Former Alabama LB andandvoices confidence ahead of Tide’s matchup against Texas

·2 min read

On Friday, former Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans voiced his confidence in the Crimson Tide ahead of their Week 2 matchup versus the Texas Longhorns. Evans currently plays for the Atlanta Falcons. He spoke with the Falcons’ social media team on how he felt about Alabama’s upcoming matchup and expressed reasoning as to why Alabama would come away victorious with his teammate Ta’Quon Graham.

Evans spent four seasons at Alabama. His path leading up to that point was unexpected as he attended Auburn High School. Ahead of his commitment, he received 11 crystal balls in favor of Auburn. However, he spurned the hometown team and elected to commit to Alabama instead.

During his career at Alabama, he was named a member of the All-SEC First Team and a First-team All-American. Both were awarded to Evans after a tremendous senior season. He recorded 74 tackles, six sacks, and 13 tackles for loss.

He has played with both the Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons during his professional career. He recently signed with the Falcons to a one-year deal worth $1.75 million this offseason.

Alabama is taking on the Longhorns in a highly anticipated week two matchup. The Crimson Tide won the last matchup between the two by a final score of 37-21 in the 2010 BCS National Championship.
