Darren Evans not bothering Ryan Williams
By Heather Dinich
Virginia Tech fans might want to take a cue from Darren Evans -- former running back for the Hokies -- and leave Ryan Williams to make his decision in peace.
Evans announced his decision to leave early for the NFL draft in a 3 p.m. teleconference today, but Williams has yet to do so. Evans said he's not pestering his teammate about his decision.
“I understand what he’s going through, and as a friend I’d rather not be bugging him about it, because I know enough people are,” Evans said. “Just today I’ve had a gazillion phone calls and texts from different people. I appreciate everybody’s concern, but I know he’s getting just [as much] if not more because of the type of player he is. I’ve been leaving that side of our friendship alone until he makes a decision. Then I’ll be there for him.”
