Transfer News: Wolfpack DB Nate Evans Commits To Delaware Blue Hens



 

WHO IS NATE EVANS

 

Former North Carolina State defensive back Nate Evans is a three-star prospect who signed with the Delaware Blue Hens on January 8, 2024. Evans held transfer offers from several schools including New Mexico, Albany, and Austin Peay among others. The 6-foot-1-inch, 190-pounder runs a 4.4 40-yard dash.



WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF THE COMMITMENT FOR DELAWARE

 

The transfer of Evans to Delaware gives the Blue Hens another power-five-level defensive back. Former Boston College defensive back Jason Scott signed with Delaware just a day earlier than Evans. Coming out of high school Evans had originally committed to Tennessee but after a visit to Raleigh, he flipped his commitment to the Wolfpack. He has played in only three games for North Carolina State, recording one tackle as a freshman in 2021. Getting Evans to commit gives the Blue Hens a defensive back who does not have a lot of wear and tear.

 

HOW QUICKLY CAN NATE EVANS CONTRIBUTE AT DELAWARE?

 

The Blue Hens use five defensive backs, so on the surface, there will be ample opportunities for playing time. Delaware also lost a couple of key contributors from the secondary as Tyson Herring and Khalil Dawsey have exhausted their eligibility. However, Ty Davis, 2023’s starter at the Star position, as well as corners Keeno Arrington and Khalil Dawsey and safeties Tyron Herring and Nic Ware all are back. Add in the signing of Scott, as well as other capable backs in the secondary, and there will be stiff competition to see the field in 2024.

 



SCOUTING NATE EVANS

 

Evans is a solid cover defensive back with very good speed. When playing the safety position Evans uses his speed to close on ball carriers and is a good tackler. His height and speed are ideal for a good shutdown corner. Evans has good lateral movement but needs to work on getting his head turned around more. He has long arms that help deflect passes when he does not get his head turned around.
