If the name Rashaan Evans sounds familiar to you, its because we told you the funny story of how Auburn put him on the website thinking he was going to commit and then he flipped to Alabama last minute. Now according to Evans, things have take a not so funny turn and have gotten bad for him and his family who like in Auburn:
“It’s getting worse,” Evans said on Monday evening. “Someone actually put out an article about my family’s business telling all Auburn fans not to go there. We are going to eventually start losing money. People are telling restaurants in the town not to serve us.
“It’s hard for me to go out and chill with my friends like I have always done because people keep coming up to me telling me I made a bad decision. It’s grown men. They are asking me why I did this to them. I told them I had to do what is best for me.
“You know I knew this would happen. I knew people would be mad and say stuff. I didn’t think it would be like this. It wasn’t a complete shock to me, but I guess that’s just how fans are.
“It’s just crazy right now. What’s getting crazy is people are going to the board at my school trying to get me in trouble. They are telling my teachers I am a bad kid and all this stuff. It’s just bad right now.
“Social media has definitely been the worst. People on Instagram are telling me how they hope I tear my ACL in game one. They will laugh when I do. They are saying my family is horrible and how they didn’t raise me right. It’s just crazy.”
This is the absolute worst part of recruiting. Wishing a kid not to well against your school is one thing, hoping for injury or trying to get his family to lose money is a totally different and frankly crazy thing. For some reason these fans think these kids owe them something, when reality couldn’t be farther from that.
He is allowed to go to school wherever he wants. These Auburn fans needs to get a capri sun and relax.
