With the first round of the NFL Draft on tap for Thursday night, college football fans across the country are anticipating players from their schools being selected by NFL teams. Fans of Texas A&M have to be especially excited with quarterback Johnny Manziel, lineman Jake Matthews and wide receiver Mike Evans being projected as top 10 picks.
In a way to wish Evans good luck, some Aggies made an addition to the entrance sign of the Evans Library on campus to include Mike’s name.
The Sterling C. Evans Library is the largest library on A&M’s campus, so with final exams wrapping up this week, it’s a nice tribute for a guy who put up some eye-popping statistics in his two seasons on the field in College Station.
As a redshirt freshman, the 6-foot-5, 225-pound Evans hauled in 82 passes for 1,105 yards and five touchdowns. He caught fewer passes, 65, as a sophomore, but he set a school record with 1,394 receiving yards and tied the A&M record with 12 touchdown catches.
