Evans Says

"We got a good defense coming in right now. We got Myles Murphy that’s down here with me right now. We just ready to get to college and get right.”


Mack Brown Says

“He’s a tremendous athlete. He’s one of the nation’s top defensive players. Thirty-seven sacks and 60 tackles for a loss during his career and you can see how he can run at 6-foot-6… we need pass rushers. We had trouble getting pressure on the passer this year without bringing a blitz and we need to do it with four people.”



Deana King Says

“Desmond is a freakish athlete that has all the potential in the world to be great. With a year under Coach Hess there is no telling what he can be. He is an amazing talent that should make the Tar Heel defense amazing in a few years.”
