Dennis Evans, a four-star center in the class of 2023 and former Minnesota signee, has announced his commitment to Louisville.

The 7-foot-1 center out of Riverside (Calif.) Hillcrest requested his release from the Golden Gophers last month.

Evans signed with the Minnesota in November after committing to head coach Ben Johnson in October over offers from TCU, Kansas, Missouri, Texas, and more.

Evans is the No. 38 overall prospect in the 2023 class, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average. He ranks as the nation’s No. 4 center and the No. 8 senior recruit in California.

Scouting Report

Dennis Evan Scouting Report from On3’s Jamie Shaw:

Dennis Evans is a lengthy post prospect whose calling card is his defensive presence. A high-level rim protector, he can change the complexion of a game. Evans is very skinny and does not move well, right now, laterally. Offensively, there are question marks about what he does or can do. While inconsistent, the lefty does have touch, with range off the catch that extends beyond the three-point arc. He will need to continue developing, but there are some rim protection tools.
