With the start of summer camp less than two months away, Northwestern has landed a player who will be able to help the Wildcats’ defense immediately.
In a release, the school announced that defensive back Quinn Evans has decided to transfer to NU from Stanford. As Evans has already graduated and will pursue a master’s degree in Northwestern’s School of Continuing Studies, he will be eligible to play in 2012.
“I am extremely excited about the opportunity to finish my college football and academic careers at Northwestern,” Evans said in a statement. “My visit to campus and the relationships I’ve developed with Coach [Pat] Fitzgerald and other members of the Northwestern football program have left no doubt that NU is the right fit for me at this time.
“I’m looking forward to meeting my new teammates at the start of camp and contributing any way I can to our success this season.”
Evans redshirted his true freshman season in 2008, and then played in 20 games the next two seasons. He missed the entire 2011 season due to injury.
The Chandler, Ariz., native was a two-star member of the Cardinal’s 2008 recruiting class.
