Here’s everything you need to know about Rhody’s newest addition on defense.
Hometown: Coatesville, PA
High School: Coatesville High School
Weight: 175 lbs
Per a tweet from the official Rhody Football account, Evans’ high school coach called him “the best pure cornerback I’ve ever coached at the high school level”. Not sure if you can get higher praise than that. Ahkema tallied 10 interceptions in his final two seasons at Coatesville, and it was enough to get him noticed by Temple (the fact that he’s from PA probably didn’t hurt, either). But in the end, Evans selected Rhode Island, and URI will try to make the most of his play-making ability on defense.
