While it’s not officially official, all signs are pointing to Denzel Evans continuing his collegiate career in the Big 12.
Back in early May, Evans opted to transfer out of the Arkansas football program in a search of a better opportunity at playing time. Now, a month later, the running back has indicated to Matt Tait of the Lawrence Journal-World that, barring something unforeseen, he will transfer to Kansas and play for the Jayhawks.
“It’s as done as it’s gonna be without me signing,” he said of moving on to the Jayhawks. “I just want to focus on school, develop my game and be ready to go when I touch down in Lawrence.”
Evans will need to complete 18 credit hours in the two summer sessions at Arkansas in order to graduate from UA. H would then be eligible to play immediately at KU in 2016, and would have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
Evans hopes to be on campus and on the field with his new teammates for the start of summer camp in early August.
The past two seasons after redshirting as a true freshman in 2013, Evans had played in 15 games. Evans rushed for 84 yards on 13 carries in his Razorbacks career; 48 of those yards and six of the carries came in the fourth quarter of an Oct. 31 win over UT-Martin this past season.
Evans, a three-star 2013 signee, scored a pair of rushing touchdowns in the spring game last month.
