Baylor Lands First-Team All-CUSA Transfer EDGE Jaques Evans

NCAA Football: Baylor at Cincinnati

After taking an official visit over the weekend, Western Kentucky transfer edge defender Jaques Evans has committed to Dave Aranda and the Baylor Bears.

Listed at 6-foot-2, 250 pounds, Evans recorded 106 tackles, 13.5 TFLs, 8.5 sacks, and 27 QB hurries in 2022, earning All-CUSA first-team honors that season.

In 2023, Evans missed all but six games with injury, but he appeared in 33 games over a three year span and totaled 178 tackles, 18.5 for loss, 11.5 sacks, seven PBU’s, five fumble recoveries, and two forced fumbles.


Evans becomes the top pass-rushing option on Baylor’s roster entering the 2023 season, as the Bears weren’t productive in that category last season and will hope to be much better heading into next season.

A product of Dublin, Georgia, Evans was the No. 693 prospect in the Class of 2020 and the No. 40-ranked athlete in the class.

Now, playing for Dave Aranda and a retooled Baylor defensive staff, Evans will hope to make the most of his final year of eligibility playing in the Big 12.
