Defensive Back


Walk-on defensive back who will look to work his way up the depth chart ... Is a talented athlete who never got a chance to shine in high school, due to injuries he suffered prior to his junior and senior seasons.


Had a tough-luck run with injuries that pretty well sideline him each of his last two years at Episcopal High School in the Houston, Texas area ... Tore his left ACL in the beginning of his junior season, and just prior to his senior season, tore the ACL in his other knee, in 7-on-7 drills ... Lettered two years in football and was a four-year letter-winner in track and field, where he was an all-conference performer in the 400-meters, as well as 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams ... Also was a conference finalist in the shot put ... High school coach - Dick Philips.


Parents - Ronnie & Stelena Evans ... Plans to major in accounting within MU's esteemed School of Business, which was one of the main draws for him to come to Mizzou ... Long-term goals are to earn a Master's degree in accounting and practice accounting for his trade ... Lists playing musical instruments as a hobby of his outside of football, in fact, he originally was going to major in music
