Evans, a redshirt senior from Inglewood, Calif., became a consistent producer for the Bruin offense in 2012, starting all 14 games. He led the team with 60 receptions, a mark which ranks as the eighth-most in school single-season history. Evans also led the team in receiving yards, with 877, the 11th-highest total in school single-season history. Evans caught a career-long 71-yard pass against Stanford in the Rose Bowl and also made a career-high eight catches against USC for 114 yards in UCLA's 38-28 victory over the Trojans. He also shined in the team's appearance in the Holiday Bowl, making seven receptions, including a 24-yard scoring pass from quarterback Brett Hundley. For his efforts, Evans was named an honorable mention All-Pac-12 player by league coaches.
