Appalachian State’s Darrynton Evans is heading to the NFL.

Via Ethan Joyce of the Winston-Salem Journal, the redshirt junior running back is giving up his final year of college to declare for the 2020 NFL Draft.

“In four short years, we have accomplished so much: four-time Sun Belt champs, four consecutive bowl wins, two Power Five wins, a top-20 college football ranks, and more,” Evans wrote on Twitter. “We made history. Beyond the wins and losses, I’m thankful for the lifelong relationships, unforgettable memories, and an experience I will cherish forever.”

Evans ran for 1,480 yards and 18 touchdowns this season (with five more receiving and one kickoff return), as ASU finished 13-1, including wins over North Carolina and South Carolina.

For his career, he averaged 5.98 yards per carry.

    Is this a Division 1 school?
    Appalachian State is ranked #20 in the country.

  2. Evans is ready. App State has one of the best & consistent programs in the nation. They take power 5 left-overs and beat P5 teams. Evans will not be the only Mountaineer to hear his name called in the draft.

    The defense is astounding. The coaching tree is solid.

  3. Evans is a play maker… from his 94 yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the 2016 Camilla Bowl, to his situational awareness in picking up a fumbled snap and scoring in this year’s New Orleans Bowl! He will be an asset to any team!
