Five-star Georgia running back signee Zachary Evans is not expected to end up with the Bulldogs, according to 247Sports.

Evans made plans to announce his school commitment twice during his recruitment but canceled both announcements and signed with Georgia during the early signing period in December.
quote:

Evans told reporters at the Under Armour All-American Game that he signed with a college team during the Early Signing Period. That program was Georgia. However, Evans did not announce his college decision as previously scheduled during the all-star game. Evans said postgame he “can’t answer” questions about his college decision, per 247Sports’ Brian Dohn.

247Sports reached out to Evans and his family for comment but did not receive a response prior to publication.

Evans signed an NLI during the Early Signing Period. But that does not necessarily bind him to Georgia. The Bulldogs are expected to grant Evans an unconditional release. That will allow Evans to explore other options. Other schools are prohibited from contacting Evans while he’s bound by an NLI, per NCAA regulations.
Evans, who visited LSU in October, could be in the mix for the Tigers once he is released from his National Letter of Intent with Georgia. Texas A&M is also a potential landing spot for the talented running back.

LSU doesn't need him. He seems to be toxic, but to the people who says "we don't need him because he doesn't honor contracts". Does anyone honor contracts? Moorhead had a contract with MSU through 2023. He got fired this year. Last year Manny Diaz signed a contract to be Temple's HC, then Miami came calling. He got out of his contract. That's just two examples that I can think of right off the top of my head. Get out of here with that.

Love the way some of you call this guy a "kid" or even a "child"?!?!?!!? How different 18 year old "kids" were, back from the greatest generation. Everyone should go spend a day at the WW II museum in NO to see why it was called the greatest generation. Sadly this generation will probably have a much different name to describe it.

Don't need him, he doesn't honor contracts or his word. Seems like he would be a transfer portal guy after the first year. Why waste a scholarship?

LSU could take him , but give him a short leash. Coach O would have to make that decision though.

Seems like flaky unreliable recruits almost always end up being an issue.

Don't turn your back on guys like this. We've all made mistakes. If Coach O really treats his players like his own son, then he just might be the influence this kid needs to become a better person.

Or he could become a huge distraction to the program

Naw, screw that. We don’t need him. NO CHEST. That stunt he pulled on UGA, if that was us the same fans who are saying to embrace him are some of the same ones who would be crucifying him if it was us he shite on.

Coach O treats *HIS* players like his sons. This kid had an offer. He didn’t want to be here. Now he wants to revoke his LOI with UGA? Nah bruh. Guys who do all this back-and-forth almost never pan out. Time to move on.

Jumbo special. Talented head cases requiring special needs to not detonate in public.

Why call a child/young man a bastard?

Maybe because there's a really good chance he is literally a bastard.

There’s a difference between being an indecisive 18 year old and being an a-hole 18 year old.

Looks like something is wrong with him to be honest, Georgia is dodging a bullet

He may be seeing that GA makes a lot of noise but has not achieved much in terms of a Natty. If he is that good, he will not be there 4 years. 18 and who knows whose advice he is following.

These are kids. No telling what’s going on in his head. The conditions under which he signed may have changed we don’t know about. If coaches (which are actually paid) can come and go as they please, a player who isn’t even on campus should be able to have a change of heart.

You sign with a team on signing day and then just get out of it?

If there is any coach who can help him it is Coach O.

A&M needs him ALOT more than we do. However, if he wants to be a tiger why turn him away?? We have no RB signed with this class. Coach O and the rest of the staff will coach him up and get him right. He'll have no choice but to straighten up once he gets here and sees how much talent we have in our backfield (that is if he wants to see the field.

Run, don't walk to the next prospect.

Don’t want. Pass.

DO. NOT. WANT. We’ve got too much going for our program to risk anything on this kid. Maybe he turns out just fine, hope so, but he’s not worth the risk for a program in LSU’s position.

Agree. His word means nothing. Got that 'Cecil the Diesel Collins look. Trouble. We're good.
