    the amount runs of over ten yards are more important than ones over 50. I want the guy that leads the nation in runs between 8-20 yards which means he is getting to the second level.

    8-20 UF runs means the line makes a crease and he back is proficient at hitting it. 20-end zone is on the back

    I don't see a listed 100m time for Evans, but even if he is slower than Bowman at that distance it wouldn't worry me much. A key reason is that 100m track speed is very different from your breakaway speed on a football field wearing 10+ pounds of pads. Some players who don't have great track speed seem to "overperform" on the football field because they just don't slow down much, where others slow down more when wearing a helmet and pads.

    Another thing with the 100m for a football recruit is considering the conditions under which it was run. For some players who run truck you may have an available time based upon performance at a track meet on a fast track wearing spikes and getting to use starting blocks. That is very different from running a 100m on grass wearing cleats and will lead to substantially faster times.

    Either way both Bowman and Evans are two of the elite backs in 2019. It would be great to have gotten Bowman and continued the Lakeland pipeline. But Evans sure seems like a taker for pretty much any school.

    EVANS: 5’ 11” - 200 lbs., 4.51 40, 3.84 shuttle, 37.2” vertical.

    BOWMAN: 5’ 9” - 191 lbs., 4.47 40, 4.31 shuttle, 36.3” vertical.

    Both RB’s have lethal quicks, cutting ability and enough speed to take it to the house from anywhere on the field. Personally the shuttle time for Evans is freaky and explains why LB’s and DB’s who look like they have a shot at stopping him, often never touch him. He’s strong enough and quick enough to be thunder and lightning. If he is a Gator we’re going to be blessed with one of the top RB rooms in the country. He’s another co-captain along with Cox and Braun for the UGA game.

    Evans was the #1 player in the nation at one point regardless of position. Him & Bowman aren't close whatsoever.

    Don't know for sure, but reading from several "in the know" posters, Bowman may not have the grades/test scores to make it into college without going JUCO.

    I’m thinking Clemson will get this handled and Bowman enrolled.

    His footwork and how he hits the hole reminds me of Walter Payton for some reason. He has a certain calmness in the backfield before he he hits it up in there.

    A full second slower is a reach since Bowman's 10.41 time was wind-aided. His normal times were 10.8 to 11 seconds which are still darn fast.

    That's a huge difference between the shuttle times. Is that even real? Evans would appear to have a HUGE advantage in lateral cutting ability based on that.

    When you watch Evan’s HUDL you see a lot of defenders grabbing air even though he’s a north-south runner. All he needed in HS was the slightest seam and he could embarrass the second level. MaxPreps has him at 210 lbs. In trying to verify Evans impressive shuttle time, I ran across an article stating since 2006, only 6 NFL combine athletes have had a shuttle time as fast as Evans.
