Zachary Evans is an insanely talented running back. In fact, according to 247Sports’ Composite rankings, he is the No. 1 tailback in the entire 2020 class.

He’ll be a freshman next year. And he — as well as Bulldogs fans — thought he would be at Georgia for the next few years. After all, he had signed his letter of intent to become a Bulldog.

That all changed Tuesday, though:

This is where the recruitment of Evans will get tricky, because he can no longer sign a national letter on intent with the next program he commits to:

“The five-star running back cannot sign another NLI during this recruiting cycle, according to NCAA rules, which means Evans will verbally commit to his next school with no official paperwork tying him to that program,” wrote 247Sports’ Chris Hummer. “A similar situation occurred in 2018 with Ale Kaho and Washington. Kaho signed an NLI with the Huskies but never actually enrolled with the school. That August the Huskies granted him an unconditional release and soon after Kaho enrolled at Alabama without penalty.”

According to Hummer, 247Sports reached out to Evans and his family for comment, but did not receive a response.

With a full release, Evans will be able to play at whichever school he enrolls at in 2020. Oddly enough, Evans has never verbally committed to a school. He did, of course, sign an NLI with Georgia — which appears to no longer be in place.

Big Ten schools that have offered the five-star RB prospect include Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin.
