TULSA, Okla. - Junior college forward Lew Evans signed a National Letter of Intent with The University of Tulsa, first-year TU Head Coach Danny Manning announced Tuesday.

The 6-10, 225-pound Evans, a native of Salt Lake City, is a freshman at Casper College in Wyoming. He will have three years of eligibility at TU.

Prior to joining Casper College, Evans spent one year at New Hampton Prep in New Hampshire, where he averaged 10 points and six rebounds for the Huskies.

"Lew will be a very good addition to our program," Tulsa Head Coach Danny Manning said. "His skill set fits into what we want to do as a basketball team. Lew is a post player that is capable of playing inside and outside on the perimeter. We know he will be well-prepared for Division I basketball playing for Coach (Joel) Davidson and Coach (Dan) Russell at Casper College. I've known Lew's family for a while. He's a good kid, and he'll fit our program to a `T'."

Evans graduated from Highland High School in Salt Lake City, where he lettered four years in basketball and three years in baseball. As a high school senior, Evans earned first-team Utah Class 4A All-State accolades after he led his team with 15 points and nine rebounds. He led Highland to the 2011 Utah Class 4A State Championship.

As a junior, Evans earned second-team all-state honors after averaging 10 points and six rebounds, and leading his team to a third-place finish in the state playoffs. He was honorable mention all-state and third-team all-region as a sophomore, when he averaged seven points and five rebounds at Highland High.
