Union City (Calif.) James Logan three-star athlete Rashad Evans took an official visit to Utah this past weekend, and it was a visit that he really enjoyed.
"It was pretty good," Evans said. "It went to a basketball game. I got a chance to speak with the head coach, the offensive coordinator and the receiver coach. They just talked to me about how I would fit in on the offense and the special teams. I hung out with the players.
Evans said he started out being recruited mainly as a cornerback, but now almost all of his offers – from places like Cal, Georgia Tech, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah, Fresno State and others – are at the receiver spot.
"Only USC is recruiting me as a corner now," he said.
After the visit to Utah, he said he'd but the Utes in his top three with Cal and Oregon.
"My favorite part was just hanging out with the team," he said. "I felt like I fit in real well. We talked about early playing time and how if I handle my business I can play. My host was Maurice Neal. Actually his team and mine played each other in the regular season a year ago. So we knew a lot of the same people but we had never met each other.
"He was just telling me all the good things about it and all the bad things that weren't really bad things, just stuff we weren't used to since we were from the bay area."
Evans isn't sure what the rest of his visit schedule will look like.
"I haven't set the dates yet, but I plan on visiting Oregon, Cal, Tennessee and USC," he said.
