A loss for Arkansas turned into a big gain for the University of Colorado. After rescinding his verbal commitment to the Razorbacks, Palmer Ridge quarterback Ty Evans committed to play football for the Buffs.
The Denver Post was the first to report the news. Evans confirmed the commitment to CHSAANow.com and solidified the announcement on Twitter.

Evans threw for 3,627 yards and 42 touchdowns last season as he led the Bears to the Class 3A state football title. It was the first football championship in program history.
"My entire family is excited about this," Evans said when confirming his commitment.
Evans has been a hot commodity in the recruiting world as he has fielded offers from South Carolina, Kansas State, Colorado State, NC State and Northwestern.
He is also the second in-state football player from the 2019 class to announce his college choice.
