It's been a steady climb up the recruiting ladder for Prairie Ridge junior quarterback Samson Evans this winter.
Evans, who took part in last Monday's Edgy Tim Underclassmen Showcase powered by EFT Football Academy, took a few minutes to fill us in on his latest recruiting news, including receiving early offers from the likes of Illinois, Iowa and Syracuse.
He also described Prairie Ridge's run to a Class 6A state title last year.
Check out the interview in the video above.

We are putting High School Lites, Chicagoland’s top prep sports show, in the hands of area basketball fans in our “Viewers’ Choice Game of the Week.” Fans will get the chance to pick one game that the @CSNPreps crew will cover on Friday night. We will send our cameras to the game that gets the most votes; highlights of that game will appear on that night’s “High School Lites” broadcast at 11:00pm. The show also live streams at csnchicago.com. High School Lites will also have broadcast replays at 7:30am and 8:30am the following Saturday. This week, for the first time ever in our “Viewers’ Choice” poll, we will have girls basketball as our focus:
Warren at Lake Forest, 7:00pm
Glenbrook South at Maine South, 7:00pm
Vernon Hills at Maine West, 7:30pm
Poll opens Monday at 12:00pm and closes Thursday at 4:00pm. Here is what fans need to do to vote:
**Follow @CSNPreps on Twitter.
**Note the “pinned Tweet” atop the @CSNPreps feed. Vote for the game you want us to cover.
**Spread the word!
We will make an announcement on @CSNPreps just after 4pm Thursday with the official results of which game will be covered. And as a reminder, be sure to follow @CSNPreps for updates on the “Viewers’ Choice Game of the Week,” along with other basketball news, scores and highlights this season.
