Head coach Tim Corbin on Evans: “Donye had a long way to go when he stepped on campus last year, but if there is any kid that has transformed himself academically, athletically, physically, and emotionally…it’s him. I’m proud of the student-athlete that he is becoming. The pitching skill is starting to grow as well. Although he got limited time off the mound last year, he is trending in a good direction. Fun kid to be around.”
