Evans to play safety for the Gators behind Wright and Black

The Gators recruited Josh Evans as an all-around athlete, but rumor has it that he will be an expected contributor to Florida's defensive backfield.  The 6-2, 185 pound playmaker played mostly as a quarterback in during his last two years at Irvington HS in Irvington (NJ).

The Gators are planning on using Evans as a safety but will start out on special teams due to the defensive backfield's current depth.  Questions arose with Evans at safety because the Gators seem to be set with Ahmad Black and Major Wright.  With Black being a junior and Wright, also a junior, projected to go to the NFL in 2010, defensive backfield depth is key.  Evans recorded 78 tackles and seven interceptions on defense during his senior year. He was named the Star-Ledger Essex County (NJ) Player of the Year and a was a first-team all-state selection as a senior.  Evans was recruited by Oklahoma, Pittsburgh and Purdue.
