Tyree Evans will NOT be a Wildcat
Quote:If Tyree Evans is ever given another chance, it's not going to happen at Kansas State.

A source told the Eagle on Wednesday that K-State was no longer interested in Evans, the 6-foot-3 guard from Richmond, Va., who is facing statutory rape charges in Massachusetts.

K-State athletic director Tim Weiser confirmed the information.

"We have made a decision to no longer recruit Tyree Evans," he said.

Less than two months ago, when it was reported K-State would admit Evans if he was cleared, Weiser defended his school's involvement.

"If we were afraid of public criticism, we wouldn't have hired Bob Huggins," Weiser told The Eagle on May 18. "I don't think we'd back away from giving a young man or woman a chance if we knew whatever they were involved with before wouldn't be an issue under our care at K-State."

But after an extensive background check recently, the administration wasn't as comfortable as it was before.

"After considering all of the info, he wasn't the 'fit,' " said Weiser, who refused to cite specifics. "He wasn't someone I was willing to take a risk on. In this case, there were enough other issues.

"Bob (Huggins) is on the same page."

Evans' status hadn't changed. In addition to rape, he was charged in September 2005 with indecent assault and battery of a child stemming from an October 2004 incident while he was a postgraduate student at the Winchendon (Mass.) School.

The pre-trial conference for his case had been continued twice, his latest date scheduled for July 20.

It has to be devastating for Evans, who has repeatedly stated his intention to play for Bob Huggins in Manhattan. Evans did not return messages left on his cell phone Wednesday.

An explosive scorer who scored 884 points as a senior in high school, a single-season total surpassed in Virginia only by Allen Iverson and Moses Malone, Evans was certain his case would be dismissed. He assumed he'd be playing basketball again, after a year away from organized competition, by fall.

Perhaps, but not at K-State.

sounds like he (Tyree) may be guilty of something...too bad, he could have been a heck of a player, maybe he can still do something with his life. How many years has he been on huggs radar?...seems like atleast 5.

Evans, just took a plea bargain. I guess thats why huggs cooled off last week. Evans will attend a juco school in Kansas. If he can get his life together, he will be a 25 yr old senior. ...Better late than never.
