Wyoming Picks Up Two OL Commits In Kurtis Stirneman and Connor Riese

Troy Babbitt-US PRESSWIRE

Two Midwest recruits came out to Laramie this weekend and left as Cowboys.

Bad news for Western Michigan turned into great news for Wyoming on the recruiting front. When the Broncos fired their head coach Bill Cubit last week it left several commits in limbo. With uncertainty in the future several of those athletes have started to look elsewhere.

Wyoming has been recruiting the Midwest this year and was able to take advantage of a couple offensive linemen opening up their recruiting. OL Kurtis Stirneman from Marian Central Catholic HS (IL) and OL Connor Riese from D.C. Everest High School (WI) took a Thanksgiving trip to Laramie to check out campus and the game. Per their twitter accounts they each verbally committed to Coach Christensen before making the trek back home.

It's great that Riese and Stirneman know each other already. That will help them in making the adjustment to school and the team.

Rivals has Riese rated three stars with offers from Western Michigan and Alabama State. He is listed at 6-7 305lbs and is the 14th best prospect in Wisconsin.

Stirneman is listed as 6-6 280 lbs with offers from several MAC schools: Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Ball State and Bowling Green. He is not yet rated by Rivals, he has received a 73 grade from 24/7.

Wyoming now sits at nine commits for the 2013 class, four of those are offensive linemen.

We were able to track down some video highlights of both commits.
