Timberline High senior Asan Neil-Evergin became South Sound's first football player this fall to give a verbal commitment to a Division I or 1-AA program, announcing he'll play for Eastern Washington, Blazers coach Nick Mullen said Tuesday. 

Neil-Evergin, a 5-foot-9, 175-pound running back/defensive back, received a scholarship offer from the Eagles of the summer. 

Neil-Evergin is out for the season after a tear in his spleen surfaced, prompting Mullen to shut his senior down for precautionary reasons. Neil-Evergin hasn't played since Week 1 against River Ridge.
