Spavital using the portal to transform Texas State’s roster

  • Texas State has won just five games the last two years but has made over its team with transfers.
  • Among the 21 transfers in the offseason are three Canadians including freakish athletic Liam Dobson.
  • “You can really feel the chemistry,” said quarterback Brady McBride, one-time Memphis transfer.

SAN MARCOS — Ty Evans came to Texas State by a most circuitous route.

He was originally supposed to be an Arkansas Razorback. But Bret Bielema got fired last November, and the talented quarterback heard the rumblings and began looking elsewhere, Texas State coach Jake Spavital said.

Evans also thought he’d be a Colorado Buffalo, but that program made a coaching change too. Head coach Mike MacIntyre was out, so Evans once again searched for a new school.

He landed at North Carolina State last December, but offensive coordinator Eli Drinkwitz took a job at Appalachian State two days later and then jumped to Missouri. So for a fourth time, Evans looked for a home, and he found one with the Bobcats.

“So he’s a junior in the classroom,” Spavital said, “and a freshman on the field. And he’s a really good quarterback.”
