Southern High's Kwame Evans, an All-Metro first-team pick the past two years, said Tuesday that he will sign a letter of intent with George Washington University when the NCAA signing period begins Wednesday.
Evans, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard, has visited George Washington, but canceled visits with Temple, Miami (Fla.), Penn State and Providence.
"I pretty much made up my mind after my visit [last month], but I didn't want to tell anyone," Evans said, adding that GW coach Mike Jarvis and assistant Eddie Meyers "have the type of learning system at George Washington like we have at Southern. You just keep learning how to play the game."
Evans said the short distance from Washington also was a factor, because his biggest fan -- his mother -- still can see him play regularly.
