2015 Cowboy Football Recruiting Class Is Highlighted By Special Accolades [VIDEO]
Wyoming head football coach Craig Bohl and his staff unveiled their second recruiting class Wednesday on National Signing Day 2015.
This year's class includes 23 recruits from 11 states. California and Oklahoma produced four recruits apiece, while the Pokes went south to Colorado for three more.
The Cowboys went heavy on defense with 14 players signing on that side of the ball. It was fairly balanced with four defensive lineman, five linebackers and five in the secondary. Offensively, UW signed nine recruits, which included five at the receiver position.
The significant news was the first Wyoming football recruit in history to be named a Parade All-American. That is running back Kellen Overstreet from Missouri. The Cowboys also grabbed two Gatorade Players of the Year in C.J. Johnson from Nebraska and Andrew Wingard from Colorado.
Head coach Craig Bohl gave an overview of his second recruiting class and discussed the direction they went this year and why. He also alluded to the significance of the preferred walk-ons they have offered, plus a little more light on the two signees from in-state, Josh Harshman and Logan Wilson from Casper Natrona County High School.
In all, the 2015 Cowboy football recruiting class includes two junior college players and 21 high school seniors. JUCO quarterback Josh Allen and freshman receiver Joseph Parker have already enrolled in school this semester.
The Cowboys do have one scholarship remaining.
