Tulsa CB transfer Akayleb Evans commits to Missouri

Despite receiving a visit from former Tulsa Golden Hurricane cornerback Akayleb Evans last week and appearing among his top five schools, the Texas Longhorns missed out on the graduate transfer when he committed to the Missouri Tigers on Friday evening.

Evans chose Missouri over his other four finalists — Jackson State, Notre Dame, Texas, and Texas Tech. In addition to visiting the Forty Acres, the 6’2, 188-pounder also visited Columbia and Fort Wayne in recent days.

Earlier in the year, Missouri head coach Eli Drinkwitz made a decision that ultimately influenced the decision by Evans when he hired Tulsa defensive backs coach Aaron Fletcher for the same role with the Tigers.
