Che Evans received an offer in June, officially visited San Diego State last month, and today he chose the Aztecs. San Diego State jumped in late to Evans recruitment, really got in there due to the hiring of assistant coach Chris Acker who had been recruiting him at Boise State. From there the coaching staff made Evans a priority and demonstrated it by calling and messaging regularly. Evans rewarded their perseverance by putting the Aztecs in his top two, with Boise State, and ultimately chose San Diego State over the Broncos.
Getting Evans is another score for the Aztecs in what is turning in to be a very good recruiting class. A top talent he brings a lot of versatility to the court and can be a scorer and facilitator. Watching him on film you can see a player who can affect the game in a variety of ways. He can score from deep at a high level and is athletic enough to take it inside and get points near the basket. On top of that he is a facilitator as well.
Evans has been underrated and under ranked due to an injury that has nagged him for a long time, which he recently corrected via surgery. The injury kept him from consistent playing time in the Nike EYBL for Team Melo and hindered him from being effective. Truth be told Evans is a top-75 player and looks to show that this upcoming year at Neumann Goretti High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The Aztecs now have three commits for the 2020 class in Butler and Evans. The trio of Evans, Butler, and recent addition Keith Dinwiddie is a great foundation to this class. There is a lot of potential in what this class can become. San Diego State has one more scholarship for 2020 and is eyeing a big man to add to the three players they have. Our Commitment Probability Index had the likelihood of a commitment at 90%.
