DeQuin Evans on the Rise

Chris Low, of ESPN has written an excellent article on DeQuin Evans. The article talks about DeQuin growing up in the projects with his sisters and the violence that he saw while growing up in California. This will only be his 4th year of organized football and interestingly enough his passion of football stemmed from his growing up with USC Trojans players as friends (Reggie Bush to name one).

Evans says that he is working hard than ever and looks to improve upon his 2009 stats as a 1st year starter at UK. For the year, Dequin had 38 Total Tackles (25 solo), 12.5 Tackles for Loss (48 yards), 6 sacks for 40 yards, and a QB Hurry.

Look for DeQuin to be the bedrock of the UK defense for the '10 season. The coaches were saying that the light was really coming on for him before his early Spring injury which kept him out of the Spring Game.

  1. Read the whole article, great story and I had no idea of DeQuin's background. Makes me want to root that much harder for him. Also a guy with that much upside will be a hot commodity in the next draft.
