Sun Prairie, Wisc., defensive tackle Craig Evans remains committed to his home-state Badgers, but the four-star prospect will continue evaluating other schools and has several visits planned this summer.
"I know for sure I am going to Arkansas and a one-day camp at Michigan State," Evans said. "That one-day camp at Michigan State is on the 16th [of June] and I'm thinking of going [to Arkansas] that next weekend."
Evans said trips to Georgia and Ole Miss this summer are also possible, but not scheduled. He will also attend Wisconsin's one-day camp.
"Everything is great [with Wisconsin]," Evans said. "I'm going to go to that one-day camp and get a feel for the commits who will be out there. That will be nice for all of us to be there, talk with the coaches and get coached up."
Evans made his initial commitment to Wisconsin when the Arkansas coaching staff was still in Madison. He has continued to build a bond with those coaches since they took over the Razorback's program.
"I feel like, if anything, that relationship between me and Coach [Charlie] Partridge has grown," Evans said. "Coach [Chris] Ash came in one time and we got to talk, but Coach Partridge is the one who's showing a lot of interest, and that is the same way he was at Wisconsin."
Evans plans to make the trip to East Lansing on June 16 with Michigan State commitments Enoch Smith Jr. and Brian Allen.
"Enoch is a great guy and Brian is a great guy," Evans said. "One thing I kind of like is all the commits and [recruits] have a chat room on Facebook and we all can get on Facebook and chat as a group. I'm just really looking forward to getting down to the campus and seeing how I like it."
At the Chicago Rivals Camp last month Evans measured in at 6-foot-2 and 313 pounds, which was down from a playing weight of over 330 last fall. He said he continues to trim down and is now at 306 pounds.
