Michigan Football Recruiting: All-purpose back Chris Evans commits to the Wolverines

New, comments

Michigan adds to its list of 2016 running backs with the commitment of Evans.

That escalated quickly.

Michigan received a commitment on Saturday from 2016 running back Chris Evans (Indianapolis, Indiana), according to Sam Webb of Scout.com.

Evans is a four-star prospect and the seventh-ranked all-purpose back in the class of 2016, according to the 247 Composite ranking system. He was visiting Ann Arbor last weekend and an offer went out while he was on campus.

Many expected Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines to be done with 2016 running backs after commitments from Matt Falcon (Southfield, Michigan) and Kingston Davis (Prattville, Alabama), coupled with the commitment of three-star RB Kiante Enis, it became clear that they were willing to add a fourth running back in the form of a speedier, pass-catching change of pace back. Evans certainly gives them that, based on his high school film.

Michigan is in desperate need of playmakers and guys that are a home run threat. Look for them to continue to address this with the wide receivers they bring in during the next two recruiting cycles.
