Wyoming Football Adds Five Players To Recruiting Class
The Wyoming Cowboys wrapped up their 2019 football recruiting class with an additional five players that signed Wednesday on the second National Signing Day.
Head coach Craig Bohl announced the signing of three running backs, a defensive tackle, and a linebacker to round out the 2019 class. That brings the total to 24 high school players that have signed with the Pokes.
Bohl had numerous compliments about these five recruits. He spoke about their background, the recruiting process, hitting California and Texas big in this class and more on Wednesday.
This was a theme of Coach Bohl's during today's press conference, even though the Tweet came Tuesday.
All five these signees were three-star recruits by Rivals, 247 Sports, or ESPN, and all of them had offers from Power 5 programs.
UW is ranked sixth in the Mountain West composite recruiting rankings by 247 Sports.
