Georgia Tech football linebacker commit Cornelius Evans put pen to paper on Wednesday and signed with the Yellow Jackets.
Three-star outside linebacker Cornelius Evans officially became a Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket on Wednesday when he put pen to paper and signed his letter of intent to play football on The Flats.
The Central Gwinnett linebacker has been committed to the Jackets since January 20th. He committed to Tech over 14 other programs on his reported offer list including Baylor, Rutgers, and UMass. Evans committed to the Yellow Jackets following his official visit to Georgia Tech on January 18th. He also took an official visit to Baylor on December 14th prior to the early signing period.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Evans wasn’t heavily recruited by FBS level programs but the Jackets could have a steal in Evans. At 6-foot-4, 220-pound Evans already has great size and shows some solid instincts as well as you can see on his HUDL film below. His HUDL page lists his 40-yard dash at 4.68 which if accurate is another great sign for the Yellow Jackets.
For the Yellow Jackets, Evans is one of two linebacker commitments in the 2019 recruiting class. Joining Evans on The Flats from the 2019 recruiting class is Chico Bennett Jr out of Battle Ground Academy in Franklin, Tennessee.
Overall, 247Sports’s composite rankings has Evans ranked as a top-1600 recruit nationally, the 117th ranked outside linebacker, and the 152nd ranked player in the state of Georgia. Evans is the second 2019 recruit to sign with the Jackets on Wednesday. He joins WR Nazir Burnett while transfer Marquez Ezzard also signed.
