"I've got the best of both worlds," Jordan said.
Scott and Tenika met at OU. Tenika was dating another Sooner, linebacker Frank Blevins. When Scott returned to school after leaving the NFL, he reconnected with Tenika.
"I liked Scott because he knew what he wanted," Tenika said. "He was smart and intelligent. He stood up for what was right."
They were married on Jordan's first birthday — "We did things backward," Tenika said — and now also have daughters Jacie, 12, and Jessika, 11.
Scott says he never cared what people thought. "You meet who you meet," he said. "I've been blessed. She's a good woman, a great wife."
What's it like to grow up in a bi-racial family? What's it like to not? "Seems normal," Jordan said.
Said Scott, "We live in Norman. We're not driving through Tupelo, Miss. We wouldn't take a family vacation to southeastern Arkansas. I understand there are people out there. But you gotta live your life. We don't have any problems."
Jordan Evans' addition to the Sooner roster won't excite the recruiting groupies. Before OU offered a scholarship, Evans' list of potential schools included New Mexico, Ohio, Memphis, Nevada-Las Vegas, Louisiana-Lafayette and Colorado State.
"A late bloomer, no matter where you're at, they get missed early," Scott Evans said.
Jordan was a smallish eighth grader. But he grew about six inches in six months and entered high school almost 6 feet tall.
Jordan still was skinny as a Norman North sophomore. But he started maturing, getting stronger, and after North beat Lawton in the 6A playoffs in November 2011, Scott had a talk with his son.
"I told him, you can play Division I college football," Scott said. "It took me awhile to see that. It's going to take college coaches awhile to see that.
