Evans was a three-star recruit in the 2014 class from Berkner High School in Richardson, Texas, a northeast suburb of Dallas. He is one of eight Red Raiders from the state. His teammate Niem Stevenson arrived in Lubbock from Dallas and though he's the only Texas Tech player from the city, he is one of seven Dallas natives on Sweet 16 rosters, which ties it with Chicago for the most in the country.
Illinois has the second-most players with 16, followed by Florida (13), Ohio (12), Kansas (10) and Pennsylvania (10). Thirty-eight different states have at least one player.
