Another productive day for the Wyoming Cowboys as two recruits are added to the recruiting class. This time they had one offensive linemen and one defensive linemen. The first commit was OL Jake Jones from Lakewood HS in Colorado. Jones is listed at 6-4 and 285lbs and has a two star rating from Rivals. He is the third and final offensive linemen to join the recruiting class. Air Force was the other school to offer a scholarship, Jones visited Laramie back on December 10th.
A few hours later word came out that DT Gary Lee from Victory HS in Tulsa, OK also committed to be a Cowboy in 2011. Lee is listed at 6-5 285lbs and also ranked two stars by Rivals. Lee visited Laramie back on January 14th and got along well with K Daniel Sullivan and LB Eddie Yarbrough who have also committed last week. Glad to see the Pokes get a defensive tackle for this recruiting class. They've had some defensive ends commit but no tackles until now. Lee also had offers from Arkansas State, Louisiana Tech and Tulsa for starters. It was reported that Mizzou was interested but didn't have a scholarship available.
Video highlights of each player after the jump plus news that the Pokes may not be done recruiting.
National Signing Day is eight day away and Wyoming is now at the 25 scholarship limit. That doesn't mean they won't continue to look at adding more players. Players can verbally commit to Wyoming but then delay their attendance until next year and the join the program the following winter. This is called greyshirting and so a athlete would have to pay their own way for the first semester or year of school before going on scholarship.
The Pokes lost a DB recruit earlier when Demarius Reed decided to look for schools in the Midwest. There may be another DB prospect visiting campus this weekend who will be part of the recruiting class. No names for who the athlete is but it seems they are visited in UW. I'm not sure if this 26th recruit would be the one to greyshirt or if an earlier recruit would instead.
Kind of nice to have the recruiting class all complete with some time to spare. Hopefully everyone stays committed and no other schools swoop in and grab a Wyoming commit. The music from Lee's video is very addictive if you just keep it playing in the background.
