The recruiting momentum has really picked up for the Wyoming football program. Coming off a 30-28 victory over #13 Boise State, the Cowboys are starting to pay dividends from their 6-2 start.
Over the weekend the staff hosted a good number of recruits and so far we have seen two verbal commitments. Joining Lacey (WA) River Ridge running back Trey Dorfner on the commitment list is 6’5″, 190-pound linebacker Davon Wells-Ross out of Omaha (NE) North.
Wells-Ross was offered by the Cowboys back on April 7th. He selected Wyoming over offers from Illinois State, Missouri State, Northern Iowa and South Dakota State.
His lead recruiter was offensive line coach Scott Fuchs.
Wells-Ross announced his commitment via Twitter.
“I would like to thank all the schools that offered me their time and presented me with the opportunity to fulfill my childhood dream. However, after much deliberation and speaking with those I love, I would like to announce that I will be furthering my academic and football career at the University of Wyoming,” said Wells-Ross.
The rangy linebacker has the look of a future defensive end due to his height/length but the staff is looking at him as either a Sam or Will linebacker.
On the season, Wells-Ross has 52 tackles, 2 sacks and 3 interception (2 returned back for touchdowns).
The Omaha North star defender joins Gretna offensive lineman Patrick Arnold as the second verbal commitment from Nebraska. Coach Craig Bohl and staff has really put a emphasis on Nebraska prospects as vital building blocks for future rosters.
Wells-Ross is not rated by Rivals, Scout or 247 Sports as of this moment.
