Even more great news for Wyoming recruiting front today. First it is learned that the Cowboys landed their first commitment for 2012 in WR/DB Eric Nzeocha. Later it came out that Wyoming should be getting back a member of their 2010 recruiting class.
RB Evan Williams from De LaSalle HS in Minnesota originally committed to Wyoming in January, 2010 and was set to join the Cowboys in the fall. Unfortunately Williams didn't qualify academically and ended up at Western Iowa CC. It looks like Williams has worked hard in the classroom and will be coming to Laramie after all. Williams is expected to enroll this December and will be able to take part in spring practices.
Evan Williams, a 5-foot-11, 185 pound running back from Minneapolis’ DeLaSalle High, is scheduled to enroll at UW in December.
Williams was part of UW’s 2010 recruiting class, but didn’t make it to fall camp because of academic reasons. As a senior, Williams was ranked as the ninth-best recruit in Minnesota by Rivals.com. He played quarterback as a senior, ran for 2,301 yards, threw for 1,266 yards and accounted for 41 touchdowns.
Very happy for Wyoming and Williams that he will still become a Cowboy. When he first signed with the Pokes I was very impressed with quickness and agility. He is able to change directions quickly without losing his momentum. I posted his highlight video from his junior year and I'm sure you will be impressed.
The Wyoming running backs will already be very deep in 2012 since there are no seniors this year. Alvester Alexander and Ghaali Muhammad will be both seniors in 2012, there will be still depth in 2013 with Williams, Brandon Miller, Nehemie Kankolongo and Kody Sutton.
