Chris Evans

Without Higdon or Evans, Tru Wilson is the top returning rusher for MI heading into 2019. The Wolverines defeated the UCF Knights 51 - 14.

MI running back Chris Evans, the top contender to be the starting running back on the depth chart in 2019, is not with the program at this time, the Detroit News confirmed Tuesday.

Rumors have been swirling as of late regarding senior running back Chris Evans' status with the team. "Privacy laws prohibit us from commenting further". "I'm working through it now".

Evans explained via Twitter that his issues are academic related - and that he intends to continue his career, once he gets things worked out. "I will still continue my career at the University of MI".

The Clippers will also send fan favorite big man Boban Marjanovic and reserve forward Mike Scott to the loaded Sixers. The Sixers had offered two second-rounders to the New Orleans Pelicans for forward Nikola Mirotic earlier this week.

Evans finished the 2018 season as Michigan's second-leading rusher behind Karan Higdon who left for the NFL.

In his three years with the Wolverines, Evans rushed for 1,722 yards, but had his least productive season in 2018, rushing for just 423 yards - 260 some yards less than his output in 2017.

Michigan's 2019 recruiting class included four-star running back Zach Charbonnet.

Jim Harbaugh and company will be paying close attention to Evans and his academics as the 2019 college football season draws near.
