North Shore 2020 RB Zach Evans' (5'11, 200) recruiting saga ended today with the news that he has landed at TCU per reports confirmed by Jeremy Clark at

Per Clark, Evans has signed a financial aid agreement with TCU and has enrolled at TCU. 

Evans, who is rated as the No. 4 prospect in the 2020 DCTF Hot 100 and a five-star, is the highest-rated prospect to ever sign with the Horned Frogs.  

Evans had offers from all of the country's most elite football programs before off the field issues slowed his recruitment. 

Zach Evans Offer List:
LSU, Houston, Texas A&M, Texas, Baylor, Oregon, Kansas, Ohio State, Alabama, Iowa State, South Carolina, Ole Miss, Miami, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, Florida State, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi State, Arizona, Michigan, Oklahoma, TCU, UAB, USF, Auburn, Wisconsin, Penn State, Virginia Tech, Michigan State, USC, Notre Dame, Louisiana, UTSA, SMU, Nebraska, Washington, Missouri, Alcorn State, Illinois, Syracuse, Texas Tech, Wyoming, Rutgers, North Carolina, Colorado, Georgia Tech. 

In December, Reports indicated that Evans was sent home the night before North Shore's state championship game because he refused to give up his cell phone. 

In January, Evans took home MVP honors at the Under Armour All-America Game after rushing for 64 yards and a touchdown to help lead Team Pressure to a win. He was set to announce that he had signed a Letter of Intent with Georgia during the game's broadcast, but that announcement was canceled. Evans was subsequently granted a full release from the LOI that he had signed with the Bulldogs in the Early Signing Period.

Evans rushed for 4,837 yards and 76 rushing touchdowns and helped lead North Shore to two state championships. He earned DCTF Super Team, All-State, All-District, and All-American honors. 

Zach Evans Evaluation: Evans is rated as one of the top prospects in the state because he has the physique of a current college star. He can run by or through defenders trying to tackle him. Speed, versatility, power, balance, patience, burst, you name the characteristic of a standout running back and Evans checks the box. He can stop on a dime, run through tackles, and be a playmaking factor in the passing game. Evans has the tools to be an extraordinary talent.
