Los Angeles (Calif.)

After visits to Kentucky and Kansas last month, Oregon is his next stop on the recruiting trail.

"I am going to Oregon this Friday," Evans said. "I have got Louisville the week after that."

Evans is 6-foot-3, 260 pounds and brutal off the edge with a reported 40-yard dash time somewhere around 4.6 seconds. Combine that with his 38-inch vertical jump and 19 repetitions of 225 pounds, and his measurables are off the charts.

Evans says the opportunity to play in the Pac 10 has always been a dream.
