His parents made the trip and were also impressed. They're on their way to Missouri now. He said the visit definitely put the Hogs in a better position with him. He plans to announce his top five in the near future.

Defensive line coach Rory Segrest is his lead recruiter. Evans said he and Segrest are lovers of cars and they talked about that quite a bit during the visit. He talked well of Segrest and said Segrest recruited one of his trainers.

Bielema told him that he coached linebackers earlier in his career and bragged about his instincts.
