2018 Recruiting Breakdown: Wyoming

Did the Cowboys find the type of players who will fit their system? Wyoming is a football program that is very similar to San Diego State when it comes to recruiting. An outsider may look at their class and think it’s full of some solid players but overall doesn’t have anyone with that “wow factor”.

On what was supposed to be a night...
