A little over on week after landing a commitment from 2014 Allen (TX) linebacker and OU legacy Tay Evans, the Sooners have picked up another verbal from the Evans family. Wednesday afternoon Oklahoma picked up a commitment from Bobby Evans (VIDEO), Tay's younger brother, who is a talented 2015 tight end prospect.
The two and some other family were back in Norman for another unofficial visit and the older of the two took it upon himself to announce his younger brother's commitment via Twitter.

Although currently the younger Evans is a tight end, it will come as a surprise to all of zero OU fans that the prevailing theory is the Oklahoma coaches project him as an eventual offensive lineman.
While the Sooners may be struggling to a certain extent with respect to their 2014 recruiting, 2015 is off to a quick and quality start with Evans and OU's first 2015 commit Josh Wariboko. The latter of whom is the earliest recruit Oklahoma had ever received a verbal commitment from in regards to his class and the respective recruiting cycle. Granted neither were necessary challenges in terms of securing their commitment given their respective preexisting ties to OU (Evans a legacy and Wariboko the son of two OU alums), but that does nothing to take away from their talents. It's a very good and very early start to 2015 for Oklahoma offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh.
Evans also held offers from Mississippi and Oregon State prior to his commitment to Oklahoma.
Welcome to Sooner Nation, Bobby!
