Evans is a young guard with quality size, a good build, and versatile tools. He attacks the rim aggressively and isn't bothered by contact, allowing him to get to the free-throw line or make plays for himself. He's also a willing ball-mover and quality passer who will make extra passes around the perimeter and find his teammates off the dribble. He has solid mechanics and touch to make him a projectable shooter and is also an active defender and rebounder at this stage.
Evans went for 25 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals, and 3 blocks against Springfield Renaissance earlier this year, his only game of the season so far.
