I love the offense but it will be easier to say (about his interest) after I see the school and get to really talk to the coaches,” Evans said. “I am absolutely looking at South Carolina seriously. I was talking to Coach Roper every week.”
With Roper gone, Evans said he’s been in touch with Logan Hall, the Gamecocks assistant director of player personnel.
Evans said regarding his style of play, he can run some when necessary but prefers to hang in the pocket and make plays down the field.
“I would say I’m a gunslinger,” Evans said. “I’ll stay in the pocket but when I get rushed out I can make throws on the run just as well and make plays.”
Evans said in January, along with USC, he also plans to visit NC State and North Carolina. He has offers from USC, Arkansas, NC State, Colorado, Colorado State, Kansas State and Northwestern.
