During his tenure at Wyoming Cowboy Head Coach Craig Bohl and his staff have done a good job mining talent from Colorado. The Cowboy staff has hit Colorado’s big name schools and lesser known programs to gather athletic playmakers for both sides of the ball. Youngsters Connor Cain of Heritage, Andrew Wingard of Ralston Valley, Kevin Prosser of Overland and Valor’s Ryan Cummings are starters or major contributors for the young Cowboys.
Soon to be part of this Colorado to Wyoming pipeline is George Washington linebacker Adrian King. King announced he has made a verbal to Wyoming. Washington, a program that has struggled of late, is not a recruiting hotbed, but King is one of Colorado’s best players.
The 6-2 210 pounder is a very athletic linebacker that plays fast and nasty. King closes quickly and finishes with bad intentions. Further, King is solid in coverage and is also able to get after the passer. His athletic and diverse play will allow him to play as an every down backer in the Wyoming scheme.
King joins Lakewood cornerback Braden Smith as early class of 2016 commits to the young Cowboy squad. It is easy to see both King and Smith being early contributors on special teams and eventually working their way into the defensive rotation.
