Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl made mention yesterday that recruiting is going better than expected. I think we can all agree that is music to Poke fans ears. The staff brought in ten prospects this weekend and so far we have seen five new verbals. I will update this list as new verbals come in but in the mean time I'll make quick mention of the five new Cowboy commits.
6'3", 285-pound defensive tackle Sidney Malauulu was the first visitor to make a verbal commitment to the Cowboys. The Sierra Vista (Buena) Arizona prospect had offers from both Wyoming and North Dakota State, but decided Friday night he was already prepared to end the recruiting process. Hudl Highlights
The second prospect to verbal to the Cowboys was 6'2", 220-pound linebacker Alex Bush out of La Habra (La Habra) California. Bush selected the Cowboys over an offer from Iowa State. He made the decision to end his recruitment Saturday night. Hudl Highlights
The third prospect to verbal to the Cowboys was 6'4", 250-pound defensive end Conner Cain out of Littleton (Heritage) Colorado. Cain was a verbal to Eastern Washington before flipping to Wyoming earlier this morning. Cain had Wyoming out in front exiting the Summer but was only offered a preferred walk-on spot by the old staff. The moment the new staff was hired, an offer was out. Cain will most likely slide inside in college and play defensive tackle. Cain picked the Cowboys over offers from Eastern Washington, Northern Colorado, Montana, and South Dakota State.

Now we see a fourth verbal from the weekend in 6'6", 310-pound offensive guard Ryan Cumming out of Highland Ranch (Valor Christian) Colorado. Cummings committed to Wyoming over offers from South Dakota State and Indiana State. Cummings played on one of the better offensive lines in high school football with both tackles going to Kansas State and Army respectively. Hudl Highlights
It may have been nearly a week later but Wyoming has landed their fifth verbal from a 1/17 visitor. 6'4", 260-pound defensive end Daniel Vega out of Cedar Rapids (Xavier) Iowa has flipped his verbal from Illinois State to the Wyoming Cowboys. Vega is the second prospect from his high school joining Cole Turner in this recruiting class. There is some talk that Vega could move inside to become a 3-Tech defensive tackle at Wyoming but that is to be seen. Hudl Highlights
