Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas A&M Battling For Star
Ole Miss, Tennessee and Texas A&M are battling for a star running back.
The best running available in the 2020 class, Zach Evans, is narrowing down his options.
After originally signing a National Letter of Intent with Georgia, the Bulldogs reportedly backed out of their agreement with him over what has been described as an “unknown incident.”
Evans subsequently apologized to his “college coaches” over something, but did not clarify what he was apologizing for.
This week, 247 Sports college football insider Steve Wiltfong reported that Evans is currently trying to decide between the Rebels, Volunteers and Aggies.

“The recruitment of Houston (Texas) North Shore five-star running back Zachary Evans has seen Ole Miss and Tennessee pushing down the stretch,” he wrote.
“Texas A&M has been considered hot and cold in this recruitment. Maybe they get hot again. Contact is still there and a source thinks they could still land him.”
USC is reportedly a dark horse contender for Evans’ services, but he is expected to go with one of the other programs.
Given Clay Helton’s history of being unable to recruit top talent, this is not particularly surprising.
A final decision on where Evans will ultimately go is expected at some point in the next few weeks.
