Wyoming Hosting Several Recruits; Gets a 6'6 330lb Walk-On

New, 1 comment

Another weekend in January means more recruits taking official visits to Wyoming. We've got some info on two of the athletes that will be taking in the sights this weekend. With signing day just 12 days away it will be a very busy time as the coaching staff looks to complete the recruiting class.

Dawson Housley is a 6-2 215 OLB from Sheldon HS in Eugene, OR. He's rated two stars by Rivals and has an outstanding high school career. Northwest Elite Index confirms that Housley is visiting this weekend and Wyoming is certainly an opportunity he likes. He also has offers from FCS Portland State and Weber State but will not attend either one. His choice comes down to the full ride at Wyoming or taking a preffered walk-on spot with his hometown Oregon Ducks.

Quintaz Struble is a 6'2 235lb three star defensive end from Heritage Hall HS in Oklahoma City, OK that will also be visiting this weekend. He had offers from Arizona and Colorado State earlier but those fell apart when the schools fired their staff. He had 62 tackles and eight sacks in his senior year.

There was news that came out Thursday that Garrett Angell from Lovell, WY had accepted a preffered walk-on spot with the Cowboys. The chance to be a Cowboy and try to earn a scholarship meant a lot to him. Angell is listed at 6-6 330lbs which is huge for a high school senior. He played offensive line and defensive tackle.

As the saying goes "you can't teach size". He still seems to be pretty raw in his development and would benefit from losing 15-20 pounds and spending some more time working on his strength training. Which is a perfect thing to with a redshirt year. With his frame and some better conditiioning he certainly could get some playing time with the Cowboys. I thought his footwork was much better when playing defense. He certainly shows a motor when attacking the quarterback. Playing just one position will probably help him as well.
