Monroe, Mich., cornerback Kris Evans kept thinking about the family feeling he got on one of his visits. In the end, he wanted to be a part of that college family for good.
"I've committed to Stanford," Evans said. "When I went there it is was such a family feeling. The players there were great. And the guys I visited were great. Of the 13 guys I think 10 have committed. We really hit it off with each other."
Evans was obviously attracted by Stanford's excellent academic reputation.
"The school is great," said the 6-foot-0, 170-pound prospect. "When I went we met with a professor and that was very neat."
The two-star athlete, who made 40 tackles last season, said there might be a chance to get right on the field.
"They've talked about a corner spot," Evans said. "I'll have to go in and work to get that spot, but it is there and I'll have a chance to earn playing time."
The Michigan standout said the distance from home isn't a problem.
"I'm not taking anymore visits," Evans said. "Stanford is it. I'm glad to have it over so I can concentrate on basketball and being a student. It is good to know where I'm going."
