The Wyoming Cowboy quarterback depth took a major hit on Saturday when redshirt freshman, and co-starting quarterback, Emory Miller decided to transfer from Wyoming due to personal reasons. Junior college 2012 commit Cody Sokol who has qualified for Wyoming and could enroll in Wyoming this August to join the team.
Over at Cowboy Altitude they found an interview by incoming quarterback Adam Pittser in the Northwest Herald about the quarterback situation at Wyoming:
"It definitely opens things up," Pittser said Friday. "The kid who was here [Carta-Samuels] was really good. From the start, they said I'd compete for the starting job. Emory had some experience, but it looks like I can compete for the starting job right away."
Pittser and freshman Brett Smith are now the only scholarship quarterbacks on the roster. Pittser said there are walk-ons and a junior college player coming in who might also compete.
That last line is interesting, because Pittser may know something we do not because there are no junior college quarterbacks on the roster or expected to be at Wyoming this August. Or, he may just be talking in generics about who he will be competing with.
The two walk-ons are current third-string quarterback Josh Smith and Zaquoya Parham (awesome name by the way) who is an incoming freshman and is a dual-threat quarterback.
It still looks like the quarterback position will be down to Smith and Pittser, but if Sokol does decide to come over a year early it will at least help with the depth at the quarterback position.
