On his twitter account, Evans posted, “as you all may have heard I’m no longer a Badger and no it’s not about the academics, just the best decision for me.”

The State Journal said despite what Evans tweeted, a source close to the situation said academic problems were the primary issue with UW.

Evans is listed as a four-star recruit by Scout.com and the No. 16 player nationally at his position.
