From - Interview With Tyreke Evans From Saturday Night

From - Interview With Tyreke Evans From Saturday Night

Last but not least, I spoke with Tyreke Evans who seemd bored and hungry but was very nice. Despite a relative no-show performance on Saturday, I stand by my statement that Evans as the top player in the class. He commented that nobody on Team USA gave him any problems in practice, that he was told to be the team's leader by Coach Douglas Mitchell, and that he patterns his game after Gilbert Arenas and Brandon Roy (!). He said he has seen the Blazers play a few times and that Roy, Aldridge and Jack impress him with their energy.

When the topic of next year came up, Evans for some unknown reason decided not to release his commitment choice as a exclusive, but did say his list was down to "Villanova, Memphis and..................[long pause as he tried to remember who the third school was]...... Texas." He said, with a smile, that nothing that happened during the tournament changed his mind. He also said he was looking for a guard-heavy offense that would get up and down the court but would feature some pro-style half-court sets so that he can continue his development. His commitment is coming April 16. Sounds like Memphis to me, but you never know.
