Texas 3-Star QB Nick Evers Enjoys Virtual Visit, Relationship With PSU OC Mike Yurcich

Prior to arriving at Penn State, offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich was developing a relationship and recruiting quarterback Nick Evers to the University of Texas.

With that familiarity of Evers and his game, Yurcich continued to pursue the Flower Mound, Texas native after accepting the job running James Franklin’s offense. The recruitment of Evers has gotten more serious in the last couple of weeks as first the Nittany Lions offered him a scholarship and then hosted him on a virtual visit on Wednesday.

Evers (6-foot-3, 190 pounds) is a 3-star quarterback from Flower Mound High School in Flower Mound, Texas. Along with Penn State, Evers also holds offers from Florida, Boise State, Cincinnati, Colorado, Houston, Minnesota and Virginia Tech.

Nittany Sports Now had the chance to talk with Evers this morning to get his impressions of his first look at Penn State, the familiarity he’s built with Yurcich and to learn about his skills as a quarterback.

“My talks really started when Coach Yurcich moved over to Penn State,” Evers told Nittany Sports Now. “I was originally talking with him while he was at Texas and that continued when he moved to Penn State. A few weeks after he got the job, I received a call from him and Coach Franklin that they were extending an offer. They’ve been very real and up front with me, saying that they’re taking two quarterbacks in this class and want me to be the second one. To get that offer was a really cool moment because Penn State is a very respected, not just football program but academics as well.

“Coach Yurchich is a very family oriented guy, just like Coach Franklin is. He’s a very real and honest person. I really like he’s going to do well running Penn State’s offense. They have so many tools over there and he’s bringing a great offensive scheme. Penn State is definitely going to be a very successful team with his offense.”

Evers said that strengths of his game include his overall athletic ability and programs are telling him they love his potential and that the sky is the limit for him and his best football is definitely ahead of him.

“Coach tells me how he likes how I spin the ball and the velocity I put on my throws,” said Evers. “I believe I make good decisions and I’m very smart with the football.”

Although he’s familiar with the brand of Penn State football, Wednesday was Evers first opportunity to see and learn about State College and the program that Franklin has built.

“It’s hard to point out just one thing that stood out about the virtual visit because it was very impressive and they have so much going on there,” he said. “Penn State is a good football town, it’s a great college town, they provide you with a great education and the football team is pretty successful almost every season and they put a lot of players in the NFL.

“I’m just excited to continue to talk with the staff more and to further our relationship. Hopefully, once COVID ends I can go up on campus and get a real feel for the campus because you can’t really get that with virtual visits,” said Evers.

In terms of making a decision, Evers told NSN that his plan now is to make a decision prior to the summer so that he can have his decision made and can be a leader in help recruiting players to his college choice.
