Buffs first to offer athletic SoCal QB

Clark Evans has been one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in California since his sophomore year. So it's no surprise that the 6-foot-5, 225-pounder from Los Alamitos (Calif.) High had his first scholarship offer in hand before he even played a down of his junior season.

"Colorado offered me before the season, it was a great feeling to get the first one out of the way," Evans explained. "It is nice to know that I have a scholarship offer there."

UCLA, Oregon, Boise State, Kansas State and a number of other schools have also shown interest. But Colorado remains his lone scholarship offer.

"I want to go through the whole recruiting process," Evans said. "I don't want to make a decision and look back and realize that it wasn't the best fit for me. I want to go visit the schools, I want to check out all my options."

What are his impressions of the Buffaloes?

"Coach Hawkins has come down to the school, I am impressed with what he has accomplished as a coach," Evans said. "He did well at Boise [State] and now he has the Colorado program coming up. I like their program; I like what they are doing. But I don't know yet, like I said, I want to wait through the recruiting process before I make a decision."

Evans accounted for nearly 3,000 yards of offense and 28 touchdowns as a junior. He showed well at the U.S. Army All-American Junior Combine in San Antonio last month.

"He should be a six star player next year by your ratings," Los Alamitos Coach John Barnes previously told Greg Biggins of Rivals.com. "He's an incredible talent and should be able to go wherever he wants. He's big and athletic and is a really good kid too. He's very tough and is easily one of the best players we've had here. I can't say enough about him. He's just a great prospect."

Evans also plays basketball. He plans to pursue a Business degree once he gets to college.
