Jerod Evans

From Dallas, Texas, Evans began his college career at Air Force before a torn ACL caused him to transfer to Trinity Valley CC. There, scouts ranked him a 4-star recruit and the No. 10 player on its JUCO Top 100 list for that year. Evans transferred to Virginia Tech for his junior year, where he promptly earned the starting Quarterback position.

Evans blossomed as a Hokie, starting 14 games in his only season in Blacksburg. He completed 63.5 percent of his passes for 3,546 yards and 29 touchdowns against just 8 interceptions. Evans also looked the part of a dual-threat passer with 846 rush yards and 12 scores on the ground. He broke the school record for total offense in a season, most passes completed (263), most touchdowns thrown (28), most touchdowns thrown in a game (5), most passing yards, and highest completion percentage.

Many scouts believed Evans should stay another season at VT; however, he decided to enter the NFL draft. Undrafted, Evans signed on with the Philadelphia Eagles. After an injury, he was scooped up by the Green Bay Packers, earning a place on their practice squad.

In 2018, the 6’3″ 230 lbs dual-threat stud will join The Spring League to prove to NFL scouts he belongs on Sunday’s.
