Bleacher Report released a list of their top 10 “Under-The-Radar” QB’s for 2016 last week, and they included Tulsa’s Dane Evans. I invite you to check out the article here.
It is nice to see a Golden Hurricane get national attention, and rightfully so for Dane. Evans thrived in Philip Montgomery’s offense last season throwing for over 4,300 yards, and racking up 25 touchdowns. Now with almost two years of experience under his belt, we have every right to expect that Dane will put up similar, if not better numbers in 2016.
Evans is sure to garner even more national attention in the 2016 season if he finds his groove early. NFL Scout lists him as the 33rd best QB in the 2017 draft. Although he is only 6 foot, I expect that number to climb, not fall.
With the departure of Paxton Lynch and Keenan Reynolds from the conference, Dane is right up there with Houston’s Greg Ward Jr. as the AAC’s best QB.
I am eager to see arguably the best QB in the conference throw it to the best receiver in the conference, September 3rd can’t come soon enough.
