re: 5* RB Zachary Evans
A&M got Banks, an absolute stud (underrated, I think, though a high 4 star) from North Shore, and are in good shape with Davis, the QB from North Shore. Banks and Davis are both 2021 guys, but they could help with Evans.

UGA got Lindbergh, though, and Evans and Lindbergh have talked about playing together.

I think nobody has any idea what Evans is going to do.

UGA insiders believe the Dawgs lead in EVANS recruitment and he will make a commitment in September. Believe Dell McGee has sold him on ability to be part of a tandem and not overuse him in college much like Chubb/Michel and Gurley/Marshall and run behind the best offensive line in college football.

These kids today are more savvy about not letting college coaches use them up through overuse - You have heard it before "RBs only have so many carries in them" and best RB years are probably ages 20-26. RBs get screwed in the NFL because the position shelf life is short - they basically have ONE SHOT on the 2nd contract and want to get there with as much tread on the tire as possible.

Obviously ATM has the home state and great coach/program as well. My guess today is EVANS initally commits to DAWGS in September and will have to fight off ATM all the way until early commit date in December.

If EVANS commits to the G in September, it will be the equivalent of a one touchdown lead at halftime - long way to go to win the game.

re: 5* RB Zachary Evans
Do you think UGA has a monopoly on the ability to pitch and legitimately offer being part of a great tandem of RBs at a program that produces high NFL dratft pick RBs, with lots of tread left on their tires and with very successful NFL careers? Do you think Bama isn't a strong contender for Evans that UGA will also have to fight for him?

re: 5* RB Zachary Evans
I don’t think the Uga poster you are responding to mentioned anything about Alabama or where they stand with running backs to begin with...in fact, he also didn’t mention Uga having any type of monopoly on running backs. He gave his opinion on the situation. Alabama May indeed get Evans but He isn’t obligated to give Alabama recognition to protect your feelings. That’s not how it works. Move along ...

re: 5* RB Zachary Evans
I know Long Dawg didn't mention Bama. I don't think and didn't say or imply that he was obligated to mention Bama, and his not doing so doesn't affect my feelings at all. I mentioned Bama to make a point -- that what he seems to think is UGA's big advantage is hardly unique to UGA. I did that in the form of the two questions that I asked him, not you. Btw, I'm not obligated to protect your sensitive feelings.

So it’s a Bama/Georgia battle at this point?

That wasn't the point of my post, nor is it my take on Evans' status.

I think Bama, ATM, LSU and UGA are all in it, and I expect some more twists and turns in Evans' recruitment. I won't be surprised if tOSU gets back in it too. I already said all of that earlier in this thread.

tOSU recently lost out on Bijan Robinson and a #2 RB they really expected to get. tOSU was dropped from Evans' earlier top 5 due to those expectations. Tbh, I haven't checked to see if tOSU has circled back and is going after Evans.

re: 5* RB Zachary Evans
My opinion, I think UGA leads and they expect a September commitment.

ATM, Bama, LSU still in it with time to turn it around with ATM being biggest threat.

As to the fella bent out of shape because I didn’t mention Bama, sure Bama has had a stable of backs as well - I just think Evans likes UGA more than Bama as of right now. Also don’t believe Bama is recruiting quite as well as UGA along the OL right now - still really good though.

I wasn't bothered that you didn't mention Bama. redandblackattack was the yapping puppy who got bent out of shape.

Dawgs lead at this point and are expecting a commitment.

Will obviously be a harrowing recruitment all the way until pen hits paper.

I keep reading this and while I'm obviously not saying that's false, I guess I just want to keep stressing that expecting anything from this kid is probably fools gold. He openly proclaims to play games with schools

Nobody know what he'll do. I wouldn't give more than 3 to 1 odds for anyone.

He isn't bought into any school at this point, and I don't get the sense that teams are convincing him as much as they are preventing themselves from being eliminated from contention.

Good news for UGA is there's already a back that fits perfectly already signed in this class and another 1st class back from the previous class in the fold. If Milton sticks (and he should) we can roll the dice and still feel good about the position whether or not we win.

re: 5* RB Zachary Evans
What in his history/personality shows he’d be likely to be kicked off of any team?

I'll believe a North Shore player signs with A&M when a North Shore player actually signs with A&M.
