With good size and natural ability at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, Dejion Evans felt that he was an FBS wide receiver prospect during and after his senior season in 2012.
But as the cycle went through, he only held FCS offers.
"I finished (the cycle) with six offers...Towson, New Hampshire, Maine, Bryant, Sacred Heart and Merrimack," he said. "The (FBS) schools I aimed for were filled up at wide receiver."
Wanting better looks without sacrificing college eligibility, the West Roxbury (Mass.) Catholic Memorial standout will test his luck as a post-grad during the 2013 season.
"They've all contacted me to say they will be actively recruiting me next year."
"I've been working hard," he continued. "I'm up to 220 pounds and have gotten my 40 (yard dash) down to a sub-4.6 (second time)."
As for which school he will be attending in the fall, that has yet to be determined.
Said Evans, "I'm deciding between Phillips Exeter Academy (N.H.) and The Taft School (Conn.). I have a few months to pick which school I want to PG (post-grad) at."
Evans maintains that he has "excellent" grades, and that aspect of the scenario had nothing to do with his decision to play post-grad football.
