(Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)Zachary Evans holds the distinction of being both the top running back in the country and the top player from the state of Texas. Naturally, the Longhorns are extremely interested in bringing him to Austin, and it appears the interest may be mutual.According to the Austin American-Statesman, Evans is slated to make a visit to the Texas campus this weekend. The visit comes despite Evans having snubbed the Longhorns from his top five list in May.The 2020 running back is a five-star prospect ranked No. 6 in the nation by 247Sports. He is the No. 1 running back prospect in the country, and the No. 1 prospect from the state of Texas. His scouting report compares him to two-time Pro Bowl running back Melvin Gordon.Last season for North Shore High School, Evans rushed for 1,483 yards and 27 touchdowns en route to a Class 6A Division I state title.pic.twitter.com/R1FiMfNaIk— Zach Evans (@Runzekerun01) May 28, 2019The Longhorns will likely need to make a very good impression in order to sway Evans, though.His top five list consists of some Power Five titans that have developed plenty of elite NFL running backs in their own right. Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State, and Oklahoma all made the cut.Per the report, Evans is planning to “wait until late in the process” to make a college decision.last_img read more
