Texas misses cut for five-star running back Zach Evans

Posted May 28th, 2019


Texas’ pursuit of the nation’s top running back seemingly came to an end on Tuesday afternoon when Galena Park North Shore’s Zachary Evans released a list of his top five schools. The No. 1 player on the 2020 Fabulous 55 didn’t include a single in-state school. Instead, Evans named LSU, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, and Oklahoma as his five finalists.

These are the schools he’ll presumably take official visits to before picking a school in December.


The 5-11, 200-pound five-star prospect is the country’s top player in the 2020 cycle, per 247Sports composite rankings. Evans helped Galena Park capture a Class 6A Division I state championship in a classic win over Duncanville. He holds 44 offers.
