"When all was said and done, though, Evans was seemingly at peace with his decision. In the weeks leading up to signing day, Evans spoke fondly of his relationship with Saban, specifically citing the Alabama coach’s honesty during the recruiting process — something Evans had said would be key in making his ultimate decision.
“Over the past few weeks I’ve learned a lot about Coach Saban,” Evans said on Jan. 24. “I’ll be honest with you, he’s one of the most kind-hearted coaches I’ve met. He’s honest. He’s honest about everything he says. He’s not going to tell you you’re going to start.
“He tells you you’re going to go through the process and we’ll see what happens then. He’s straight up with me, and that’s what I like in a coach.”
