ATHENS - Flip season is here, and Bryan McClendon  just flipped one of the fastest receivers in the country in four-star Anthony Evans‍, who flipped today from Oklahoma to Georgia a day before the No. 1 Dawgs play the final game of the regular season.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder out of Judson (TX) took his official visit to Georgia the weekend of June 10th, but in a surprising move, committed to the Sooners over the Bulldogs back on August 26th.

“Georgia’s a very special place because of the people there”, Evans told Dawg Post. “They flat out care about the person first and the player second. I’ve connected with coach McClendon from day one.”

“He’s been to where I’m trying to get too, so having him as my position coach and having someone I can relate too is very important”, Evans added. “His track record on the players he’s coached speaks for itself. There aren’t many receiver coaches in the country as good as he is in my eyes.”

What was Georgia’s message to Evans?

“Be ready to play early” Evans said. “They said there’s not a receiver like me on the team at the moment. They said I’d help in the return game as well.”

What will Evans bring to Athens?

Speed and explosiveness. 

A high school track star, Evan’s speed will translate well to the next level and give him a chance to play early at Georgia.

Back in May, Evans ran an unofficial 4.36 in the 40-yard dash. He also came in 1st place in the 100-meter with a blazing time of 10.27. He came in 2nd in the 200-meter with an outstanding time of 21.1. 

He’s a vertical threat who can also help in the screen game. If he can develop his route-running and turn into a true receiver instead of just a “speed guy”, he has a very bright future ahead of him Between the Hedges. 

 As a senior this year, Evans has caught 55 passes for 698 yards and five touchdowns. He’s still a little bit of a project, but his speed will give Georgia a down-field weapon the second he gets to campus.

Ranked as a four-star prospect by the 247 Composite Rankings, Evans is ranked as the No. 38 wide receiver in the country, the No. 53 prospect in Texas, and the No. 283 overall prospect in the country.

Evans now gives Georgia four wide receiver commitments, joining four-stars Tyler Williams‍ and Raymond Cottrell‍ along with three-star Yazeed Haynes‍. With Evans on board, the Bulldogs have 22 current commitments in the 2023 class.
