The Buffaloes have a blueprint on building a class: start with the Colorado guys. For the past few years, this has paid off big time with early commitments from some of the state’s best players. 2019 looks to be more of the same. After securing the state’s best RB prospect in Joshia Davis, Colorado has locked the best QB prospect in Ty Evans.
Evans led Palmer Ridge High School to a 3A state championship this year, and he broke some records along the way. As a junior, he passed for 3,627 yards and 42 touchdowns, to only 7 interceptions. He was an efficient, accurate passer. Even though this is relatively early in the process, Evans had already garnered interest from big out of state programs. He was committed to Arkansas for most of last year. Then, Bert Bielema got fired, so Evans sat back and explored his options. CU continued to recruit him hard, even through the QB coach change (Kurt Roper, the new QB coach, also offered him at South Carolina).
