The SEC recruitment races heated up this weekend around Rashaan Evans as Alabama and Auburn try to lure the five star recruit to their colleges.
Evans is a highly rated linebacker from Auburn and has received increasing attention from the Tigers, Crimson Tide and UCLA Bruins during this recruitment season.
The player is still to decide where to attend and coaches from the Alabama based schools travelled to his hometown in order to recruit him further.
The coaches attended the 80th birthday of Evans' grandfather at a hotel and, much to the amusement of the other guests even took to the dance floor at one point of the evening.
Evans' father, Alan told AL.com: "We walked in and the first people we saw was the entire Auburn staff standing there on our left and to my right was Kirby Smart and the Bama staff. I was like 'This has never happened in Auburn before and probably never will again."
Evans continued: "We were pulled left and right all night from Auburn to Bama. The coaches shook hands and talked but you could tell they were there for one thing and one thing only. Then the live band started playing and the Alabama and Auburn coaches hit the dance floor. It was unbelievable. I just couldn't stop laughing."
Rashaan will make his decision on Wednesday at National Signing Day and his verdict will be highly anticipated as one of the top recruits still to make a decision.
Evans is rated as the number one linebacker in the country and the third best player in the state by rivals.com.
