Evers transferred to Wisconsin before the 2023 season after one year with the Oklahoma Sooners. He was the No. 137 overall player in the class of 2022 and No. 8 quarterback. That rating didn’t translate onto the field, as he could not crack the depth chart at either of his first two stops.

The highly-touted quarterback was third on the pecking order at Wisconsin this offseason — behind projected starter Tyler Van Dyke and sophomore Braedyn Locke.

He now joins a UConn program where a starting job could be available. The Huskies are off a 3-9 record in 2023, that after a program-best 6-7 2022 season.
