Former Texas A&M Football WR Mike Evans is an elite NFL player
It seems like Mike Evans’ career with Texas A&M doesn’t get the recognition that it should have.
Evans is another player who wasn’t highly recruited in high school. He came in as a 3-star recruit, ranked 733rd nationally, who wasn’t expected to make an impact until later in his career. Oh, how wrong that would be.
He would be redshirted as a freshman, but in his second season, he would explode onto the scene, putting up extremely impressive numbers for a player who was hardly expected to see the field. In two years, Evans would accumulate 2,499 yards and 17 touchdown receptions, forming an unstoppable duo with Johnny Manziel. This would result in Evans earning AP All-American honors.
Evans would depart for the NFL after his redshirt sophomore season, where he would be selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the seventh overall pick. He still resides in Tampa Bay, where he has earned three Pro Bowl honors and, most recently, a Super Bowl ring.
He’s only 27, so expect to watch this guy in at least a few more Pro Bowls on a strong Buccaneers team in the next few years.
