Tyreke appears with Starks in commercial

Here's a great find by the bloggers over at I Bleed Blue and White -- the Villanova recruit Tyreke Evans in a short promotional film/commercial for Zipway athletic pants.

The commercial, which also appears on the official Zipway site, depicts Evans working out on an outdoor basketball court, while the former NBA star John Starks jogs through a city. Shots of an unrelated soccer player are also shown.

Starks, formerly of the New York Knicks, co-founded the Zipway brand earlier this year. The company promises its pants feature a revolutionary technology allowing them to come off in "0.03 seconds."

I am no expert in media-appearance rules for high-school athletes, but a little quick research leads me to believe no violations are committed as long as the high-school athlete is not paid for the appearance.

Evans looks good in the Zipway commercial, but it would be even nicer to see him in a Villanova uniform.

I'd love to see Tyreke in a 'Nova uniform, but he's a one and done. My guess is that he goes somewhere that's not going to care whether or not he goes to class (cough, cough, Memphis).

You are correct in saying that as long as he's not paid for the appearance, it is legit.

I don't want Tyreke.. He'd scare away recruits.. we don't need that for our program.. especially with a guy who's only going to stay one year

He'd scare away recruits? Tyreke is THE recruit. And look at Ohio State... a mediocre program until Oden and Conley went there... now they've landed blue chippers three years in a row.

Anonymous is correct, but we are still in need of a blue chip big man. Hopefully Tyreke will attract a good big man from the class of 2009 to come to Villanova
