Evans likes Tech's progress

Grand Prairie (Texas) South Grand Prairie defensive end Kindred Evans was at the Cotton Bowl over the weekend for the Red Raiders' victory over Baylor. The 2011 Texas Tech commit came away noticing marked improvement from the team.

"I liked it a lot. I think they've started to kind of get their head on straight about what they're supposed to be doing out there. It takes more than a lot of people realize to play in a new system," Evans said. "They've struggled some this year, but it was good to see them look more and more comfortable in it, and get a win on Saturday. I think they'll keep improving every week."

"The defense did an awesome job of covering up Robert Griffin. That guy is one of the most dangerous individuals in the game today and they never really let him get on track. It was a great game between the two, but I was glad to see Tech put enough together to get the win."

Since committing to Texas Tech in June, Evans hasn't wavered on his decision. He says he still only hopes to visit Tech again, if he takes another trip at all.

"I'm really not planning on visiting anywhere else. I've been down with Texas Tech for a while now so I'll probably only travel to see them again this year."

Evans has remained in contact with the staff in Lubbock, speaking mostly with defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson. He mentioned Iowa State, TCU, and UTEP as a few of the programs who are still on his trail. Regardless, the 6-foot-6, 215-pounder is hoping to schedule another visit to see the Red Raiders in action.

"I'm trying to get out to Lubbock for the OSU game this weekend, but I'm not sure if I can make it happen. I've got to arrange some other things before I know for sure," he said. "I definitely want to see them play again if possible. This weeks game is going to be a good one so I'm going to try and be there for it if I can."

Evans committed to Texas Tech in June over offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Colorado State, Illinois, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Minnesota, and Western Kentucky.
