Wyoming Offers a Pair of Houston Preps

Last year Wyoming had great success in recruiting in Texas and this year they are looking to continue where they left off.  The Pokes recently offered a couple of athletes (Scout $$) from the Houston area, WR Marcus Johnson from Clear Springs HS and TE Cody Small at Cypress Woods HS.  Last year the Pokes landed a total of nine student athletes from the Lone Star state.

Marcus Johnson stands 6'1 180lbs and runs 4.51 in the 40.  A very solid outside receiver he boasts strong hands and plenty of offers.  Air Force, Kansas, Navy, Northwestern, Rice and Wake Forest have all extended offers.  He certainly has a variety of schools with different systems that are contending for his services.  The opportunity to play for a service academy has it's benefits but the spread offense at Wyoming can offer way more chances for catches for receivers.

Don't let the name of Cody Small fool you for one second.  At 6'4 234lbs Small is a versatile athlete that lines up at tight end, defensive end and long snapper.  All the recruiting services have him listed as TE but there isn't any footage available of him playing offense.  He runs a 4.7 in the 40 and his only other offer is from Air Force.   ESPN recruiting analyst Jeremy Crabtree was impressed with Small's frame when he saw him workout this past April.

Interesting to note is that this year Wyoming is actively recruiting prototypical tight ends that are larger and stronger, instead of the converted wide receiver mold we've seen the last couple years. The Pokes have also offered TE Zac Veatch from Broken Arrow, OK who is 6'4 245lbs.  Perhaps Christensen is trying to beef up the size along side the offensive line and give the quarterback some more protection.

Here is video that shows what Small can do at defensive end.  Certainly shows great movement and closing speed.  Here are some results from his combine at Under Armour.
