Wide receiver J.J. Evans is a four-star prospect that has had top programs in the country hoping to land his commitment. Now, it looks as though he has made his decision.
On Sunday, Evans took to Twitter to announce that he was committing to the Auburn Tigers. The announcement came with a note, thanking the members of his family and inner circle who helped him make the decision.
247Sports rates Evans as the No. 332 prospect in the country. He is rated the No. 64 wide receiver in the country, and the No. 16 prospect from the state of Alabama.
Landing Evans is a big get for Auburn, as many of the top prospects in the state of Alabama have already committed to their arch-rival, the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Evans had been weighing offers from just about every SEC team, Alabama included, as well as a good number of NFL wide receiver factories such as USC, Georgia Tech, and Clemson.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound wide receiver joins an Auburn recruiting class that is rated No. 12 in the country and No. 5 in the SEC by 247Sports.
Evans makes four four-star recruits that Guz Malzahn and company have added to the Class of 2020. The team has seven commitments so far.
In addition to Evans, the Tigers have landed four-star wide receiver Kobe Hudson, linebacker Demouy Kennedy, and offensive tackle Avery Jernigan.
