Wyoming Adds S Jesse Sampson (COC) And CB Kerwin Thomas (Wagoner HS, OK)

Cooper Neill

After a quiet weekend on the recruiting front, we now have two new commitments for the Pokes.

I thought we had heard the last of recruiting news for 2012. Not the case as Wyoming picked up two additional commitments for the 2013 class today. With the Pokes looking to shore up their defense they found some some help for their secondary.

The first commit was safety Jesse Sampson from College of the Canyons a junior college out of California. Sampson stands 6'1 200lbs. He is not currently rated by Rivals, he is listed as also holding an offering from Stony Brook. Sampson was one of several recruits that visited Laramie two weeks ago. After spending two years at College of the Canyons, Sampson will have two years of eligibility remaining and a redshirt available. Despite only playing nine of the teams 10 games Sampson still led the team with 53 tackles. He also had two and a half tackles for loss and one interception. Twice he had 11 tackles in a game.

The second commit was a high school senior out of Wagoner HS in Wagoner, OK. Kerwin Thomas is a 5'10 165lb cornerback. He is listed as an athlete on some sights since he also played wide receiver and running back. I would expect him to end up on the defense side of the ball. He was recently named to the All-State team by the Oklahoma Coaches Association. Rivals does not have a rating for Thomas at this time. No other offers are listed but there was interest shown by Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Tulsa and Arkansas State. While Thomas is speedy with a 4.4 40 yards time, he was a bit underweight and that meant many schools didn't recruit him very hard.. He has focused on bulking up and putting on some weight this senior year. If that trend continues then he could be a very good find for the Pokes.

Wyoming now sits at 15 commits on the year. They are expected to sign 23 on national signing day. Here is footage of both athletes.
