Evans becomes the third player in program history to come away with AP All-America accolades. He joins Jason Sasser (1995-96) and Andre Emmett (2003-04).
The AP is among the outlets used for the official NCAA consensus All-America Team. The AP selection made Evans 4-for-4 and the program’s third consensus All-America pick.
