No one wants to see football canceled this fall, but due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there’s already been several cancellations and changes made.
High school football has been pushed back to 2021 in several states. And the junior college season has already been postponed, which is actually good news for one of the Tennessee Vols‘ 2021 commits.
Four-star running back Tiyon Evans, who committed to Tennessee in late April, was set to play this fall at Hutchinson Community College.
But because of COVID-19, Evans won’t play this fall. Which means he won’t be forced to use a year of eligibility, according to a report from 247Sports. As a result, Evans will arrive at Knoxville next year with three years of eligibility remaining (plus a redshirt year, if needed), instead of just two years.
While I’m sure Evans would love to play this fall, I doubt he’ll be upset about having an extra season to play at Neyland Stadium.
Evans, 5-foot-9/225 lbs from Hartsville, SC, is rated by 247Sports as the No. 1 junior college running back in the nation and the No. 2 overall 2021 junior college recruit.
