Two more recruits on campus this weekend

New, 4 comments
With three offers left to fill and less than fourteen days DC and his staff are working on finishing up the final touches on the 2010 recruiting class. The Pokes look at sign a QB, DL and DB with their three remaining scholarships. Players that cover two of those three spots will be in Laramie this weekend. GoWyoGo had the scoop on which players were coming to Laramie.

QB Emory Miller from Horn HS out of Mesquite TX. Currently ranked two stars by Rivals.

A dual threat QB listed at 5'10 190 and can run 4.6 for the 40. The Pokes have looked at dual threat and Pro Style QB's this year and I think the former is the way to go. ACS has proven to be tough for opposing defenses to catch and his backup should have the same skill set. In the unfortunate event that an injury occurred to ACS a backup QB with similar abilities would mean the offense could use all the same plays and not have to scale back which could be crucial in a big game.

Rushing Passing
Year Att Yds TD PA PC Pct Yds TD Int
2009 (Sr.) 166 706 11 333 213 64.0 2,678 22 11
2008 (Jr.) 150 553 12 366 250 68.3 2,740 19 15

Here is a highlight video of Miller with no sound. The first half is mainly QB runs while second half shows off his arm.

Last weekend the Pokes signed Kurt Taufa'asau out of JC New Mexico Mility Institute. While his teammate and fellow linemen Bernard "BJ" Sumter will make the same trip seven days later. Sumter is one big fellow clocking in at 6'2 310 pounds (ding). This would be the perfect recruit to bring in and take the spot of NG Fred Givens who had been a fixture in that spot for three years. Sumter is big and strong with a 405 max bench and 505 max squat.

Here is his highlight video with fat beats included:
