Another day... another scholarship available. This is the way things go for a new coach that is rebuilding a team from the ground up. Players decide to go elsewhere after the coach who recruited them is fired or leaves the program. Daylen Harrison is now the third Wyoming Cowboy basketball player who will not be returning for his junior season. He joins Desmar Jackson and Amath M'Baye who announced their intentions last week.

The format of this press release is starting to look very familiar:
LARAMIE, Wyo. (April 11, 2011) — The Wyoming Athletics Department announced on Monday that Cowboy basketball player Daylen Harrison will not return to the basketball program.
Harrison recently concluded his sophomore season at Wyoming. Neither the UW Athletics Department or head basketball coach Larry Shyatt will have any further comment.
No announcement yet of where Harrison will be heading. Harrison didn't play a lot of minutes in his first two years at Wyoming and actually had a big shot at seeing his minutes increase with the loss of Jackson and M'Baye.
No more transfers are expected from the rest of the team. Wyoming will now have four or five of scholarships available based on what happens with Brian Gibson. He left school for person reasons but isn't expected back. Without Gibson then Shyatt will have five scholarships available.
