Cornerback/running back Quinn Evans (5-10, 175, 4.5) from Chandler (Ariz.) Basha has decided where he's going to continue his education and his athletic career.
"I'm going ahead and commit to Stanford," Evans said. "I felt comfortable there.
"I took my official visit to Stanford when they played Oregon and I took an unofficial visit there in August," Evans said. "The location of Stanford is perfect.
"The weather is always nice and it is close enough to home where my parents will get to see a lot of my games," Evans said. "Stanford is in the Pac 10 and we will be playing in Arizona once a year.
"It really was between Stanford and Northwestern," Evans said. "Northwestern is a great university and Coach Pat Fitzgerald is a great guy, but it really came down to the ease my parents could come to the games.
"Both schools are really great schools academically."
The Cardinal will be getting a player who first-team all-region on both sides of the ball as a running back and cornerback. He was a second-team all-state as a cornerback.
From his cornerback position, Evans was avoided like the plague. He ended up with 55 tackles, nine deflected passes and one interception.
As a running back, Evans rushed for 930 yards and scored 15 touchdowns.
Evans earned all-area honor as a junior after racking up 64 tackles, nine pass deflections, three sacks and one interception.
Evans has outstanding bloodlines. His father, Dave Evans, was a two-time All-American wrestler for Wisconsin.
Evans also had an uncle who wrestled, Greg Evans, who wrestled for Minnesota. A third uncle, Glenn Love, played football for Illinois. Love's son and first cousin of Evans, Glenn Love, Jr., is a freshman at UCLA.
