Meet R.J. Evans

R.J. Evans is a 6-3 and 210 pound guard.  He played three years for Holy Cross and averaged 11.5 points, 4.8 boards, and 2.8 assists a game.  He missed 21 games last season because he sprained his MCL in a pick up basketball game.  While visiting his sister, Kastine, who plays for Kentucky, he decided to forgo his last year at Holy Cross.  He felt that he missed out on playing on such a big stage like he sister was playing at.  So when UConn expressed interest in him transferring, he leapt at the chance.  He’s worked out at camps with Kemba Walker and played with Tyler Olander in the Greater Hartford Pro-Am.  Not only is he a good basketball player, but he’s also a good role model and is looking to get a Master’s degree in economics.  He’ll have plenty of opportunity to get minutes and be that role player off the bench like Donnell Beverly and Craig Austrie were.
