Former University of Wyoming wide receiver Marcus Harris was just named as a finalist for the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame for the second consecutive year.

"This is a great honor for one of our all-time great Cowboys,” Wyoming athletics director Tom Burman said. "Now he is being considered for the ultimate honor a college football player can receive."

Harris was a two-time All American, 1996 Biletnikoff Award winner and set an NCAA record with 4,518 career receiving yards. He now ranks fifth on the all-time list.

If inducted, Harris would join former Pokes Eddie Talboom and Jay Novacek in the Hall of Fame. Former Wyoming coach Dennis Erickson is also on the ballot. The inductees will be announced before the 2019 College Football National Championship on January 7th.
