There is no indication either way as yet if Evans has declared for the draft. No one can reach him. Yesterday was the “deadline” but the early entries still have 72 hours to solidify that. Evans has NOT worked out this week with the team in winter workouts.
Jelani Jenkins, Mike Wallace (not the guy from 60 Minutes, but I wish it was), Paul Jones, and a bunch of kids already committed, are all at Penn State this weekend on officials. Justin Brown is also there. He switched his visit date because of the garbage going on at BC. They lost their HC, and today their OC left as well. That basically means if we want Jim Noel (CB we are chasing) we can have him. Looks like we want him.
Oh, John Urschel is also there. He is the lineman they discovered about 2 weeks ago. 1st team all state in NY, won a lineman award, yadda yadda. Urschel can play OG and DT, which is what the staff likes. I think he will commit this weekend.
There is good news from sources in MD that jenkins is a PSU lean and MAY even commit this weekend. That is HUGE news. There is also word that paul Jones may commit this weeknd, for 2010.
Word from the winter workouts is that Jack Crawford (DE replacement for Evans or Maybin) is looking excellent. But the real freak of nature is true freshman Gerald Hodges, a S from New Jersey. I cannot imagine them keeping this kid off the field next season. I honestly think this kid will start. They have been ranting and raving about him all week. What that means is that Knowledge Timmons might as well quit the team, because he will never play again. Sayonara, shorty. Better luck making it as a filthy, stinky midget. Cool names do not equal starting lineup unless you are in a league run by Dolan.
I’ll let you know how this weekend plays out.
