Sewell Commit Adds Playmaker

Wyoming commitment Trent Sewell would bring the Cowboys a playmaker wide receiver with size at 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, while clocked at a 4.43 yard forty time.

A hot commodity early on with scholarship offers from UCLA, Washington State and Wyoming, he turned down an opportunity to commit to Washington because he wanted to explore all of his options and fell into the Cowboys hands. He visited UW on December 10th and committed shortly after his visit.

"During the recruiting process, I kind of learned that it was hard to really expect something," Sewell said. "I guess the best way to describe it is recruiting is just like dating. They're looking at you just as much as you're looking at them."

One of Wyoming's top high school prospects in Jordan Roberts will visit Laramie later in January. Roberts has an impressive 308 carries, 2,688 yards and 38 touchdowns. He had 2,938 yards of total offense and averaged 9.1 yards every time he touched the ball.

He participated in UW's one day camp last summer and was clocked at a 4.6 forty time. He is coached by former UW assistant coach Don Julian at Sheridan High School.

The Cowboys look to have some competition added to the defense end position for 2012 when Fullerton Community College in defensive end Jusin Bernthaler committed to UW. He'll bring some athleticism and quickness at 6-4 and 250 pounds.

The Pokes added Texarkana High School Lucas Wacha linebacker as a commitment and he'll make his official visit to Laramie on January 13th. The Pleasant Grove, Texas product has good speed and is listed a 6'2 and 195 pounds, and will bring a versatile defender to the program.

National signing day is set for February 1st and the number head coach Dave Christensen's staff signs on the day will be dependent on returnees to the program. First day of classes for the spring semester start on January 9th in Laramie.
