Oklahoma’s newest head coach former Clemson defensive coordinator Bret Venables, was able to land one of his biggest recruit targets thus far at the Quarterback position in Flower Mounds Nick Evers.
Evers is a fours star quarterback who was formally committed to the Florida Gators, however, that all changed when former head coach Dan Mullens was let go by the Gators. The decommit did not come right away for Evers, he took to Twitter saying “Coach Mullen and Coach (Garrick) McGee I believe are great coach, but even better men!” Evers would go on to say how much being in alignment with the head coach and that he would be “staying verbally committed” also noting that “it would be reckless to understand options in till a new coach is named. I chose Florida” . Find out more on Evers decommitment from Flordia.
Evers was one of the best quarterback prospects in the 2022 cycle that was still available after his decommitment. Oklahoma wanted no timer moving in and making Evers a top target.

On Friday, December 10th, Evers took an official visit to Norman, Oklahoma to meet the newest staff and visit the Sooners campus and facilities. He must have liked what he heard and the completion at quarterback with Williams in front of Evers, Evers may have a chance at fighting for a starting position as soon as he steps on campus.
The Sooners are getting a dual-threat quarterback that is athletically gifted and throws the ball beautifully. Evers is a big-time playmaker and a great leader on the field. His presence is commanding once he steps foot on the field and he can lead a team downfield with his legs or are.
Evers finishes his illustrious high school career completing 380 of 624 of his passes with, 4,958 yards passing, 44 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions, plus added 18 touchdowns on the ground, and 894 yards rushing.
