Verbal commitments are worth as much as they paper they are written on. QB Cole Stoudt from Dublin, OH originally committed to Wyoming but not has now changed his mind and will attend Clemson next year. It is always disappointing when you lose highly rated recruit like Stoudt but it could open up the door for Cameron Coffman out of Missouri who visited Laramie on October 15th and is a duel threat QB.
The good news for Wyoming is that two recruits did commit to Wyoming and the Pokes picked up some much needed support on the defensive line. Miraldo Michel is from Florida but is currently playing at Ellsworth CC in Iowa Falls, IA. Rated at three stars by Rivals, Michel is listed at 6-3 250lbs. He will have two years of eligibility when he joins the Pokes next year. This is the first commitment Wyoming has received for the defensive line and will help provide quality depth right away. Hopefully he can make more of an impact then the two JUCO linemen that Wyoming signed last year who are both redshirting this year.
The Pokes also received a verbal commitment for an important but somewhat unheralded position: long snapper. Zach Ewan out of Phoenix, AZ is considered one of the top long snappers in the nation according to Scout.com. A very nice addition to the Wyoming Special Forces.
The Pokes now sit at seven commits for the year and are expecting to fill the maximum 25 scholarships this year.
