The Wyoming Cowboys picked up two basketball recruits out of five who visited Wyoming over the weekend in point guard Josh Adams and shooting guard Jason McManamen. The three players who did not commit are forward Eric McCree, forward/center Austin Halderson and forward Stephon Blair.
Adams comes from Denver and averaged 16.1 points and 4.4 rebounds as a junior, and here is what he had to say about his commit to Wyoming ($):
"I checked the campus out this summer when I attended coach Shyatt's team camp and walked around campus, but got to see it in more detail this time around and really liked what I saw," said Adams. "I like the new staff, coach Shyatt and his son Jeremy, coach Allen Edwards. They want to play an uptempo, pressure type style that fits me. The players and the recruits seem to get along well and it is a solid decision and a good fit."
Here are some highlights of Adams:
McManamen is a Wyoming native and only fifth local in 15 years to earn a scholarship for the Cowboy basketball team. During his junior year he averaged 16.1 points per game and here is his comments about committing to Wyoming ($):
"I was surprised but mostly happy with the offer and accepting a chance to go to Wyoming," said McManamen. "I grew up in Wyoming and always followed the basketball team and want to get the excitement back. I know they graduate six seniors next year and we're going to be a young basketball team with five freshmen and five sophomores next year."
Here are some highlights for McManamen:
