Katron Evans sees his recruitment continue to heat up

Size and athleticism is hard for college coaches to ignore.
Even though his sophomore season has just started, he’s obviously proven enough to pick up big time college scholarship offers.
Katron Evans (2021 DT 6-4 290) has plenty of upside, and his combination of athleticism and size has college coaches salivating.
On Wednesday evening, Alabama became the latest school to jump on board with Evans. Wide receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator Josh Gattis, who has recruited the region for several schools including Western Michigan, Vanderbilt and Penn State, was the coach that extended the offer.
“It means a lot when even the number one school in college football wants you,” said Evans.
Earlier this year, Evans made a southern swing of college visits that included Tennessee and Florida State. On that trip, he picked up scholarship offers from the Volunteers and Seminoles. Now that Alabama has offered, he has a reason to visit Tuscaloosa.
It’s a quiet week in high school football locally with school’s out for hurricane preparations. Hurricane Florence was projected to pass through the region, but has since diverted for a path along the North Carolina/South Carolina border. The offer from Alabama was a welcome disruption from what amounts to a week off from football for Katron.
Evans is now over twenty college scholarship offers with Alabama added to offers from Nebraska, Missouri, UNC, Michigan, Oklahoma, Florida State, VUL, Rutgers, Norfolk State, Texas A&M, UVA, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Georgia, Southern Miss, Tennessee and Penn State.
