In a bit of a surprise, Auburn, Alabama native Rashaan Evans has decided to play for Nick Saban, not Gus Malzahn. Ranked by Rivals as the best linebacker in the country, the 5-star player took his time in making his announcement (which we think is sorta/kinda weak).
Evans recently saw coaches from both Auburn and Alabama show up at a birthday party for this grandfather. Apparently the Bama folks made the better impression.
For Alabama it’s a case of the uber-rich getting uber-richer.
